      What a thrilling display of "Pinback Power" you own!!!
      Crispus Attucks was black I believe started out a runaway slave.

      PCC From what I found mostly on Wikipedia there is some debate about that they say he was probably a Native American slave OR freeman, merchant seaman and dockworker of Wampanoag and African descent. Circumstantial evidence suggests his father may have been Prince Yonger, an African-born slave and his mother, Nanny Peterattucks, a Natick Native American
      His main claim to fame (but what a way to get it) is he was the first person killed in the Boston massacre, in Boston, Massachusetts, and is widely considered to be the first American killed in the American Revolution. Wikipedia
      There is a few shown with an interesting history
      Thanks for the nice comment and Love Lois
