Truevine, Virginia, 1899. Captured into the circus, George and Willie Muse performed for royalty at Buckingham Palace and headlined over a dozen sold-out shows at New York's Madison Square Garden. They were global superstars in a pre-broadcast era. But the very root of their success was in the color of their skin and in the outrageous caricatures they were forced to assume. Back home, their mother never accepted that they were âgoneâ and spent twenty-eight years trying to get them back. Through hundreds of interviews and decades of research, Beth Macy explores a central and difficult question: Were the brothers better off on the world stage or in poverty at home?
