@Henry the vee eye, eye, eye..... "If you liked the first movie, you won't be disappointed by the second. I learned things about our history that I didn't know with 2 degrees in history...it seems the lib professors and the lib history books forgot to mention the fact that there were more than a few black antebellum plantation owners....and some were black women." If you'd like a good, but short read, I suggest a book titled 'Slavery in Mississippi'. It was a required read when I took Mississippi History at Ole Miss. I think it was required 'cause the professor (for get his name) was the author and, as I was told, was the most noted historian about slavery in not just Mississippi, but many of the southern states. It was an eye opener for me and everyone in the class. Since almost 30 years has passed since I took the class, I'm sure political correctness has driven either him or the book or both from the campus of Ole Miss. Dam shame about the truth of some elements of slavery in America when it doesn't fit the narrative.
