DR. RUNOKO RASHIDI, CARL NELSON, BLACK SEMINOLE “MASCOGOS” AND FORT NEGRO’S FIXICO
HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH,
Today is August 10th, 2017, I’m writing this Blog from Southern California, the sun is shining brightly and there is a wonderful evening breeze coming off of the Pacific Ocean. Minutes ago, I had the distinct privilege of speaking on the number one Black Talk Show for “CONSCIOUS” African-Americans (in my opinion). That show is the Carl Nelson Show heard on WOLDC 1450 AM radio , coming out of Washington, D.C..
The guest for today’s show was Dr. Runoko Rashidi, one of our most accomplished Scholars in Ancient African History and Anthropology. Below is a transcript of my call into the show:
“Greetings Brother Carl and Dr. Runoko Rashidi. It is truly an honor , Sir. Thank you for all that you do for us with your trips. Concerning your trip to Matanzas , Cuba. Both Matanzas and Guanabacoa, Cuba (which is a municipality of Havana) have been documented as sites where Black Seminoles migrated to, from Spanish , Florida. Many of them came from the Settler Group around Fort Negro.
It’s interesting that this region still produces Black Seminole Descendant Freedom Fighters, per your Angola information. Dr. Runoko had earlier, in his interview mentioned that he visited the Matanzas area and this area is where many of Cuba’s Freedom Fighters came from who went to fight South African White Supremacy Troops in Angola).
I have several Black Seminole Cousins in Mexico, and they are known as :”Los Mascogos”. They currently live in Nacimiento de Los Negros, en Coahiula, Mexico”. I hung up and awaited his answer off the air.
Dr. Runoko Rashidi was very excited about the Mascogos of Mexico who live in la Ciudad de Nacimiento de los Negros. He touched on the Black Seminole History and said that he intended on taking his next year’s Mexican Tour group to meet the Mascogos of Nacimiento.
The photo above was taken on October 22nd, 2016, I am speaking at the podium during the 200th Anniversary commemoration of the Battle and Massacre of Fort Negro. I am seen with chiefs and representatives of the U.S Forest Service, the Muskogee Creek, Seminole and Choctaw Indian Nations plus other participants and audience members.
