There’s a post today on the New York Times’ The Local about filming locations for the ’90s kids’ TV show, Ghostwriter, which was supposed to take place in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. But here’s a totally weird tidbit from the writer and producer of the show on Ghostwriter’s past:
“Ghostwriter was a runaway slave during the Civil War,” he said. “He was killed by slave catchers and their dogs as he was teaching other runaway slaves how to read in the woods. His soul was kept in the book and released once Jamal discovered the book.”
