When Melbourne Garber came to Billings for the High Plains Book Awards we did a lot of talking. I loved hearing about life in Sierra Leone, his historical research, and, of course, his personal stories. I would say we spent the better part of three days in conversation. It was heavenly.

Now I can share a little bit of that experience with you. Corby Skinner and Anna Paige, the hosts of Resounds: Arts and Culture on the High Plains, invited us into the Yellowstone Public Radio studio to talk about Sierra Leone, history, and, of course, An African in Imperial London: The Indomitable Life of A.B.C.

“It’s impossible not to catch the enthusiasm for historical research that Danell and Mel have,” Anna posted ,”and meeting someone connected to a figure nearly lost to history, well, it’s just damn exciting.”
