Thank you, Jack. The lives, stories and contributions of so many African American magicians have indeed faded into obscurity. I'm glad we were able to highlight some of the work being done to keep their legacy alive. However, I would be remiss if I didn't highlight two books that have played a significant role in bringing this aspect of magic history to light: Jim Magus' privately published Magical Heroes: The Lives of Great African American Magicians in America (Magus Enterprises; Marrieta, Georgia, 1995) and Jim Haskins and Kathleen Benson's Conjure Times: Black Magicians in America (Walker and Compant, New York, 2001). I would recommend them both to you.
Thank you again for your kind words.
