Florida: Slavery in America: Seminoles and Slaves: Florida's Freedom Seekers

Seminoles and Slaves: Florida's Freedom Seekers
By Jean West


Imagine a tapestry woven with three colors of thread: red, white and black. The tapestry represents Florida's history, a story of three races and their relationships with each other: Native Americans, Europeans, and Africans.

The search for freedom in Florida brought fugitive slaves and the Seminole Indians together 300 years ago. Yet today, the bond between these two groups may be unraveling. Courts and judges are trying to answer the question: "Who is a Seminole?"

Georgia: Springfield - Augusta, Georgia - A Free African-American Community

Georgia: Springfield - Augusta, Georgia - A Free African-American Community | Lowcountry Lesson Plans | Scoop.it

INTRODUCTION: SPRINGFIELD IS A FREE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY
 

Springfield is a free African American community established around the time of the Revolutionary War. The Springfield Community was not an officially recognized subdivision of Augusta, Georgia. Despite this, the neighborhood, roughly bounded by the Savannah River and Jones Street on the north and south and Ninth and Fifteenth streets to the east and west, became one of the few homes to free African Americans who escaped the bonds of slavery prior to the Civil War.
