Barnstorming, A Negro Baseball Story by Jonathan Carroll
With Black Lives Matter in the news daily, Barnstorming, although set in the 1940s-50s, will resonate with people today.
Although Jonathan Carroll calls Cambridge, Massachusetts home, his family town is Eatonville, Florida, the first "all free" legally incorporated black town in the United States of America. Being the great grandson of one of its first mayors, Columbus H. Crooms (14-year tenure as mayor), you can imagine that Jonathan has spent a great deal of time there throughout his life.
Jonathan has traveled the world, and in his free time, it is spent scuba diving some of the world's most beautiful dive sites. His ability for storytelling has been passed down to him by his elders, as is the tradition of many African-American families.
