""I am particularly curious of the many ways Africans brought to this continent
    resisted oppression and assimilation. For this reason I was really amazed to
    read the unknown and untaught history of the Gullah wars.  The study of Y. N.
    Kly and yourself represent a major step in the destruction of the myth which
    says that Africans were passive and accepted their slave conditions.  
    Together with the heroic three hundred years of resistance of the Palmaree
    Quilombo in the State of Alagoa, in Brazil, the Gullah Wars are historic facts
    which contribute to enhance the pride of all Africans.  There is more to know
    about the African resistance in the Americas..."
