We are rarely taught of instances where our ancestors fought back against the harsh treatment of white supremacy unless it was in the form of REFORM. However, most of our ancestors fought for revolutionary change, meaning TRUE LIBERATION. We wanted our own sovereignty because it was completely unnatural for one race to rule over another.
Learn how our brave ancestors in Brazil operated one of the largest maroon communities. This is one of the greatest examples of strong Africans coming together to live under their own sovereignty/government/rulership to a great extent better than the Portuguese.
