Will this make a good historical drama/action movie involving blacks slavery?
Between 1622~1680, China free black slaves, smuggling slaves back to China, via Chinese trade ships to Europe. After defeating Portuguese in 1641, China force them to free over 200 slaves. Amount black refugees to China, joining Chinese marines, is a 300 men, all black special forces, name Black Tigers. Led by black Colonel Matos(ex slave). In China Dutch war, black tigers fought 1st line defeating 1st line Dutch easily and got remaining Dutch troops to surrender. (Below is a recent found, shocking then Dutch paint, show Dutch civilians welcoming Chinese invaders, puzzle modern historians)
Are you talking about the actions in Malacca? Modern day Malyasia? I don't find any evidence of African slaves being shipped back by the Chinese. Sounds a little altruistic for anyone in the 1640s. If you have sources, let us know.
There really is little info on this, I'll see if I can find the original source, I saw this online, If my memory is correct, this is another war after the Malacca war, where Portuguese navy raided one China's black slave refugee camp, off its coast
CJ Kelly, the information on the black tigers, I find are all written in Chinese.
However, I did find this book that talk about the Chinese Dutch war, written by historian Adrade Tonio, http://press.princeton.edu/titles/9525.html#evendors maybe the book would have say something about the black tigers. I am surprise there are so little info on them, even amount Chinese sources, the black tigers, was the most elite special forces of China, during that time, maybe it is because they only number in 300, which mean despite they are the best of the best, they can't along perform function that require a lot of men power.
Were these African slaves? Or from southeast Asia? Indian? What confuses a Westerner is the use of the term "black slaves," which implies from Africa. I know in Asia it might have a different connotation.
Mandarin sources I found say they are African blacks, Some then wealthy Chinese purchase or smuggle them, to set free, after China's Emperor announced giving African slaves asylum. It create tension leading to a China Portuguese war, which China won
