About the Author

Sculptor, painter, novelist, and poet Barbara Chase-Riboud has explored and illuminated the secrets of African-American history with her acclaimed, controversial novels, including Sally Hemings and The President's Daughter. With Hottentot Venus, she turns her attention to the true story of Sarah Baartman, a South African herdswoman shown off as a ¿scientific curiosity¿ in the capitals of 19th-century Europe.
