Ned will be speaking today (Thursday, October 8) at a conference at SUNY Old Westbury (in Long Island, easily reachable from NYC) from 3:50-5:20 p.m. We're among those people who likes conferences because we get to meet people
like Alejandro de la Fuente, author of Havana and the Atlantic in the Sixteenth Century.
In the meantime, up on the internet is a Q&A with the authors of The American Slave Coast: A History of the Slave-Breeding Industry. Go here:
October 7, 2015 • Behind the Scenes by Meaghan Miller: Ned and Constance Sublette, co-authors of The American Slave Coast
The American Slave Coast itinerary, so far (not including Slave Coast's radio or television dates, however, nor does it include writing pieces requested about Slave Coast and / or Cuba, so far):
On Friday (October 8) Ned will be guest DJ starting at 4 p.m. on Felipito Palacios's annual multi-day, glorious, caffeine-intensive radio Salsathon on WUSB, Stony Brook University. He doesn't know how long he'll go, but Felipito always gets at least three hours of music from Ned. He'll play some of his favorite records of the last couple of years, heavy on the Latin jazz or whatever you wanna call it, but he calls it artistic perfection. Yes, WUSB streams. Tune them in!
On Oct. 15, we'll be in State College, PA, where we'll talk at Penn State on the 15th at 4 p.m. about The American Slave Coast. We're excited about that, and about all of what comes after, including but not limited to TASC events at the following . . .
