MIGHTYMOUSE TOUR   This week Myrt explains the process for bypassing the semi-reliable email delivery of her columns in favor of her BLOG. Just what are BLOGs anyway?


  • Anna Madgigine Jai Kingsley: African Princess, Florida Slave, Plantation Slaveowner by Daniel L. Schafer. University Press of Florida: March 2003. ISBN: 0813026164.

    The American Library Association reports "...Schafer traces the history of Anna Madgigine Jai from her homeland of Senegal, where she was captured at about 13 years of age in 1806 and sold to Zephaniah Kingsley, a maritime merchant, slave trader, and later an abolitionist. Kingsley eventually married Anna, made her manager of his plantation, and fathered four children with her. Anna was an independent, enterprising woman, who managed the plantation for 25 years until expanding U.S. territory threatened race relations, the family's cohesion, and inheritance rights."

    The title came to my attention because Schafer is the featured speaker tomorrow morning at the Florida Heritage House Museum at Manatee Community College here in Bradenton, Florida.
