Blind Tom was the stage name of Thomas Greene Wiggins, born into slavery in 1849. This is the final volume in a trilogy by Southall (emeritus, African-American studies, U. of Minnesota) relating the exploitation of this black musical prodigy as some 1908 obituaries noted, and countering the downgrading of his talent due to prejudice. Includes a 32-page bibliography and period illustrations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
