    Mrs. Delores Eaton: "Harriet Tubman is My Moral Compass"

    in History

    As a proud native of Montgomery, Alabama Mrs. Delores Eaton takes no tea for the fever.  Her maternal lineage is heralded for instituting Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, which served as the focal point of the Montgomery bus boycott and launched Reverand Martin Luther King's metoric rise in the Civll Rights Movement.  Mrs. Eaton was partially sheltered from the extremisms of Jim Crow because her family was highly educated, owned land, and independently operated several business.  However, she like other African Americans, was still subjected to the wiles of segregation. In this interview Mrs. Eaton discusses encountering racism on the bus as a child, the importance of education, influential members of her community, such as E.D. Nixon, internal class struggles, the limitations of African American leadership, her role during the Movement, and her husband Herbert's divestment efforts in South Africa while at the University of Rochester.

    Dad's 1st Letter Home January 14, 1945

    in History

    There are people alive today who remember D-Day well.
    I am honored to bring you this show, my first show on the anniversary of D-Day.
    In this episode I talk a little about my parent's background, I talk about them falling in love, getting married and then Dad was sent off to fight in Europe.
    There will be many more stories coming, I have already been approached by veteran's who want to tell their family stories.  If you want to do that, my email address is at the bottom of this description.
    My father was enrolled in college to be an architect like my mother's father, and join the firm.  It was 1941 and Pearl Harbor changed all his dreams.
    I read his first letter home from a "secret" place that was very cold and snowy (I think it might have been Colorado).  He wrote beautiful eloquent love letters and I can see his hand holding the fountain pen.  His penmanship was regal.  His words better than mine, and he writes with dignity and extreme adoration for my mother.
    Please enjoy this short episode there will be more.   Meet my dad, Willy, and my mom, June and please if you have a story to tell or want to be interviewed on this show, you can reach me at carolelynnesanek@gmail.com

    Chief Langley returns with Misconceptions of Colonial History

    in History

    Most of the history that we acquire comes not from history textbooks or classroom lectures but from images that we receive from movies, television, childhood stories, and folklore. Together, these images exert a powerful influence upon the way we think about the past. Some of these images are true; others are false.  Slavery comes to mention who were they Slaves were they all African. What about British Convicts who were lable as Indentured servants. Rarely is this ever mention. Learning history and knowing thats of information that has been suppress and omitted will make one and effective family historian and genealogist.

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.
