              Black Blue Bloods is a true story about an African American family freed from slavery in the 1800's who later went on to own a 700 acre plantation in South Carolina. Mack and Caroline Saxon, who were 33 and 35 respectively at the time, were once owned by the original Anglo-Saxons... of Europe. This novel tells the true story of the haves and the have nots and how they navigated different circumstances in life. This family on their self sufficient plantation enclave lived against all odds in the 1800's. This book shows the true story of how they did things uncommon to blacks in that day including voting and making family members politicians, building schools and churches, marrying interracially, and acquiring land and wealth that is still with the family to this day. Many relatives would go on to do great things such as have communities named after them and work and befriend President John F. Kennedy and his family. Because this book is based on a true story, there is plenty of support documentation gathered from over 30 different sources to show its validity. There is also a part of this book that shows people how to free themselves and start their own journey into the genealogy of their family.
