For Love of Liberty ~ African American Warriors

Just watched the first half of For Love of Liberty: The Story of America’s Black Patriots on WGBH! Since before the birth of the US -- from Crispus Attucks to the 54th Massachusetts Volunteers through the Buffalo Soldiers, Harlem Hellfighters, Tuskegee Airmen, and the contemporary achievements of Colin Powell and colleagues -- African Americans have served "in harms way". The glory of the story is that despite enormous injustices at the time and over the decades, these discriminations and inconsistencies have been largely rooted out and inequities corrected. Liberty triumphant! Check out the intro...

Keep telling that history:

Read the novel, Rescue at Pine Ridge, "RaPR", a great story of black military history...the first generation of Buffalo Soldiers.

How do you keep a people down? ‘Never' let them 'know' their history.

The 7th Cavalry got their butts in a sling again after the Little Big Horn Massacre, fourteen years later, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. If it wasn't for the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers, there would of been a second massacre of the 7th Cavalry.

Read the novel, “Rescue at Pine Ridge”, 5 stars Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the youtube trailer commercial...and visit the website http://www.rescueatpineridge.com

I hope you’ll enjoy the novel. I wrote it from my mini-series movie of the same title, “RaPR” to keep my story alive. Hollywood has had a lot of strikes and doesn't like telling our stories...its been “his-story” of history all along…until now. The movie so far has attached, Bill Duke directing, Hill Harper, Glynn Turman and a host of other major actors in which we are in talks with…see imdb.com at; http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0925633/

When you get a chance, also please visit our Alpha Wolf Production website at; http://www.alphawolfprods.com and see our other productions, like Stagecoach Mary, the first Black Woman to deliver mail for Wells Fargo in Montana, in the 1890's, “spread the word”.

Peace.
