Greetings, I am Phil Fixico, a Seminole Maroon Descendant. My ancestors were among the people that this play is talking about, both Maroon Blacks and Seminole Indians. My and their story is currently featured in the Smithsonian Institution's , book and exhibit, entitled: "indiVisible":Africa n-Native American Lives in the Americas. Dr. Kevin Mulroy, the Dean of Library Sciences at Chaffey College, is the World's Leading Authority on Seminole Maroons. He was the Smithsonian Institution's researcher who documented my geneaology , for the book and the exhibit, he is also, the author of the definitive book on this topic. It is entitled: "The Seminole Freedmen", Published by , University of Oklahoma Press, copywright 2007. I have not seen the play, as of yet, however, I'm overjoyed that, at last the story , that was" hidden and forbidden" is coming out. I have been asked to appear on a panel at the Los Angeles Theater Center, following a matinee performance in Los Angeles on November 3rd, 2013. I am honored and thrilled to join a panel that includes, Rev. Dr. Cecil "Chip" Murray, USC and Professor Hanay Geiogamah , UCLA. The topic for discussion is , "Exploring African-Native American and Native American Spiritualty".
