Black History Month: Robert Smalls

Daniel Adewetan

Last night or two, I was reading a story on Robert Smalls. I was quite impressed with his story. I found him out on Twitter. I was reading about his accomplishments and legacy and I loved it. Mr. Smalls was enslaved from the American slave era, gained freedom from slavery, became a ship pilot, sea captain, and a politician. From then he became one of the important figures in African-American history.
