I’ve been meaning to show you guys this! My amazing friend edenkathleencousins recently gave me their replica pirate flintlock pistol! It’s freaking awesome and I love it so much. (they also gave me some wonderful goblets that now sit on my altar and window sill!) I’ve been collecting and gathering up a lot of pirate-related items and books (and knowledge!) lately, and it just makes me so happy. I know that a lot of the pirate stuff I focus on is the more stereotypical side and is from only one part of piracy in history, but whatever, you got to start somewhere. xD
Do you have information on Caribbean pirates that weren't white dudes? Or slaves brought to the Caribbean who became pirates? Books I'm reading mention that they existed, but don't give me any details.
