Heroism of the
American Negrro
By John Mills
'"'M American sons of Ham, the
Hemercan or the American Ne
gro has always been loyal to his
-ountry In time of peace and in
t.'mo of war. He has played a con
‘ s"iruous part in a'l of the great
’■•'tiles of his native land.
The valor of the Negro was first
brought to the attention of the
world in what is known as the
Boston Massacre, which occurred on
Kings street in Boston, Mass., Mar.
5. 1770. Captain Preston, with the
king’s soldiers, appeared on K ngs
street to enforce a decree if the
British Parliament. The ap~ ar
ai’ee cf the soldiers infuriated the
citizens and a mob, led by Cripua
Attu^ks. a runaway Negro slave,
was fired upon by the soldiers. At
tacks was the first one killed; thus,
he, i' Negro, being the first mar
tyr for American Independence. A
mnnument was erected in Boston
in memory of the Patriots who fell
with the following epitaph com
emerahing the first martyrs for
American Independence;
“Long as in freedom’s cause
the wise contend,
, Dear to your country shall your
fame extend
While to the world the lettered
stone shall tell
Where Caldwell, ,Atlucks, Gray
and Maverick fell.”
At! Bunker Hill, we see Peter
Salem, and ex-slave, fighting side
by side with white soldiers, and
when Major Pitcairn mounted the
redoubt and shouted, “The day is
ours,” the gallant Salem poured the
contents of his gun into the Major’3
body- Salem was presented to
George Washington as having been
the hero who performed that feat.
At the storming of Fort Griswold,
Major Montgomery was lifted upon
the walls f the fort by his men,
and called upon the Americans to
surrender; the answer was given
by John Freeman, a Negro soldier,
who pinned the Major dead to the
earth. *
Janies Freeman, a Negro Bridge
water, participated in the erection
of the fortifications on Dorchester
Heights, under the commarfd of
General Washington which the
next morning so surprised <le
Thus we- get a few glimpses of
the heroic efforts of Negroes in
those early days of white American
oppression, helping to get Ameri
can Independence- The Negro work
ed so hard and fought so valiantly
that; it attracted the attention of
the British to such tan extent that
Lord Dunsmore issued a proclania
staiing that since the colonists were
so eager po abolish a fanciful slav
ery in a dependence on Great Bri
tain, h« would try to see how they ■
liked the abolition of real slavery
by setting free all of their Negroes.
It must not. be forgotten that Ne
gro slavery flourished in the col
onies at that time, and this threat
meant to the colonists from tiheir
v' point a dire calamity.
Lord Dun«more, who was in Vir
ginia, promised freedom to all the
slaves would come on his side; this
invitation was accepted to such an
extent, that the colonists tried their
best to stop the ‘alarming desertion
of the Negroes, they detached a
strong force to check Dunsmore in
his course, but the Americans were
checked at “reat Bridge,” the brid
ge over the Elizabeth river, was
made impossible; some of the works
were defended by Negroes; thus
showng that the oppressed will
turn against the oppressor if giv
en a good opportunity
The next heroic efforts of Ne
groes in fighting for this country
was at Lake Erie in the W'ar of
1812. The cause of this war was
May Oust Professor
For Dining With Ford
Charlotte, N C-, Nov. 7 (C)—
The University of North Carolina
was asked on Wednesday to dis
charge prof. E E Ericson, who is
said to have attended a dinner for
James W Ford, Communist can
didate for vice president of the Un
ited S ates recently. The plea was
made by Dr. Roy W McKnight,
president of the Mecklenburg chap
ter of the U. cf N C. Alumni Ass’n,
who said after being informed that
Prof. Ericson had been present
with other white persons at a din
ner In Ford’s hotel suite after he
had heard Ford make a speech in
public: “I believe a university pro
fessor should enjoy the right of
freedom of speech and liberality of
thought As a matter of fact, it is
his duty to do so, but when a facul
ty member’s conduct and philoso
phy of life become so opposed to
' merienn traditions, especially to
southern traditions, as to be offen
sive to the sensibilities of the thou
•tnds of alumni and to the tax
payers of the state then it is time
for the university adminltration to
start a general house cleaning- I
can see no place n the faculty of
the University of North Carolina
for such an Individual, nor can I
understand why the administration
permits and apparently condones
such offenses against the conven
'ions of the people of the state and
the thousands of alumni of the old
est state university in America ”
“Porgy and Bess”
Songs Heard in N. C.
Winston Salem, N- C-, Nov. 7
(C)—‘‘Strawberry Woman” and
“Prayer for Bess,” two songs from
the opera, “Porgy and Bess,” were
heard at the Winston Salem Tea
chers college recently when the
Eva Jessye choir appeared in re
cital- Tho Bongs were sung by Helen
Dowdy, dramatic soprano, a prin
cipal in “Porgy and Bess” when it
was on Broadway, and also had a
part in the opera, “Four Saints” in
through the Negro when the crew
of the British ship Leonard took
Ware, Martin and Strcken from
the Chcsiipeak and pressed them in
their own service. These Negroes
were then recognized as citizens
of the United States, and this act of i
tho British was sounded as the key
note and rallying cry of the war.
Tho battles on Lake Erie are,
the most memorable n'aval battles1
■ver fought with the British- It was!
n this war that America showed
ber naval supremacy- The crews »n
:ho ships at Lake Erie were partly,
na'le up with Negroes, there was
lot a vessel whose crew in part was
no-tj made up of Negroes. In this
war, the Negro gave some valu
ible service to his country, and on
he 18th day of December, 1814,
when General Jackson review the
Drlcans, he eulogized the Negro for
troops under bis command at New
bis bravery.
