While we focus on the big names in Black History, like Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks, we tend to over look the little known figures. It has been recorded that the first act of rebellion against slavery was by a slave named Jemmy.  Jemmy along with 20 slaves marched down a country road, carrying banners proclaiming, “Liberty!” Check out the link to the rotonline.com, for more information on Jemmy and other Little Known Figures in Black History. http://www.rtoonline.com/content/article/Feb03/LittleKnownNamesInBlackHistory020303.asp
