    A Panel of Two Authors Shining the Spotlight on Hubert Harrison

    in Writing

    The Virgin Islands Literary Festival and Book Fair will feature several events highlighting the historic Crucian writer and  activist, Hubert Harrison, the weekend of March 26-29. Saturday evening, March 28th, there will be a performance of David Edgecombe’s play Hubert Harrison. 


    Today we meet two gentlemen who diligently worked to bring the biography of a forgotten Virgin Islander to the forefront. One, an author, the other, a playwright, but they both wrote about Crucian-born Hubert Harrison,


    Dr. David Edgecombe, writer, director, instructor, and playwright has worked at the University of the Virgin Islands from 1990 to present. In 1992, he became director of the Reichhold Center for the Arts. He's "internationally known for several plays, including Strong Currents and Coming Home to Roost. Upon returning to the Islands, David joined the faculty at the University of the Virgin Islands and became their artist-in-residence, premièring his play, Heaven.


    Dr. Jeffrey Perry, formally educated at Princeton, Harvard, Rutgers, and Columbia,  preserved and inventoried the Hubert H. Harrison Papers and helped to place them at the Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Columbia University and to develop the Hubert H. Harrison Papers, 1893-1927: Finding Aid. He is the editor of A Hubert Harrison Reader (Wesleyan University Press, 2001) and the forthcoming Writings of Hubert Harrison.


    Dr. Perry will deliver a keynote address and a presentation discussing his work uncovering Harrison’s writings and documenting his story and work in Perry’s book, Hubert Harrison: The Voice of Harlem Radicalism, 1883-1918 (Columbia University Press).


    Follow Dr. David Edgecombe and Dr. Jeffrey Perry on their Facebook page.

    The Heretics' Hour: Why Tolerance is the 'toxic trait'

    in Education

    TOLERANCE is the by-word of the post-1960's era. It is enshrined today in academia, taking the place of "Truth" as the highest ideal to be achieved through  education. The why and wherefore will be explained.


    Carolyn Yeager will discuss Adolf Hitler's views on Tolerance, using references from Mein Kampf in 1925, his paper "Road to Resurgence" in 1927, Table Talk in 1941-42, and his "Talk to Officers at Platterhof" in 1944. His views on tolerance, race and rulership remain surprisingly consistent. His economic views will also be discussed in regard to "Road to Resurgence."

    Memorial For Eugene Hilchey

    in Music

    Today I'm doing a broadcast for my father Eugene Hilchey. Sadly he passed away February 2, 2015, I talked with him the day before and let him know how much I love him. I was not notified of his passing and found out on my own after sending authorities to his home three days ago when I could not reach him by telephone. I want to dedicate this broadcast to him. Dad always wanted me to go into broadcasting and this is as close as I ever came and he was proud of this show and listened weekly. Born in 1927 dad was a musician and played with somw of the great Big Band leaders. His drum skins are signed by Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa Glenn Miller, Benmny Goodman and many others. Today I will be playing his favorite songs

    AMERICAN MENTORS: Evelyn Walker Armstrong Scholars

    in Relationships

    On behalf of the YouthUSA Corporate Village of beneficiaries, stakeholders and officers, we are, in this season, collectively mourning the loss of a pillar in our community and this nation.  Ms. Evelyn Walker Armstrong served as a founding director for the national 501c3 public charity, Youth Achievers USA Institute (EIN 20-4945833).  She contributed faithfully through executive consultation and philanthropic investment until her death on January 10, 2015.


    In September 2006, Evelyn co-founded The J.D. and Laurena Walker Fund, as the development program of Youth Achievers USA Institute.  She has since served as chair of that program task force. In this capacity, she constantly challenged her fellow officers to accomplish great works with modest means. 


    Up to the final hours of her “dash,” that symbolic measure of her temporal economy on earth from April 18, 1927 to January 10, 2015, Evelyn was at work, tasking care givers from Visiting Nurses Association with feeding her one last meal of grits, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage and black coffee; and spiritually, through reading scriptures from Romans 8 and Proverbs.  Sadly, she expressed her perceived failure in life was the inability to motivate her beloved Walker family members to work “on the positive side of the ledger” to improve their own lifestyles with goals and promote The J.D. and Laurena Walker Fund.


    Youth Achievers USA Institute is ready, willing and able to assist trustees and attorneys in developing program supports in the area of positive youth development.  We pray that our combined efforts to engage Evelyn’s friends, colleagues and beneficiaries will enhance your capacity for transforming Evelyn’s vision of young people as community assets on the positive side of the ledger.

    BATH MASSACRE-Arnie Bernstein

    in Entertainment

    On May 18, 1927, the small town of Bath, Michigan, was forever changed when Andrew Kehoe set off a cache of explosives concealed in the basement of the local school. Thirty-eight children and six adults were dead, among them Kehoe, who had literally blown himself to bits by setting off a dynamite charge in his car. The next day, on Kehoe's farm, what was left of his wife---burned beyond recognition after Kehoe set his property and buildings ablaze---was found tied to a handcart, her skull crushed. With seemingly endless stories of school violence and suicide bombers filling today's headlines, Bath Massacre serves as a reminder that terrorism and large-scale murder are nothing new. 
    "A chilling and historic character study of the unfathomable suffering that desperation and fury, once unleashed inside a twisted mind, can wreak on a small town. Contemporary mass murderers Timothy McVeigh, Columbine's Dylan Klebold, and Virginia Tech's Seung-Hui Cho can each trace their horrific genealogy of terror to one man: Bath school bomber Andrew Kehoe.

    John Carver - Bob Farrell - Give em the Pickle

    in Self Help

    I heard this talk years ago and want to share it with you today.


    Born in beautiful Brooklyn, New York, in 1927, a bouncing baby boy named Bobby Farrell was introduced to the world. His grandfather, Patrick Farrell, owned a successful auto parts company and life was good in "the old neighborhood." When the stock market crashed in 1929, it took its toll on the business and the family. Bob Farrell's father took his own life when Bob was only four years old. His mother couldn't cope and placed him and his sister in an orphanage. It was a safe place run by loving people. "I remember crying when I arrived and crying when I left," Bob would later recall, "I'm sure I gave those poor people a harder time than they gave me." His mother remarried five years later and got her children back.


    In 1973, Bob Farrell sold his fifty-five store chain of ice cream parlors to the Marriot Corporation. He remained as its spokesperson and they added nearly a hundred more stores. It was during this time that he developed a speech for new employees called, "Give 'em the Pickle!", based on a letter he received from a disappointed customer. This speech began the third chapter of his career as a highly sought-after motivational speaker and author.

    The Asatir - Book of the Secrets of Moses

    in Religion

    An ancient document,  "The Asatir ", the Samaritan Book of the Secrets of Moses was first translated from the Samaritan script and became known by Dr. Gaster's publication of it in 1927. He says, "I claim for the Secrets of Moses that it is the oldest book in existence of this kind of literature. " It was compiled, he says, " about the middle or end of the third century B.C.". The Samaritans hold the book in high esteem and ascribe it to Moses, and say that the old tradition "has been preserved unaltered down to our very days". In chapter iii. 9 of this book it states that Adam possessed three books and that " In seven years he (Noah) learned the three books of creation: the Book of Signs, the Book of Astronomy and the Book of the wars which is the Book of the generations of Adam". Dr. Gaster says (P. 36) that the Samaritans "declared the calculation of the Calendar to be a Divine revelation made to Adam, Genesis i. 14, where the luminaries are set into the heavens to be for 'signs, and for seasons, and for days, and for years', has been taken by the Samaritans to prove that from the very beginning . . . this knowledge had been imparted to Adam ". Much is written about the Book of Signs which was given to Adam (ii. 7), and Enoch is said to have " learned from the Book of Signs" which was given to Adam. In ii. 12 it is said that "Adam started reading the Book of Signs before his sons". Noah obtained possession of it (iii. 9) and in iv. 15 it is said that Noah gave it to Arpachshad, from Arpachshad the knowledge was handed down to Abraham, to Joseph, to Moses (p. 36).
