Dr. Richard Bell, author of STOLEN

After delivering a well-received talk at DC’s Remember the Pearl 2023 commemoration, Port of Harlem (POH) magazine printed an excerpt from Dr. Richard Bell's STOLEN.

The book tells the story of five free boys kidnapped into slavery and their astonishing odyssey home. Both events took place during the Reverse Underground Railroad period.

POH publisher Wayne Young talks with Bell about this period and its affect on Blacks then and now on our next POH Podcast.
