"I would rather die upon yonder gallows than live in slavery!"


~ Samuel "Daddy" Sharpe, 1832


These are the words of a brother who had enough of white supremacy and racial injustice in Jamaica. Arguably, Samuel Sharpe's actions would not only lead the emancipation of that island, but all slaves across the British Empire.


Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri Thursday, Dec 3 at 9 pm EST, as we explore and discuss Slave Rebellions in the Islands. Stories that are seldom shared in America will be told this week on our show. We will discuss slaves organizing and fighting to remove unjust servitude on various islands including St. Johns, Haiti, St. Lucia, and Jamaica just to name a few. Let no man lie to you, we fought, and fought hard to gain freedom. Whether we won or lost our people fought back however they could in every venue.


In addition to that brother Dennis Jefferson will be dropping by with another Healthy Matters update.
