"I can't love my children and not love someone else's child" is the force behind my life, living, and my book.

Background Information

  Dr. Gerald S. Norde is the first Black American to graduate with a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Delaware, 1985. His dissertation topic is the sexual and reproductive relations between the South's slave owners and their female slaves. He holds a Master of Science degree in Education,  Southern Illinois University, 1975, and a Bachelor of Arts degree (Spanish Major), Southern Illinois University, 1971. He has over 30 years of teaching experiences at the elementary, secondary, and college/university levels of education.  He is a certified Spanish Teacher (Maryland) and has taught Spanish with Baltimore City Public Schools (current), the District of Columbia Public and Charter Schools; Prince George's County and Wicomico County Public Schools, Maryland; Dayton, Ohio Public and Charter Schools; and the Illinois Dept. of Corrections School District, Adult and Juvenile Divisions. Dr. Norde has held either professorships or adjunct positions with the University of the District of Columbia; Lincoln University, PA; Central State University, OH; University of Maryland Eastern Shore; George Washington University, and currently with Delaware State University. He has publications in journals related to criminal justice and correctional education. At this point in his lifetime, his greatest accomplishment is the publication of Peculiar Affinity... This book represents over 24 long years of research on the sexual and reproductive relations between the South's White slave owners and their Black female slaves. Dr. Norde's research proves that these two human bodies, along with their sexual and reproductive relations, managed to breed, manufacture, and produce some 5-7 million children, off-spring.  These children were then bought and sold as commodities and as Negro slaves by their own fathers, the slave owners.

  The motivation behind writing the book, Peculiar Affinity, are the millions of children who were Negro slaves, especially girls, and who were bred and manufactured as Negro slaves and as commodities by their slave-owning fathers. Can one imagine being a child, a girl or girls, at the age of 9 or 10,  sexually abused by being being bred by their own fathers, being pregnant at such a young age, or being bought and sold right off the shelf in the slave markets by their own fathers, and being children, especially girls, and never knowing how to laugh, ever? Has their history ever been told?

  In addition, the motivation behind this book is a re-interpretation of Black American history and slavery in the United States (U.S.).  The human kind needs to recognize the very unique history and heritage of those millions of children who were born from the sexual and reproductive relations between the South's White slave owners and their Black female slaves.  More importantly, human kind needs to recognize that the history of those children is not an African history or that their heritage is not an African slave heritage. For example, the current and prior research on U.S. histroy indicates that the South's slave-owning fathers had millions of other children with their White wives, and additional children from the slave owners' other White women, i.e., White concubines,  love affairs with other White women, divorce and re-marriage to White women, etc. In its simplicity, the children from the slave owners' White wives and other women and the children from their Black female slaves were, in fact, brothers and sisters to each other. The re-interpretation of Black American history is based upon the fact that these millions of slave owners' Black children is not an African history because their fathers, the slave owners, were White and European.  How and why is it that the slave owners' children from their White wives and other White women are classified and recognized as White with a European heritage while, at the same time, the same slave owners' children from is female slaves are recognized as or referred to as  Negroes with an African heritage and neither the slave-owning fathers nor their female slaves were African. Within the culture of the U.S.  particularly within the family, patriarchy is the ruling authority. That is, the fathers' historical lineage and legacy determine the history and heritage of the family. Within the U.S, if your father is Italian then his children are Italian. On the other hand, you cannot be Jewish unless you mother is Jewish, matriarchy. The history of slavery and family in the U.S. need a re-interpretation and this re-interpretation needs to be based upon the sexual and reproductive relations between the South's White slave owners and their Black female slaves, along with their children.
