Henry Stone Interviewed in A People’s History of Overtown, New Book by Jacob Katel
Henry Stone would be proud that an interview he gave Jake Katel in 2011 for A People’s History of Overtown is a critical hit in NYC.
Not only is the book available in paperback and e-book; It has global distribution through the biggest retailer on Earth. And a great writer named Monica Uszerowicz has written an article about it for a widely read NYC arts blog.
You gotta read this article and check out this book for an amazing interview where Henry Stone talks about Overtown in The Jukebox Era.
