Roz Johnson, I totally agree with you that black and Indian unions should not be viewed as happening only within the confines of slavery. The story goes way back to the Jamestown colony when the first Africans arrived there in 1619. Both Indians and blacks had to finally face the same English racist attitudes, and unions between the two peoples began even before black slavery was institutionalized. It is part of American history, and Tiya Miles tells just one part of the much bigger story.
