Author Dr. Myers Lectures from her book "The Invisible Queen" Queen Charlotte America's last Queen, The Queen of Color! http://www.myerspublishing.com/ The Invisible Queen which tells the surprising story of Queen Charlotte, including her African ancestry and her lasting legacy as a supporter of the Abolitionist movement that ended the Atlantic slave trade. Unbeknownst to most, Charlotte North Carolina has a rich history steeped in black history. The Queen City was founded in 1768 and named for Queen Charlotte!
