alt: okay Selma wrote that down... thanks for the heads-up

VeenGA: HistoryBuff I did not see 3rd

alt: I'll try and google the article

HistoryBuff: I didn't either I was just greeting him in absentia. Have you all ever heard of an ex-slave badge or association?

Selma: Not sure what you mean Historybuff? There were Ex Slave Associations which formed trying to get reparations..

HistoryBuff: Yes, Selma that's it. I just encountered this information today on a humble while searching for Dr. Mary Frances Berry's history publications.

Selma: Yes, her book My Face is Black its True..is very good

alt: the former Randolph Slave group formed an association for their descendants HistoryBuff... for trying to get the land back that was stolen from them in Ohio. only slave assoc. I've heard of.

Selma: Walter Hill (now deceased) who was at the National Archives did a presentation in the 1990's at an AAHGS Conference I tried to see if I could locate some organizations here in VA..but couldn't..then about 5 or 6 years ago

HistoryBuff: I plan to read it. Yes I just printed out his article. I encountered this link: http://tinyurl.com/3wqlyx4

Selma: the Library of VA found a Charter for one group that was in Isle of Wight VA..named the officers.. There were groups all over..had different names..some ended up as scams I posted somewhere on Afrigeneas

alt: and it was said our folks were 'docile' ain't true they fought long and hard for their 'props' from their/our early history in this country.

Selma: There have been at least 2 articles in Prologue about these groups..one was done by Walter Hill many years ago..and one more recently They started in the late 1800's There are suppose to be letters at the National Archives written by folks who joined these groups..and were looking for their money

alt: I guess the fight for reparations, in some form, ain't too new.

HistoryBuff: You are referring to the National Ex-Slave Mutual Relief Bounty and Pension Association of the U.S.A.?

Selma: Yes

HistoryBuff: Okay. I knew there were other Relief Associations for Slave refugees, contraband and freedman. Didn't know about reparations prior to the Marcus Garvey movement. Selma, I did see the Walter Hill article printed in the Negro History Bulletin(1996)

Selma: I am pretty sure that he did one for Prologue..the more recent one was done by a woman

HistoryBuff: I guess I was linked to it in reference to compensation for former slaves of Confederate territory.

Selma: Read Dr. Berry's book will give you the details and good overview of the movement.

HistoryBuff: Sounds good Selma. I'm going to have to step away. If I don't return, everyone have a great day.
