They may think we have no part in history besides slavery. These are some facts that are not taught and/or will never be taught in school. It’s best to step out of our comfort zone and explore the wonderful world wide web.

A town crier is defined as “an officer of the court who makes public announcements and royal proclamations.” As early as the 15th and 16th century, the town crier was the main news source of the townspeople.
One of the first official American Town Criers was Peter Logan, a black slave who purchased his family’s freedom in the late 18th century. The former slave and ship carpenter set up a home for his family and became a respected member of society as Town Crier.
