185. Black Indians and Black Cowboys in the Old West
awesome books and required reading imho


http://www.williamlkatz.com/Books /

I worked with AIM and a tribe of "black Indians" and the books here blew my mind.

The first permanent colony in the continental US was a group of about Africans brought by the Portuguese in 1535 (almost 100 years before jamestown and Plimouth Rock) near the Peedee River in North/South Carolina (Cherokee territory more or less).

Thet immediately ran away and the native people took them in.

By the time Plimout plantation was established and Jamestown there were already several generations of "Black Indians" living here before any white men (except maybe Norsemen who got here around 990 AD) for almost 100 years.

Great unknown history
