What a great story! I'm sure there are more of a similar nature out there. A great Christmas gift for their family.

In regards to the article "Black Woman bought slave husband", we enjoyed reading the article & watching the video. We would love more on the story of the whole family. The article mentioned several famous people as members of that family. Thank you again for an interesting read.
