Ep. 1063 Nat Turner's Rebellion: Why a Historical Novel Was So Controversial

The Tom Woods Show
Released on Dec 19, 2017

Gene Epstein returns on the 50th anniversary of William Styron's historical novel The Confessions of Nat Turner, the slave who led a famous revolt in Virginia. Since Styron was a white southerner who wrote a Nat Turner novel in the first person, you can imagine the reception he got in certain quarters. The whole episode tells us a great deal about American society and intellectual life.
