In my efforts as a screenwriter to bring back the people erased/marginalized from history, meet Bass Reeves. He was born into slavery and was a fugitive slave until 1865. Learn more about Bass and his legacy in the video. With the turmoil in the US among a pandemic, Reeve's legacy is crucial for us to understand.
While a fugitive slave, he spent time with the Cherokee and other nations and learned their languages, customs and their landscapes. Because of his knowledge, he was the perfect candidate for a US Deputy Marshall.The Lone Ranger is said to emulate Bass but the character was always a white man. #hbo #Watchmen had Reeves as part of the #storyline as the show #educated us about #slavery and the continued treatment of #AfricanAmericans in the #US .
