Re: [GEN-AFRICAN] Black Minqua The Life and Times of Henry Green
From: Anita Wills <>

-- Black Minqua The Life and Times of Henry Green, is Non-Fiction and
based on the life of Henry Green. The setting is in Pre-Civil War
Southeastern Pennsylvania. Henry Green is a descendant of
Natives/blacks/whites who settled in the Mountains surrounding Lancaster
County Pennsylvania. On first contact Europeans referred to the Natives as
Minqua or Mingo, (People of the Muddy Water). They were the Natives who
lived near the Susquehanna River. Some were dark (Black) and others light
(White), thus they became Black or White Minqua. On 9/11/1851, Henry
becomes involved in an incident in which a white slave owner is killed, and
his life changed forever. He stood trial along with over thirty members of
his friends and family from the community. The event, known as "The
Christiana Resistance" was touted as a precursor to the Civil War by
Frederick Douglas. The book is a study on a period in American History in
which People of Color were afforded little or no rights, even in the North.
In this book Henry Green takes Center Stage as a man who, although free,
assisted escaping slaves. Just as his father before him Henry stood out and
left a historic footprint which we follow throughout this work.
