African and Native American Relations in the South
The first encounters between Africans and the Native §people on the North American continent occurred 250 §years before the establisment of the United States. §Both groups would suffer terribly throughout the §European conquests and the ensuing American quest §for "Manifest Destiny". Through a comprehensive §review of historical events, selected literature, §and sociological theories, this book explores the §relations between Blacks and American Indians - §their shared yet separate histories of subjugation §and oppression. It traces the westward movement of §Whites, Blacks, and Native Americans with focus on §the ever-increasing mixing of blood that would come §to characterize much of the Oklahoma Territory §population. For those interested in the dark side §of American history -- the stories not told in §standard textbooks -- this book offers a strong §foundation for reflection and inquiry.
