JOIN US ON THE COMMUNITY ON OUR HISTORY AND HERITAGE AS WE TAKE PART IN DISCUSSING OUR HISTORY FROM THE MID 1800'S TO THE EARLY 1900'S. AN EXTREMELY IMPORTANT AND VOLATILE TIME THAT WENT A LONG WAY IN SHAPING MUCH OF WHO WE ARE TODAY. THE SPIRIT SHOWN IN THOSE TIMES WAS EXTRAORDINARY! WE FACED  MASSIVE HUMILIATION AND DEGRADATION, AS WELL AS TORTURE AND LYNCHINGS ON AN UNPRECEDENTED SCALE. BUT THE FACES OF RESISTANCE, BOTH KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, KEPT US MOVING FORWARD AND OUR SPIRIT UNBROKEN. IT WAS A TIME OF FREDERICK DOUGLASS, HENRY HIGHLAND GARNETT AND HARRIET TUBMAN AS WELL AS A TIME OF IDA B. WELLS, W.E.B. DUBOIS AND BOOKER T. WASHINGTON. NOT TO MENTION THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS WHO GAVE OF THEIR BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS TO MOVE OUR PEOPLE ON TO A BETTER DAY. PART 1 WAS A GOOD PREVIEW. PART 2 WILL BRING IT ALL TOGETHER!  A MUST LISTEN TO!!!
