Carbone Joins GoLocal LIVE to Discuss His New Book About the Impact of Brown & Sharpe on RI
Wednesday, June 21, 2017
He discussed the multi-year effort and the tens of thousands of documents he and his sister reviewed in researching the book.
Ray Rickman of Stages of Freedom calls Carbone’s book, “best local history book in the last 20 years.”
He says, “I loved that he writes about race and class in his book. Blacks being excluded from the factory. A factory owned by White folks with Black servants. Shameful behavior and one of the many reasons Black folks are still doing so poorly. Fathers/Mothers unable to make a living and build a financial base to build on. I am positive he (Carbone) will win an award or two for this book.”
