The early history of this country is informed by the presence of indigenous natives, African slaves and European colonizers. The first man killed by the British in the American Revolution, Crispus Attucks, was a descendant of all three. Since colonial times, African Americans and American Indians have interacted and intermarried. Hosts Ras Kdee and Janeen Antoine explore this multiiracial history and experience in interviews with SFSU professor and author Andrew Jolivette on his upcoming book on Black Indians, and singer /songwriter Tchiya Amet, whose musical talents are illustrated in pieces from her cd titled Black Turtle Island. Plus the Bay Area Indian Calendar.
