“Unveiled – The Twenty & Odd” to be released!

On May 18th, 2019 “Unveiled – The Twenty & Odd” will be released! This work will leave the world scratching its head, wondering where the current narrative regarding the first Africans came from.

“Unveiled – The Twenty & Odd” will correct the narrative surrounding their landing, their numbers, and the events which effected their status.
For instance, did you know the first Africans held indentures?
In 1635, Anthony, an African servant was free from his indenture and noted in a later court recording by his former master who stated…    he was free “by a certen wrytinge under my owne hand.”

Anthony wasn’t the only African to have his freedom acknowledged in the court records. From 1635-1640, many of the first Africans are released from indenture and have become headrights. Eventually, they own land and establish farms and trades which many of the Europeans became dependent upon.

Hope you’re ready… “Unveiled – The Twenty & Odd” will bring a new understanding about the first Africans who landed in the English settlement of Virginia 400 years ago. 1619-2019.

Today in History – April 17, 1644

 

The Powhatan King Opechancanough rallied his forces to make a final attempt at routing the English from his people’s land. The attack, launched on April 17, 1644, resulted in the death of at least five-hundred colonist, but, like the attempt made 22 years earlier, did not achieve its objective. The English captured Opechancanough, by then an old and feeble man, was taken to Jamestown, where he was shot in the back by a soldier against orders.
