It is an unprecedented family record that reveals how the painful legacy of slavery continues to endure in America's collective memory and experience. Ball, a descendant of one of the largest slave-owning families in the South, discovered that his ancestors owned 25 plantations, worked by nearly 4,000 slaves. Through meticulous research and by interviewing scattered relatives, Ball contacted some 100,000 African-Americans who are all descendants of Ball slaves. In intimate conversations with them, he garnered information, hard words, and devastating family stories of precisely what it means to be enslaved. He found that the family plantation owners were far from benevolent patriarchs; instead there is a dark history of exploitation, interbreeding, and extreme violence.--From publisher description+-+715633521532412755ocn046685603book20010.21Ball, EdwardThe sweet hell inside : a family historyHistoryBiographyRecounts the lives of the Harleston family of South Carolina, the progeny of a Southern gentleman and his slave who cast off their blemished roots and achieved affluence in part through a surprisingly successful funeral parlor business. Their wealth afforded the Harlestons the comfort of chauffeurs, tailored clothes, and servants whose skin was darker than theirs. It also launched the family into a generation of glory as painters, performers, and photographers in the "high yellow" society of America's colored upper class. The Harlestons' remarkable 100-year journey spans the waning days of Reconstruction, the precious art world of the early 1900s, the back alleys of the Jazz Age, and the dawn of the civil rights movement.--From publisher description+-+K59316331512113ocn745979717book20120.19Ball, EdwardThe inventor and the tycoon : a Gilded Age murder and the birth of moving picturesHistoryBiographyTrials, litigation, etcThe story of Eadweard Muybridge, inventor of stop-motion photography and moving pictures--who was also a murderer--and his relationship with Leland Stanford, the wealthy railroad baron and founder of Stanford University+-+802070038510023ocn087758917book20070.20Ball, EdwardThe genetic strand : exploring a family history through DNABiographyChronicles the author's personal experience with DNA testing and research into his own family, in an anecdotal study that traces his genealogical investigation into his paternal ancestry+-+230117892597011ocn053435234book20040.20Ball, EdwardPeninsula of lies : a true story of mysterious birth and taboo loveBiographyAn investigation into the life of Charleston socialite Dawn Langley Simmons traces her humble birth, friendships with the aristocracy, controversial sex reassignment, and marriage to an African American in the segregated South+-+15108789251401ocn039251618rcrd19980.15Ball, EdwardSlaves in the familyHistoryBiographyPresents the history of the Ball family and the slaves that lived on their plantation in Charleston, South Carolina+-+K676306215874ocn827537962file20130.12Ball, EdwardThe inventor and the tycoon [a Gilded Age murder and the birth of moving pictures]HistoryBiographyTrials, litigation, etcOne hundred and thirty years ago Eadweard Muybridge invented stop-motion photography, anticipating and making possible motion pictures. He was the first to capture time and play it back for an audience, giving birth to visual media and screen entertainments of all kinds. Yet the artist and inventor Muybridge was also a murderer who killed coolly and meticulously, and his trial is one of the early instances of a media sensation. His patron was railroad tycoon (and former California governor) Leland Stanford, whose particular obsession was whether four hooves of a running horse ever left the ground at once. Stanford hired Muybridge and his camera to answer that question. And between them, the murderer and the railroad mogul launched the age of visual media563ocn048497059rcrd20010.12Ball, EdwardThe sweet hell inside a family historyHistoryBiographyPresents the 100-year history of the Harleston family, descendants of a South Carolina gentleman and his slave, from the waning days of Reconstruction to the art world of the early 1900s, down the back alleys of the Jazz Age, and into the dangers of the dawning Civil Rights movement+-+7957555155311ocn067810746book19990.19Ball, EdwardSlaven in de familieDe geschiedenis -vanaf 1698- van een familie van grootgrondbezitters en slavenhouders en hun slaven in het zuiden van de Verenigde Staten81ocn880379903book20130.29Ball, EdwardThe inventor and the tycoon : the murderer Eadweard Muybridge, the entrepreneur Leland Stanford, and the birth of moving picturesHistoryBiographyTrials, litigation, etcThe story of Eadweard Muybridge, inventor of stop-motion photography and moving pictures--who was also a murderer--and his relationship with Leland Stanford, the wealthy railroad baron and founder of Stanford University41ocn807286737book20000.30Ball, EdwardEsclavos en la familiaHistoryBiography41ocn047826981rcrd20000.27StoryLines Southeast31ocn059265046book20040.10Ball, EdwardA true story of mysterious birth and taboo loveBiographyThis is an investigation of a bizarre life that begins in Kent, England with the birth of an illegitimate baby and ends in South Carolina, USA with a sex-change and a scandal.

[He] has turned his probing gaze on the microcosm of the human genome, and not just any human genome - that of his slave-holding ancestors. What is the legacy of such a family history, and can DNA say something about it? In 2000, after a decade in New York City, [the author] bought a house in Charleston, South Carolina, home to his father's family for generations, and furnished it with heirloom pieces from his relatives. In one old desk he was startled to discover a secret drawer, sealed perhaps since the Civil War, in which someone had hidden a trove of family hair, with each lock of hair labeled and dated. The strange find propelled him to investigate: what might DNA science reveal about the people - [his] family members, long dead -- to whom the hair had belonged? Did the hair come from white relatives, as family tradition insisted? How can genetic tests explain personal identity?... [This] is a personal odyssey into DNA and family history. -Dust jacket11ocn806230127rcrd20000.10Ball, EdwardEdward Ball: Slaves in the familyHistoryEdward Ball's National Book Award-Winning narrative chronicles the biographical history of his family and the 4,000 slaves they owned across 20 rice plantations11ocn317574619book19990.31Ball, EdwardDie Plantagen am Cooper River : eine Südstaaten-Dynastie und ihre SklavenHistoryBiographyDie breit angelegte, auf authentischen Zeugnissen basierende Südstaaten-Familiensaga entwirft zugleich ein erschütterndes Bild des amerikanischen Traumas der Sklaverei11ocn063192164book2001Afro American Genealogical and Historical Society (Chicago, Ill.)The Afro-American Genealogical & Historical Society of Chicago, Inc. 19th Annual Family History Conference : family history : my roots and yoursConference proceedings11ocn051946498rcrd19981.00Fresh airHistoryInterviewsRadio program Fresh air hosted by interviewer Terry Gross featuring guests Tony Horwitz and Edward Ball.
