The Last Days of Black Beard the Pirate

The Last Days of Black Beard the Pirate Kevin Duffus rejoins the program - he's the author of several books, including "Shipwrecks of the Outer Banks," "The Lost Light: The Mystery of the Misssing Cape Hatteras Fresnel Lens" and now his latest, "The Last Days of Black Beard the Pirate." We'll talk about some myths and strongly held beliefs that many have about the famous pirate and which ones turn out not to be fact. Duffus has done painstaking research over a period of several years and has uncovered some interesting truths about the man best known as Black Beard the Pirate. We'll talk about them and his North Carolina roots on the next Charlotte Talks with Mike Collins. Contact the show: 704-926-9323, 800-603-9323, charlottetalks@wfae.org or comment at Charlotte Blogs.
