All In with Pauline Hawkins
Thomas Ott earned his Ph.D. in Caribbean History from the University of Tennessee and is the author of The Haitian Revolution: 1791-1804 and Saturday and the Witch Woman. In 2010 he retired from the University of North Alabama to write the story of Saturday, a slave on the French side of his ancestors and a participant in the world’s greatest slave rebellion. He joins me from North Alabama.
Three songs that would be on the soundtrack of his life:1st song: “City of New Orleans” by Arlo Guthrie; 2nd song: “Sunday Morning Coming Down” by Johnny Cash; and 3rd song: “When a Man Loves a Woman” by Percy Sledge.
