Blind Tom Bethune

Coincident to my previous "Kronikles" post, I have begun to divest myself of some of the research materials for my 1998 book Hot from Harlem: Profiles in Classic African-American Entertainment. Up for auction on Ebay at the present time is an 1876 programme for the African-American composer Blind Tom Bethune (aka Thomas Green Wiggins). Here is the link to Ebay. My auction listing contains several pages of material on Bethune.

Subsequent to the section on Blind Tom in my book, Hot From Harlem, there have appeared a CD of his music performed by John Davis and a biography.
