Blackbeard Pirate Enemy Number One

Engel, with an infectious enthusiasm and radiant wit, is celebrated for creating imaginative and delightful presentations, providing new insights into the backgrounds, lives, and accomplishments of many of the great masters of literature, culture, and fine arts.

Originally from Indianapolis, Indiana, Dr. Engel now lives in Raleigh, where he has taught at the University of North Carolina, North Carolina State University, and Duke University.

Although pirates have fascinated the world for centuries, no pirate has ever achieved the notoriety of Blackbeard. Dr. Engel’s program sifts facts from fiction in order to reveal a man far more complex and fascinating than the rather cardboard villain of his current, inaccurate reputation.
