The Last Days of Black Beard the Pirate

Record #:
Widely considered the most feared of pirates during the Golden Age of Piracy (1660s to 1720s), Black Beard’s supposed adventures and behavior have thrilled people, but many of the stories are exaggerated or wrong. Kevin Duffus, a journalist in Raleigh, researched and published a book that examines and sets straight the legends associated with Black Beard. Duffus reveals details of Black Beard’s life in North Carolina, and what actually happened during his final six months as a pirate.
