About the Author:

John H. Jordan is the author of Black Americans 17th Century to 21st Century. This is his first book. John feels that everyone should know the history of black Americans. The struggles and the successes. John H. Jordan was born on February 17, 1944, on a farm about five miles south of the town of Leland, Mississippi (Delta). He was raised by his grandfather. His grandfather was a sharecropper. Many former slaves who remained in the South worked under the sharecropping system, where they worked for the landowners on small plots of land. Unfortunately, this system was easily corrupted by landowners who charged exorbitant amounts for monies loaned to the sharecroppers. Many sharecroppers became caught in a cycle of debt they could never pay back. As a black American in Mississippi, John was treated as though he had no rights. When he went into a store, there were separate water fountains; one had a sign for whites and another for colored. He was not allowed to use the toilet at a store, restaurant, or service station. Most restaurants would not serve him, or if they did, he had to go to a window outside. In 1968, John enlisted in the US Marine Corp. He served four years active duty, and two years in the reserves.
