Author Kevin Duffus On The Real Blackbeard

Almost 300 years ago, Blackbeard the Pirate ran aground off the coast of North Carolina and, to this day, treasure hunters believe there is a rich trove of pirate's booty hidden somewhere in the state. Historian and author Kevin Duffus believes he has found Blackbeard's treasure, but it's not the form of riches you might imagine and you won't find it in history books. Duffus will join us to paint a detailed picture of Blackbeard's impact on the state, the real treasure he sought and a glimpse into a pirate's life that may surprise you. Blackbeard's real treasure revealed, when Charlotte Talks.
