Meet local author Dr. Kerri Moseley-Hobbs, writer of the historical novel More than a Fraction, based on a true story.
Thomas and Othello Fraction are brothers and best friends, descendants of an African nobleman whose tribal scars looked like tiger stripes. But here they were in America, considered three-fifths a person, and fighting two battles: one for the Nation and one for themselves.
Learn how the Fraction family came to America, contributed to the Civil War, survived murder attempts on their lives, and eventually settled outside of Blacksburg, Virginia as southern refugees.
