The centerpiece of the incredible story of Blind Tom, the last legal slave in America is well documented, both for his innate musical talent, in spite of his handicap but also for the legal disputes and loopholes that lead to his time as a slave long after it was abolished. Even after all of his success, lining the pockets of his slave-masters, all he had were his clothes and this flute, which is now at auction from Cowan's, likely to sell for $15-25,000 on the 13th of June.
