Film Screening: “Black Border Warriors: The Seminole Negro Indian Scouts” will have its U.S. premiere in the Twin Cities at Obsidian Arts. Filmmaker Present


The award-winning documentary “Black Border Warriors: The Seminole Negro Indian Scouts” will have its U.S. premiere in the Twin Cities in October and November.


->Friday October 12, 2018<-


->7:00 p.m.<-


->Obsidian Arts / TEKBox Theater (2nd Floor)<-


->Free<- 

The film, awarded Best Documentary at the 2018 Black International Cinema Festival in Berlin, tells the epic story of a unique group of African-Americans, the Black Seminole. It follows their flight from slavery in the early 1800’s from plantations in Georgia and South Carolina to Spanish Florida, where they fought with the Seminole tribe against the U.S. in the Seminole Wars.

They were subsequently forced to march west to the Indian Territory (Oklahoma); spent a 20-year exodus in Mexico, eventually recruited to Texas by the U.S. Army where they formed an elite commando unit—the Seminole Negro Indian Scouts—during the Indian Wars in 1870s and ‘80s. The “Scouts” were uncanny trackers, horsemen, and soldiers who never lost a man in battle, while being the recipients of four Medals of Honor (America’s highest military honor).

“For many decades through warfare, diplomacy, and exodus, under their charismatic leader John Horse, the Black Seminole maintained their freedom,” says filmmaker, Joseph P. Hill.

“Black Border Warriors: The Seminole Negro Indian Scouts,” “Black Border Warriors: It can also be viewed in Saint Paul on Thursday, November 1, 6 pm at the Rondo Library, 461 Dale St. N.

Hope to see you there,

Congress passed two pieces of legislation that would make it easier for pharmacists to tell patients about their payment options at the pharmacy counter.
Both bills ban the use of gag clauses - a binding agreement that prohibits a pharmacist from telling patients about their payment options – specifically, whether patients could save money by paying cash for their medication instead of using health insurance. Gag clauses prevent patients from making the cheaper choice of paying out of pocket rather than a higher copayment. 
The Arthritis Foundation has led the charge by building support in Congress and among other patient and provider organizations about the importance of this legislation. Thanks to Arthritis Foundation Advocates and Ambassadors calling on their members of Congress to vote in favor of the legislation, the bills moved quickly through the legislative process. Read about the impact of this legislation and what’s next in our blog post.
