Ride Natty Ride

On this day in 1831, Nat Turner was hung in Jerusalem, Virginia. A minister to his people, Turner was one of the first in the long line of Black theologians who would and continue to demand that every woman and man recognize their own role in building paradise here on Earth. After having escaped to freedom, Turner proved himself a true prophet in the tradition of Moses and returned to Southampton Country, Virginia determined to set his people free by any means necessary. His insurrection began on August 21 and would result in the deaths of some 60 whites within 3 days. Following the revolt, Turner evaded capture until late October and expressed no remorse for this righteous deeds.

¡Nat Turner, presente!
