Book Talk by Vladimir Alexandrov, author of "The Black Russian"
Author and scholar Vladimir Alexandrov, Ph.D., reads from "The Black Russian," named a Booklist "Top 10 Biography" for 2013 and a "Best Book of the Month" by Amazon.com. The biography examines the remarkable life of Frederick Bruce Thomas, a son of former slaves who became a Russian citizen and one of Moscow's richest theater and restaurant owners. After escaping the Russian Revolution, he made a second fortune in Constantinople with nightclubs that introduced jazz to Turkey. But he fell on hard times, landing in debtor's prison and dying in Constantinople in 1928. "The Black Russian" sheds new light on this influential but forgotten man. The event is co-sponsored by the African American Museum & Library at Oakland.
