    Do You Think Black Wall Street Would Work Today?

    in History

    In acknowledgement of Black Histort Month, on tonight's show we'll be having a little history lesson on "Black Wall Street", its rise, its fall, and where blacks economically stand today as a result. For those who don't know, Black Wall Street originated in Tulsa, Oklahoma; a town you may have heard of for reasons unrelated to Black Wall Street. A lot of us may have heard of the term "Black Wall Street" but lack knowledge of its history, identity and place in African American history and there's no better time to have this discussion than in Black History Month.
    "Oklahoma became an official U.S. State in 1907. During the early 20th century, Oklahoma was a state in which many blacks took refuge as it posed a more promising and habbital life style for blacks. After starting their own community (originally known as "Little Africa" later named "Greenwood" and eventually known as "Negro Wall Street" later to be named "Black Wall Street"), blacks started to expand their community and economy by building more thriving businesses.
    Blacks were faced with racial segregation laws that prevented them from shopping anywhere other than Greenwood, which ultimately played to their advantage as their money continued to circulate within their own community. Blacks were literally creating their own economy.
    In the early 20th century, there was an attempt to make Oklahoma the "First Black State" which was significant in attracting blacks to migrate there. Blacks were thriving until racial tesions lead to one of the greatest tragedies in United States history. Lead by the alleged assault of a young black 19 year old shoe shiner, Dick Rowland, on Sarah Page, a 17 year old white young lady, arguably the biggest race riot in U.S. history broke out, causing millions of dollars in damages and an esitmated death total of 300 blacks.

    George Christie: Fact from fiction of the Hells Angels

    in History

    Today, we talk with a true American legend George Christie rather then my telling you about him let's use his own words: 
    ..."As an ex-Hells Angel president—the longest serving president in club history—and one-time international spokesperson for the club, George Christie was also the rare peacemaker in a brutally violent culture. Having fought first in the early wars between motorcycle clubs on the streets of Southern California, he came to believe that guns and knives weren’t an answer. George eventually brokered peace not only among a variety of American clubs, but also helped negotiate a truce to the infamously violent Nordic Biker Wars fought between the Scandinavian chapters of the Hells Angels and the Bandidos.  ? ?After four decades of riding with the Hells Angels, George walked away, quitting in 2011. He paid dearly for that decision. Club informants seeking to save themselves provided the basis for trumped-up federal charges that sent George to La Tuna federal prison for a year. He’s been a target of his former club brothers ever since.    Since his release, George has starred in the History Channel TV show, Outlaw Chronicles: Hells Angels, started Felony Prison Consulting, a company that helps defendants navigate the justice system, and written his memoirs, Exile on Front Street. He regularly lectures to groups ranging from civic organizations and criminal justice classes, to trial lawyer conferences. After the Waco, Twin Peaks shootout, George was asked to speak to law enforcement audiences and agreed to speak on his terms to audiences of police officers, with the goal of preventing any further outlaw biker deaths."...

    NEWSBREAK - CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS WAS A BLACK MAN!

    in History

    SAY IT AIN'T SO!!!
    WORLD WEEKLY NEWS OCTOBER 10, 2011 STATES: "CAMBRIDGE, U.K. – New research done by the University of Cambridge proves conclusively that Christopher Columbus was a black man."
    "DNA analysis of the remains of Christopher Columbus, done by forensic scientists at the University of Cambridge, prove beyond a shadow a doubt that the famed navigator was of African descent."
    “A five-hundred-year-mystery has been solved,”  said Wellington Malley, the head of the Cambridge research team.  “Even though Columbus was born in Genoa, and spoke and wrote in Spanish most of his life, the DNA is clear – Columbus was 100% African.  We believe he was from the west coast, probably from what is now Cameroon.”
    Are we to blame for this cramp? Really?

About History

As Carl Sagan said, "You have to know the past to understand the present." History has shaped our nation's character, and our collective strength is measured in how we came together during our most challenging moments: the Civil War, World War I, Prohibition, World War II, the Dust Bowl, McCarthyism, the Cold War, the Challenger disaster, Operation Desert Storm, 9/11 and countless struggles before and since. But history also contains triumphs, from ending slavery to the moon landing to the fall of the Berlin Wall to Mars rover Curiosity. Join in discussion on these and more with historians, collectors, authors, professors and conspiracy theorists alike. Our hosts also show much support for our troops and military families. In fact, technology has played a big part in bringing soldiers closer to home, as they text, email and Skype from the front, and our “talk to the troops” episodes are always inspiring.
