    Is Black History Month Relevant?

    in Education

    "I am where I am because of the bridges that I crossed. Sojourner Truth was a bridge. Harriet Tubman was a bridge. Ida B. Wells was a bridge. Madame C. J. Walker was a bridge. Fannie Lou Hamer was a bridge." - Oprah Winfrey


    Is Black History Month Relevant?  Does Black History have a place in American History? Do you celebrate Black History everyday or just in the month of February?


    The Lines are open and Let's Discuss ~ Black History and Where We Are Today!

    The History of Black History Month

    in Education

    Why do we have Black History Month? This question is probably one of the most raised questions in the month of February in many classrooms across America. Blacks living in America during the early years of the twentieth century were commonly accepted as having little history other than that of slavery. Dr. Carter G. Woodson, the “Father of Black History” was fully aware of the tremendous contributions made by Blacks to this country. The accomplishment made by Blacks after slavery was celebrated in Black communities across the nation. In 1926, Dr. Carter Woodson initiated a national Negro History week to recognize and promote the achievements of Black Americans. It is commonly said that Woodson selected February to encompass the birthdays of two great Americans who played a prominent role in shaping black history, namely Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Some may ask what is so special or different about the history of Blacks living in America that warrants a month or even a year of celebration. Our guest speaker, Nathaniel Larimore has taught Social Studies for fourteen years in the Baltimore City Public Schools System. He has been teaching American Government and African American Studies at Baltimore City College High School since 2003. His current teaching assignments at Baltimore City College are American Government- CP and Theory of Knowledge-IB.

    Black History All The Time

    in Self Help

    February was chosen by author and historian Carter G. Woodson as the time for the original Black History Week because it took so long for the news to get around to Black folks that slavery had been abolished. Mr. Woodson's book, The Mis-Education of the Negro, addresses issues of education, economics and self esteem that we would be well served to take heed to in 2014. Many of the hindrances spoken of in a book written in 1933 are still alive and well today, with this in mind a look at history may be just what our modern society needs. Let us remember, those who do not learn from the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them. Join us this Thursday, February 20th from 7p-9p CDT on Rap Sessions Radio to discuss this very important topic. Log on at www.blogtalkradio.com/rapsessions or call 347.857.2097. Let us come and reason together.

    BLACK HISTORY "screwed and chopped"

    in Culture


    by Paul Ruffins
     


    Black history may have seemed “lost, stolen or strayed” at one time, but since then much of the African American past has been rediscovered and reanalyzed.


    Unfortunately, this new research hasn’t yet filtered down to high schools, and many students and others still base their thinking on the information that existed in 1968 when CBS News produced the film Black History: Lost, Stolen or Strayed. At that time, many important works on Black history were more than thirty years out of date. For example, W.E.B. DuBois wrote History of the African Slave Trade in 1896 and Black Reconstruction in 1935, and Dr. Lorenzo Green finished The Negro in Colonial New England, 1620-1776 in 1942.


    Over the past thirty years, historians, anthropologists, and other scholars such as John Blassingame, Dr. Eugene Genovese and Ira Berlin have revolutionized the study of African American life, history, and culture.


    Some facts are indisputable. A few free Africans came to the New World with Columbus. African slaves first arrived in the Spanish colonies in the Caribbean in 1502 and came to what was to become the United States of America in 1619. Over the next 250 years, some African Americans were freed or freed themselves. The U.S. banned the external slave trade in 1808, and states from Maine to Maryland gradually enacted abolition laws.


    Unfortunately, some historical questions may never be answered. For example, although estimates range from thirteen million to thirty million, we will probably never know exactly how many people were taken out of Africa during the slave trade because boats and people were counted differently in different African and European languages.


    Black Issues presents some of the latest thinking to help educators lay to rest these ten common myths and misconceptions that distort and oversimplify nearly 500 years of African American history.

We are truly blessed to have him with us tonight - a fellow laborer in the faith of Jesus Christ. See more about his ministry at: http://www.israelthechurchofjesus.com

    What is Black History?

    in History

    Developed in 1970 at Kent State University, President Gerald Ford officially made February Black History Month, also known as American American History Month, later in 1976. Unofficially, there was only a week given to Black History.


    From Fredrick Douglass, Booker T. Washington, to Martin Luther King Jr., there are many Black figures who overcame adversity to give every individual in this country the rights they have today. Their messages still resonates today and inspires future generations.

    Black History Month: The Mockery

    in Entertainment

    The Host's of EarthGrind Radio Write2Manifest and SageGram, will be discussing Black History Month and how it is being used to make a mokery of black folks.


    We are also posing the question to the Black/African community, what are we celebrating and how are we honoring the legacy of our ancestors whom are pioneers of change and fought for the liberation of Black/African people. 


    We say Mockery because we as black people have accepted our position in society as if we have really evolved.


    Many believe we are free.


    Organizations Like Google feel comfortable appropriating our warrior women on their site. Showing an image the tells a story but not the true story.


    The legacy of Black/African ancestors should be honored and celebrated everyday. Not within the confines of the shortest month of the year; but through psychological revolution, spiritual revolution,educational revolution and so on and so forth.


    We have work to do, much has been sacrificed so we can rise to the moment, where we are liberated from white supremacy and the agenda that is in the process of insuring our annihilation.

    Columbia (South America, That Is): Rich in Black History

    in Entertainment

    Is Bogotá the new Harlem? Could be, if you ask Bonnie DeShong and Ja'Vonne Harley. “Each week we’re going to highlight a destination that’s rich in black history and we recently discovered that Columbia is one of those destinations,” say The Traveling Eye hosts. “Columbia has the Amazon, so there’s dense jungle, but there are also the coast lines, both the Pacific Ocean and the Carribbean Sea. They have great beaches and food and cultural diversity, including Africans who came over through slavery,” adds Bonnie. “Now, African history there certainly wasn’t the first thing that came to mind, but in 1992 there was an estimate that Afro-Columbians comprise up to 21 percent of the entire population in Columbia.”
