About the Author

Douglas A .Blackmon

Blackmon's book grew out of a 2001 story written while serving as the Wall Street Journal's Atlanta bureau chief. 

An unmarked African American burial ground on land owned by U.S. Steel led to Blackmon's exploring the policies responsible for the Post-Reconstruction re-enslavement of Blacks.

He late served as executive co-producer of a PBS documentary based on his award winning book.

Until recently, he served as host and executive director of American Forum, a public affairs program produced at the University of Virginia's Miller Center.
