A Thanksgiving Ode to John Horse and the Black Seminoles

It is two days past T’giving and I always post something historical…I apologize that missed this for the day……

I know I try to force feed history to my readers….but with good reason…..we should never forget our heritage and culture……whether good or bad…..

John Horse and the Black Seminoles secured the first Emancipation Proclamation years before Lincoln’s by forcing the white establishment in Florida to compromise. Their story is unfortunately overlooked, but important for the future of Black and Brown people across the Americas.

The two races, the Negro and the Indian, are rapidly approximating; they are identified in interests and feelings….Should the Indians remain in this territory, the Negroes among them will form a rallying point for runaway Negroes from the adjacent states; and should they remove, the fastnesses of the country would be immediately occupied by negroes. — US General Thomas S. Jesup
