Vladmir Alexandrov Reading & Booksigning

11 Mar 2013

On Monday, March 11 at 7PM, Vladmir Alexandrov will read from and sign his book The Black Russian. The Black Russian tells the story of Frederick Bruce Thomas, born in 1872 to former slaves who became prosperous farmers in Mississippi, until their land was stolen and his father brutally murdered. Frederick eventually settled in Russia in 1899 and prospered there. Cornel West, author of Race Matters, says Alexandrov’s book is “about one of the most fascinating black men of modern times,” and calls it a “masterful work!”

This event is free and open to the public.
