Skip Finley with Michael Schulder: Whaling Captains of Color

Think you know the history of whaling? You don’t—unless you’ve read Skip Finley’s "Whaling Captains of Color: America’s First Meritocracy." Finley, a former broadcasting executive who was responsible for more than 50 US radio stations, uncovers the incredible stories of the lives of over 50 Black whaling captains to create a portrait of what life was like for these men on the high seas. Michael Schulder, of Wavemaker Conversations, is on hand to get to the heart of Finley’s important life and work.
