Teaching Healthy Cultural Heritage by Correcting False American Slave Liberation Narratives

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The shame of slavery was imposed with false narratives created by supporters of slavery. It is argued here that the lives of youth can be improved by understanding the truth about their African American heritage and learning to reject false narratives.
It is believed that slaves referred to themselves as niggers out of a lack of self-respect. It is revealed here that the word nigger comes from niger the Latin word for black. The slaves referred to themselves as niggers in the words proper use and form without malice or condemnation.
The contemporary perspective of slave liberation is “President Lincoln freed the slaves” giving no credit to the slaves “Still away to Jesus invisible institution.” and the valor of the United States Colored Troops. By law, black prayer meeting participants were flogged. The persecution of these prayer meetings inspired the abolitionist as well as inspiring “the battle hymn of the republic.”
The false narrative; “slaves won’t strike a blow for their freedom.” was crushed by the Louisiana Native Guard at the Battle of Port Hudson. Led by black officers, they charged the fort five times losing two thirds of their men, the largest regimental battle losses. Their fighting style was proven to be effective at destroying Richmond’s defenses which bolstered President Lincoln’s failing re-election campaign. They also played a decisive role defeating Hood’s Army at the Battle of Nashville. There were more than 10,000 USCT’s at Appomattox Court House, significantly more than the false narrative count of 2000 black men.
