Mary Lee Brady, Ph.D.










Yes, for those who want to know, ... Isaacs offspring were among a lot of Black and White young men of the Jewish faith who served, fought and died in the great battles of "Armageddon" that ended the world of evil as we knew it, ...

... chattel slavery in the new United States that another "Abraham" as we witnessed him was often called by "the least of us" calling out to a higher power for salvation on earth.  While there doubtlessly were many Jews who were major slave traders and fought for the confederate rebellion (such as Judah P. Benjamin, one of the founding scoundrels in the rebellion)

... we must not forget that Jews then or now were no more monolithic than English, Scots, Welch, Irish, and  African-Americans (many of whom did nothing then or now to liberate themselves from their worldly ailments).  And, at least one unknown Jew, perhaps a gifted child in New York State, ... read the Scriptures to our beloved Sojourner Truth who apparently memorized every word heard, and inspired to travels far more applicable to Black preachers than those of self-proclaimed Apostle Paul preaching in the Roman Empire. 

Also our salvation Jews before and after the Civil War that African-Americans knew were not "Fiddler on the Roof" type Yiddish speaking ones popularized in modern American culture about Jewish immigrants.  But, rather like many Mulattoes, Blacks, Irish, and others moving west from original colonial embankments along the James River, ... they struggled to master English as the language of empowerment. 

With few exceptions among Whites, Blacks, and especially Jewish traders like David Isaacs, ... use of the language mattered in communicating with empowered men like Thomas Jefferson.  We dare not characterize them less they were, ... to fit the screen-play of someone like Melvin Van Peebles imagining a stereo-typed existence of human beings in Brooklyn and Harlem.

The real story about anti-Semitism as it exists is that most glorified believers in the Christ of their own making, ... do not know the history and callings of Jesus who was not only born in the faith of Abraham, Jacob and Isaac but also the spirit of goodness to uplift people by many men and means. We do not doubt that Nancy Hemings loved David Isaacs and he loved her.  It most certainly is one of the great unwritten love stories awaiting a novelist about the House of David most preachers have never imagined or certainly not called to preach about.  A few like Jesse Jackson, maybe, can comprehend that God we believe in can do all things known and unknown.

Indirectly, and maybe deliberately the good news of Jesus was spread by many Jews in America like David Isaacs of the House of David, before and after HE was born, ... including Mulatto Hebrews like King Solomon who had a thousand concubines and apparently loved many of them. 

Many Jews born and raised in the growing British Empire and alliances in Germany, ... did not come into America via Ellis Island but rather long before into ports like Annapolis and Williamsburg when the United States was being formed to be what we know today and love under God.  Our fear is that too many African-American writers do not know enough about geography and history to write about energies and matters that inspire, motivate, educate and enlighten new generations about truths that ought not be forgotten.  

The Hemings family experiences may help to offer some insight for writers to digest and write about what might have been, maybe occurred, possibly existed in the mysteries of our faith.  But, the below listed men, many of whom were killed, is no mystery, ... U.S. Government archives document they were born and lived in the great struggle that freed bodies, if not souls. 

As with the sons of Madison Hemings, those able to pass for White joined White regiments while their cousins of color joined the U.S. Colored Troop regiments.  No one knows for certain as to the percentage of African heritage youth were able to pass for White and join regiments reserved for Whites; but indications the number far exceeded assumptions that few were able to do so, and it is equally ludicrous to imagine cousins of color did not know their White cousins passing as such to fight the good fight against an institution disdained and hated by their parents and parents' parents.
