S.C. author pens unusual family history
Christopher Williams, a Greenville writer, has published a large-format illustrated book called "Black Blue Bloods: Legacy of an African-American Plantation Owner." The book is $29.95 and available from online retailers.
Williams spent years researching his family history. " 'Black Blue Bloods' completes my ancestral calling," he writes in the preface. "I've known I was going to write this book for a long time now but I never thought I'd be in for such a big story."
