I'm from Jamaica. I learned a lot about my family history growing up there. I found out that my great, great grandfather was a slave who worked so hard that he bought his freedom from slavery... then sold himself back into slavery for a profit. He was the first Negro to refinance himself. He did it nine times, till he owned the plantation and himself. Then he wrote a book called, How to Flip Your Freedom.
