Black Mexican President Ended Slavery!
During the Civil War Slavers fled to and hid blacks in Gavelston, Texas! Vicente Guerrero, Mexico’s first black president Abolished Slavery, Assisted Escaping Blacks and Fought Texas!
Texas President Sam Houston lamented that " two valuable negro boys for which I had paid in cash $2100 previous to my visit to Nashville, ran away last spring to Mexico. Thus you can see I am in bad luck."
Just two and a half months after Mexico abolished slavery, officials were uneasy about the numbers of new European Americans settling within Mexico and they attempted to curb the number of newcomers.
In 1830, Mexico decreed that foreigners could not cross the border without obtaining a passport issued by Mexican agents.Texans did not respect the MEXICAN border in their pursuits of Freed Blacks. In 1855, Captain James Callahan of the Texas Rangers entered Mexico in an attempt to recapture self-emancipated Africans.
Many jazz musicians have decided to make Washington, D.C. their home after traveling over the world performing jazz. This evening, I will interview Herman Burney a bassist, composer and educator who decided to reside in Washington, D.C. after traveling around America and the world performing music. He has performed with many musicians. For instance, he played the bass for 5 years with Freddie Cole and for 4 years with Rene Marie. The list of jazz performers that he has recorded and performed with is extensive. Rufus Reid described Herman as one of the finest bassist on the scene today. Join us as he shares information about his music and we listen to his CD, Offering. Jazz lives at Jazz Notes.
