The Blacks of Ulcinj (aka the Nigri/Mauros Latinis)
Has anybody heard the story of the Black african families who live around Ulcinj, they date back from Roman times.[Editor: when they probably came as Moorish cavalries of the Roman legion.]
They have stayed in that area ever since keeping themselves to themselves.
I heard there are only 6 families left, but they all speak Serbo Croat.
A friend of My father Mr Cuddon, who was also my english teacher at school [an expert of Yugoslavia too], wrote a travellers guide to Yugoslavia and went in search of these people.
He searched high and low, but could not find them, until one day he was in a remote part of Montenegro near Ulcinj standing under shelter because it was pouring with rain and a deep voice asked him what the time was in perfect Serbo-Croation, he turned around and to his amazement he saw a black man, who was one of these African Montenegrins, unfortunately the black man had no info on his ancestors and had a lack of education because of no schooling, so it was hard to get any info off him.
Does anybody know anymore info on these people?
