Description

Gail Buckley is a best-selling author and historian.

Her first book, The Hornes: An American Family, is an inspired history of Buckley’s mother, musical legend Lena Horne, and her family. Buckley traces the Hornes’ roots from the post-Civil War Reconstruction era up to the present day, writing with great insight about a family with ties to every major event in the United States during the past 150 years.

Buckley is a chronicler of “undiscovered American history – the people and events that are left out of the textbooks.” Buckley’s new book, The Black Calhouns (released February 2016), follows her family history from the Civil War to Civil Rights, starting with her great-great grandfather Moses Calhoun, a slave-turned-businessman.
