Negroes from Africa have been in America since 1620 when twenty Africans were sold to the white settlement of Jamestown, Virginia. Since that date, Negros have made a contribution to American history through their blood and sweat, their songs, and their cultural heritage. Yet, a peculiar institution of slavery arose on American soil, and black men and women were subjected to a subservient, second-class status.
