During his military career he was captured during a movement in Hungary against the Turks. After being enslaved for a time he was sent to serve a mistress for awhile before being sent again on to the mistress's brother. In the hands of this man, Smith was required to do farm work and received harsh treatment. John, in turn of this harsh treatment, ended up killing the man he was working for and escaped to England a short time later (early 1600s).

William Johnson was a slave before being freed at age 11, along with his mother, Amy, and sister, Adelia. He got his barber shop in 1830 from his half brother, James Miller. After starting his barber shop, he keeps a diary and he used it until he died. He also owned a bathhouse and bookstore.He married named Ann Battles, who was also a free african american. They had about 11 children before Johnson died. He lived in the free town of Natchez, and he almost had about three thousand dollars in 1835.

Winn was upset and shot Johnson when he was returning to
William Johnson was born a slave in the year 1809 but was freed by his owner, probably his father in 1820. His owner had earlier released William’s sister and mother. William Johnson upon being freed became a barber apprentice in Natchez town. William’s brother-in-law had a barbershop which he took over in 1830 and later on got married to Amy Battles. They had eleven children. Amy was a free person and just like William was black (National Humanities Center Resource Toolbox, 2007). William Johnson went on to operate several barbershops, owned land, and rented buildings. He also had a bathhouse and regularly loaned white and black people money which was paid at an interest. Like other free blacks in the South, William Johnson owned slaves and at times sold them too. The diary is a record of his daily personal endeavors, majorly about the payment of his debts, the items he bought and the running of his family. William was murdered by a free black man, Baylor Winn, with whom they had a boundary conflict. Despite his murderer being identified, he escaped prosecution since according to his evidence, he was a white man, and so no black man could testify against him (Humanities Center Resource Toolbox, 2007).
Dr. Umar Johnson bought up a lot of different topics about his about and about what is going on around us in the world. One thing that stood out to me was dating outside of your race, No I am not racist and I don't have an issue with anyone dating outside of their race but my personal opinion is to marry inside of my ethnicity. White people would never know what we go through as black women and black men and on how we get judged and how we get treated or shot when getting pulled over. Most videos that go viral is about a black man getting shot for reaching over to get license, insurance, and registration, is that right? No because they aren’t giving the black men in the world a chance because the police officers are so scared for their lives
