As a prelude to the Blackbeard Pirate Festival on June 2&3, historian and documentary filmmaker Kevin Duffus, author of The Last Days of Black Beard the Pirate: Within Every Legend Lies a Grain of Truth presents a special illustrated lecture to separate fact from fiction related to this iconic figure. What happened during Black Beard’s last days that precipitated his demise? Who, truly, was Edward Teach, aka Black Beard, and from whence did he come? What was his true name? And what happened to his treasure?
