    The Black Death was a worldwide pandemic which killed about 200 million people and left millions of others in need of a new way of life.

    The Black Death killed over two million people, according to the World Health Organization, a significant number in a region where mortality is a matter of national pride.

    In the UK, the rate of deaths is about 10,000 per day.

    But the term “Black death” itself is not commonly used to describe the pandemic, because it is often understood as an event of national shame.

    The term was coined by the historian and sociologist Mark Twain in his 1893 novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

    In it, Huck has an encounter with a black man who has come to live with him and who has become his surrogate son.

    The author says the black man, whose name is Sam, is “a black man whose soul is in the dark”.

    Huck is given Sam’s name because he was a black person living in the Black Hills in South Dakota.

    The Black Hills is an area in South Carolina that Twain was not particularly fond of, as he was “fiercely protective of the white race”.

    The Black Hills are part of what Twain described as the “white man’s land”, which was a region in the United States that he believed was “so large and so rich and so populous that we have never before seen an American race.”

    In The Adventures Of Huckleberries Finn, Huck is given a black identity, which he uses to help him cope with his newfound identity.

    Huck also has a white father, who is not particularly supportive of his efforts to become a better person.

    Sam’s mother, who has died, is also not supportive of Huck’s life choices.

    The novel also portrays Huck as a self-sufficient, independent, self-made man, and his relationship with his family is described as “a kind of happy and loving one”.

    But in The Black Plague, Huck’s family’s economic fortunes collapse, which makes him feel “sick of his surroundings”.

    “The Black Plague” is set in 1820, and follows a young black woman named Lydia.

    Lydia’s husband dies and her brother is killed by the plague.

    Hump’s mother is also killed in the plague and is never seen again.

    When Huck and his brother get married, the new couple decide to raise their children in the small town of Greenfield, Missouri.

    However, the marriage is not going well and the new parents decide to move to Greenfield.

    Huston says that the Black Plague and the Black Death were both events of national importance, because they marked the end of the world as we know it.

    “It’s very clear that we’ve entered the post-World War II era,” he said.

    “So we can say that the black death and the pandemics both mark the end.”

    The BBC is working on a documentary on the Black Deaths called “Black Death” and a book is also planned, titled “The Black Race”.
