    The Whitening of Black Sam Fraunces - Fraunces Tavern NYC

    in History

    Samuel Fraunces was a Cook for George Washington. Born in Caribbean of black and white parents.  Fraunces owned one of the finest taverns in colonial New York City. When Washington arrived in Philadelphia in 1790 as President, Fraunces came with him as his personal cook and established a business referred to later as the Golden Sun Tavern. Fraunces's Tavern was the social center of the New York City. It was there in 1768 that the Commerce was organized. It was here in 1774 that the Sons of Liberty planned a New York "Tea Party." http://www.kitchensisters.org/hidden_kitchens/herculeshemings_story27.htm
    Sam's daughter Phoebe is credited with saving Washington's life and spying for him. The father and daughter's racial identity is recorded as Negro, colored, Haitian Negro, Mulatto, "fastidious old Negro" and swarthy. Fraunces was immortalized in Philip Freneau's 1786 book of poems as "Black Sam." He was familiarly called by his nick name because of his tan complexion and his tight., curly hair. The Son's of the Revolution (SR), are on a mission to change Sam's Tavern into a Museum, and remake him into a white man.  Several of my ancestors were classified as mistakenly classified as White, because of their light coloring, then reclassified as Mulatto.  Look at the first and last pictures,  posted to this site. The first picture is of  (Black), Sam and the last is my relatives, Aunt Dot, Uncle Chester Ruth, who was identified as, "Colored" another form of Mulatto.

    Audio Book, Black Abolitionists chp 9 Traitors and Loyalists By Benjamin Quarles

    in Education

    Dating from its origin, the Negro press printed the names of black informants,Freedom's Journal listing those of Moses Smith, formerly of Baltimore, and Nathan Gooms of New York, in its issue of November 7, 1828. The mere appearance of these names in the columns of the weekly was a sufficient deterrent to die other informers whose identity the editors threatened to reveal. When Martin R, Delany was editor of The Black Underground  Dr. Martin R. Delaney, founder of the Pittsburgh Mystery in 1842 and later was co-editor of the North Star.



    In August 1858 two runaways were betrayed by John Brodie, who had promised to assist them in returning to Covington, Kentucky, to effect the liberation of relatives. Brodie's treachery nearly cost him his life.  He was seized by a group of Negroes, who proceeded to give him three hundred blows with a paddle, a stroke for each dollar he was supposed to have received from the slave-catchers. Only the presence of the influential Henry Highland Garnet saved Brodie from further punishment. The badly mauled informer delivered himself to the police authorities, to be placed in jail for safe-keeping

    Justice and Injustice is NOT as simple as Black & White

    in Radio

    Black People in the United States of America are protesting the injustice they feel they have been suffering. Many White People don't understand why Black People aren't outraged at the recent killing of two Police Officers. 

    Where is the disconnect? And why are some turning to violence? What are the real underlying problems and what are the solutions? People are dying, neighborhoods are being destroyed and fingers are being pointed. But who is to blame? Those who express anger through violence or those who many Black People say pushed them to violence? Who needs to take responsibility for what?

    On this show, we would really like Black People and White People with courage to call in and let's talk things out... 

    Agreement is never required on our show, but courtesy and respect are, so there is never any reason to be silent. 

    The show airs this Sunday, April 30th, at 7:00 PM, E.S.T. Just click this link or dial (818) 739-8909 to listen by phone, from anywhere...

    Are black women that date outside the race 'coons' and 'Negropeans'?

    in Women

    Often there is discussion and studies regarding black women being single, without a mate. Nobody ever tries to bring forth dialogue regarding ending the crisis. Now African American Women Matters have.


    African American men are very liberal about dating outside his race. And is known to be a very staunch supporter of interracial love. I don't have anything against anyone that date outside their race.


    I don't have a problem with black women that date outside of their race. I've heard that the black community isn't really supportive and somewhat ostracize black women that date out. It has been said that the black community is willing to embrace white women as an in-law but not a white male as an in-law. Is this true? If why?


    Should the black community try to be more inclusive to black women involved in interracial relationships. Should African American women become vocal about ending the single black women crisis? So much 'ratchedness' would end if single black women could find a partner. Let's be civil and discuss this topic. If you think AAWM is wrong to bring this topic to the table explain why.
