BLACK INDIANS will callenge your view of US Histo
This book is a must for all who seek to really know a true history of this country. What an important story this is to tell. I find myself SEEING my reality changed. I see how the view I had of the story of slavery and African American history in the US was so simplistic. Here is told facets of that history that will leave you stunned about the omissions of the history learned in school. This book will further your understanding the history of non white peoples of this land. Included are slave rebellions, slaves escaping to freedom in huge #s to their Indian friends, Native American slaveholders, the fear in the colonies of African/Indian uprisings and individuals' histories who Black heritage is buried in favor of a white dominated story. This is a must for all who want to fully understand the history of the US and an invaluable story showing friendship, shared histories and shared heritage of African Americans and Native peoples. I am going to buy lots of copies of this book and give it to family and friends.
