The Chaneysville Incident by David BradleyThe legends say something happened in Chaneysville. The Chaneysville Incident is the powerful story of one mans obsession with discovering what that something was--a quest that takes the brilliant and bitter young black historian John Washington back through the secrets and buried evil of his heritage. Returning home to care for and then bury his fathers closest friend and his own guardian, Old Jack Crawley, he comes upon the scant records of his familys proud and tragic history, which he drives himself to reconstruct and accept. This is the story of Johns relationship with his family, the town, and the woman he loves; and also between the past and the present, between oppression and guilt, hate and violence, love and acceptance.
All hail David Bradley, the standout star of Les Miserables
D avid Bradley wants to meet in Barnsley. This is where he grew up. It is where Kes, the film that changed his life, was made, and where he still lives. He is waiting for me in the middle of the road as I come out of the station, waving exuberantly. He then drives me a few miles south to the village of Tankersley.
