Mystery Theme #4 by PolinskyL

Question 6

WHAT IS THE NAME for a member of a group of African slaves who escaped Caribbean slavery, often going into hiding in less accessible territory? Their populations were large enough in some places (esp. Jamaica) to threaten the colonial powers and sign treaties with them, and small settlements exist to this day. In no way comparable would be the experience of a high school graduate who leaves home to go it alone (usually less permanently, and often with parental help on the tuition front) at an elite institution on the south side of the Windy City.
