“The 1st Four: The Story of the Parting Ways Project”

Flyer 1

I have such an honor to announce that Urban International Media Group (UIMG) has the Marketing Management contract to expand some interesting & historical information.  Parting Ways Project ( is embarking on an International Media campaign and business strategy to get the word out that African slaves fought in the Revolutionary War and earned their freedom along with the new country they defended.  Here is an excerpt from the site:

In 1770 over 400,000 African-Americans and several thousand Native Americans were held in slavery in a total population of little over 2.1 million. With the American Revolution drawing ever so close and the talk of freedom all around, African-Americans as well as their fellow enslaved peers were more determined than ever to make freedom a reality for themselves and their children. Plato Turner, Cato Howe, Prince Goodwin and Quamony Quash were no different. Quamony Quash was just fifteen when he enlisted in 1775.

–Cox, Clinton: Come all you Brave Soldiers; Blacks in the Revolutionary War. (NY: Scholastic Press, 1999)
