Dr Richard ‘Dicky` van der Ross has done it again. After bringing out his introductory volume in 2005 on Cape Slavery Heritage entitled ˜Up from Slavery`, he has brought out a new book entitled ‘The Black Countess`. Here Dr van der Ross takes up the challenge from the brief summary of a story of Martha Solomons provided in the first volume. Martha Solomons, born to a slave mother, became Lady Grey, the Countess of Stamford, and the benefactor that made it possible to establish the Battswood Training College for teachers, who were descendents of slaves. Dr van der Ross was once the principal of Battswood. This book is the in-depth story of the life and times and genealogy of Martha and Harry Grey.
