Mr Marion “OKIE” Smith (RIP) Shares The History Of 1619

posted in: Blog 9

Help me make these facts Mr Smith told me known around the world. His kind heart and his love for our ancestral legacy needs to be remembered. He stood up for us, now let’s stand up for him. In this video Mr Smith explains the history and takes me to the hallowed ground where it is believed some of the first “20 and odd Africans” arriving in 1619 near Historical Jamestown are actually buried. This land has not been designated as a historical site. Mr Smith tried for years to convince the powers that be to preserve the land and the history of this burial site and the 100 acres that the slaves created as a sustainable food source for the English Settlers as a historical site so that future generations could visit and have the opportunity to learn about their history and pay their respects to their ancestors who came before them. Although this information is common knowledge among the local historians, the property is not owned by any Historical Society or NPS nor are there any plans to preserve this land or history for future generations. Watch and share this video it is eye opening! You can also visit my website for additional information http://www.calvinearl.com

    Thanks for the very valuable information about America and the truth about slavery of the African-American which has been kept out of books on American history. Seemingly to me the NAACP and PUSH (Rev.Jessie Jackson) organizations would b
    e able to help you get the burial ground as a permanent historical site. To the government powers that be please keep your promised “40 acres and a mule” and tell the world the truth about my ancestors and how they were in humanly used to build America and it’s greatness.
