THE NAME

Not a well-known term, Saltwater African, Saltwater Negro and Saltwater (N-Word).  These Africans, taken from the freedom of the sun-kissed lands and enslaved. These enslaved Africans were not indoctrinated into the life of the enslaved and thus they were considered difficult to control and manage - when all they wanted was their "Freedom." They would do everything they could to resist indoctrination into a life of enslavement.

There are still some of us around.
