In the article The Forgotten Experience, Gary Nash discusses the adventures in which the blacks and reds fought for the natural rights. Thomas Peters and Thayendanegea started their own revolutions to prove to the white people that they were just as equal and deserved the same treatment and natural rights despite their race.
Thomas Peters, only being a slave, successfully accomplished his plan for freedom along with other ex-slaves and refugees from London who desperately wanted freedom from the cruel treatment from their masters and the British. To put life to this plan, he first had to escape many times from his masters and the plantations that he was enslaved in.

The white Nova Scotia’s were just as unwilling to share their land as the American’s were. Eventually they burned and attacked their villages. Fed up with everything, Peters demanded to put the case of black Nova Scotians before the British Government. He met with Granville Sharp, Thomas Clarkson and William Wilburforce to establishing a colony in Africa for ex-slaves to live. Their plan was fulfilled and thousands of blacks were sailed over to the colony in which they called Sierra Leone. Peter’s had earned this place in history, for he did what
