First Blacks to America
On August 20, 1619 a Dutch ship arrived at Jamestown. On board were 20 captured Africans, who were sold as slaves at Jamestown. The initial Blacks to arrive were considered indentured servantes like many whites in similar circumstances. The Blacks were freed many years later when the terms of their servitude ended.
