Maroons As Movement Role Models

The contemporary Black struggle should draw on the experience and example of maroons, the escaped slaves that formed communities of freedom beyond the reach of the slave masters, said Willie Jamaal Wright, a professor of Geography and Africana Studies at Rutgers University. Wright wrote a recent article on “The Morphology of Marronage.” Maroon communities “served as models of cooperative economics, of cooperative living,” and “a model of sacrifice” that is needed today, said Wright.
