History of the Cajuns: African-Americans

     One group that came here, but against their will, is the African-American. Slaves had been brought over from Africa decades before the first Acadians arrived.  As time went by, there were a certain number of free blacks.  When blacks and caucasians married, they produced offspring that were known by several names, including mulatto.  While there was some intermarriage with the Acadians, it was a small percentage.
