The Great African Blondin - Circus Events - CircusTalk
Carlos Trower (1850-1889) escaped slavery in America to become one of the world’s greatest ever high-rope walkers, known as ‘The African Blondin.’ Living in Victorian England for most of his life, he resided in Bristol at 7 Christmas Steps during the 1870s. He performed for thousands at Colston Hall in 1888, walking forwards and backwards, blindfolded and in shackles on a rope 50 feet high reaching 120 feet from the organ to the President’s gallery. His daring performances supported the emancipation of slaves and championed many charities helping those in need throughout his career. He died from a painful illness in 1889. Reading from his forthcoming book High-Rope: A Poem of the African Blondin, Dr. PaulGreen unveils a true never-before-told odyssey of emancipation by an African-American hero as he balanced the narrow way towards a better world. Poetically written and beautifully illustrated, this inspiring account immerses readers in the incredible untold story of a lost legend during defining moments of American and British history. Including rare photographs, Victorian prints, portrait painting by Rachel Hemming Bray, and original illustrations by Trevor Haddrell, RWA, this visual material supports the powerful descriptions of the life and times of an incredible pioneer as he overcame deadly obstacles.
