SOUTHAMPTON COUNTY, VA – The scull of Nat Turner has been found in Gary, Indiana. It was donated to former Gary Mayor, Richard G. Hacher at a Fundraising event for “The Civil Right Museum.”

          Mr. Hatcher is reportedly, planning to send, or bring it to Jerusalem (renamed Drewryville), Southampton , VA “to give it a proper burial).”

          Some voiced skepticism that it is in fact the scull of Nat Turner. But Mr. Hatcher says he had it checked out and it is authentic. Nat Turner was the Afrikan Captive held as a chattel slave in 1831. He overcame his fear, and induced others to follow his lead to form an Army, A Black Liberation Army to free Black people.

          After wreaking havoc, panic and fear on whites in Southampton County, he was forced into a retreat near the same plantation, on the land where he was born. After his re-capture, Nat Turner was hung, decapitated and his head sent to be studied in Richmond, VA. But the people taking the head to the scientist, stole it and disappeared.

ALTERNATIVE TO LEGAL REMEDY FOR REPARATIONS LOOM

AS MEMORY OF NAT TURNERS’ EXPROPRIATION EFFORT RETURNS

          On land of his birth, The Nat Turner Library is established in his memory. So it would be appropriate to have it returned to the land of his birth in North America.

          As Black people still hold a glimmer of hope that they can obtain their reparations, the exploits of Nat Turner loom as the alternative to this legal manner in which an abused people receive redress for the “debt owed, to heal” any number of maladies and ill behavior that is linked directly back to the physical torment they suffered in captivity for more than 400 years.

          The maintainers of the Nat Turner Library would like to speak with Mr. Hatcher to see it he’d be willing to donate this body part so it can be properly buried on the land of his birth, by people who hold him in the greatest esteem because of the intentions of his “words, acts and deeds” in 1831.

          Anyone with contact information for Mr. Hatcher is asked to report it to 434-378-2140 or e-mail natturnerlibrary@khabooks.com
