IN MY OPNION

 

 

 

Black history is American History.  This is a statement that has far reaching meaning. The most obvious is that the history of African Americans in America paralels that of the history of America.  We all know that African Americans were treated as second class citizens and in many cases they did'nt even reach that status.

 

What most of us do not take into account is the role politics and economics played in how black people was treated.

 

African Americans where enslaved mostly due to their value economically. The issues of rascial superiority and hate for black people played a later role, but the overwhelming reason was money.  The political aspect was that when people began to challenge the practice of slavery, it became a political issue. The political party of the time was the Democratic Republican Party. As theissue became heated the party split and became the Republican Party and the Democratic Party. What many black people don't know is that the Republican Party was fighting slavery and the Democratic Party was supporting slavery. This led to the Civil War.  The Democratic Party was the party of the south.

A Note on Black History

<Detroit was the site of the automobile manufacturing for America. But few people know that a black man, Mr Charles Richard Patterson holds the title of being the only African American Automobile manufacturer in the United States.

 

Mr. Patterson was an escape slave from Virginia, he was trained as a blacksmith on the plantation. He learned the trade very well. He later escaped sometime prior to the Civil War, and moved to Greenfield Ohio. He got a job as a black Smith and worked his way into owning the company. He produced a line of horse drawn carriages and wagons. In later years one of Mr. Pattersons sons attended Ohio State University. When returned to his fathers company he convinced Mr. Patterson to go into automobile manufacturing.

 

The company produced a numer of vehicles. But, the depression and the inability to attract investments caused the company to fail.  For more information look up the C.R. Patterson & Son Carriage Company of Greenfield, Ohio.  < New text box >>
