@WorldProfessor @UrbanHistoryA @thecrisismag @Georgetown @C19Americanists @DrIbram We need an expansion of @TyehimbaJess piece by looking at intersections between Blacks and Indigenous communities.

@WorldProfessor @UrbanHistoryA @thecrisismag @Georgetown @C19Americanists @DrIbram @TyehimbaJess We need to keep in mind the Cherokee, partly in hopes of staving off removal, legalized slavery in their constitution. There Perdue explores this in Slavery and the Evolution of Cherokee Society #1619syllabus books.google.com/books/about/Sl…
