Been a long time since I wrote a feature-length magazine article. Enjoyed writing this one, which concerns unreliable sources, cavalry, Greensboro, race relations, barbers, and more.
Photo by Lisa Scheer, who also taught me a lot of what I know about African-American intellectual history and Warnersville. She was mentored on the latter topic by James Griffin and the late Otis Hairston, Jr., and has explored it in depth with the help of Harvey Robinson and Carolyn de Berry.
Lots of interesting stories to tell in this town.
