Author Andi Cumbo-Floyd: Making American Slavery Less Abstract

Author Andi Cumbo-Floyd joins host Seth Daire to discuss her books, which involve researching the history of enslaved persons and grappling with how the legacy of slavery impacts us today. In The Slaves Have Names: Ancestors Of My Home, Andi explored the histories of the enslaved persons who had lived on the plantation that later became her home. Steele Secrets and Charlotte and the Twelve: A Steele Secrets Story are fictional accounts through the eyes of Mary Steele, who happens upon ghosts whose presence challenges her community to learn more about the plight of African-Americans there and face uncomfortable truths in the present.
