I was looking at one of our local public broadcasting stations , and it had a very interesting program about the denied heritage of african american piratres. White folk did not want to let the slaves know that while they were planting cotton, famous pirates like black beard was living quite lavishly.. heres what I found.. Pirates of the Carribean- Nat. Geographic
I have always been a fan of blackbeard.. however ive never known he was black... surely Jonny Depp on the pirates of the Carribean wasnt black.. surely Shemar Moore wouldve done justice to that role.. :?: indeed.. indeed! :drink:

Great post. I didn't read that Black Beard was black, ( I could have misread the article ) but I didn't know of the contributions black pirates made on the high seas. Thanks for sharing. I will do more research later, this is interesting.

I must admit I never gave any credence to pirates being black, but thanks to this posting I will. So much history has been tainted by conquerors thats why its so important to search out the true history.
