    Although not enough has been said about slave and maroon resistance against slavery in US, even less has been stated how legally recognized free blacks who were in privileged positions compared slaves and maroons with more to lose aided not only in non-violent forms of activism such as in the abolitionist movement but also going as far as to violently take up arms in the collective battle of Afr'Am in this nation to physically combat slavery, white terrorism, and WS in general.

    Here are some examples of free blacks SUCCESSFULLY taking up arms against whites in the fight against oppression during the slavery era.
