SORT BY Relevancy
Hosted By: LaShawn Allen-Muhammad
Who were the first Black Elected Officials? During the month of November, as the country gears up to re-elect or vote in the next wave of politicians, Black Reconstruction will revisit the Reconstruction era to pay homage to the Black Men who came before Obama. During this tumultuous time, Blacks not only established townships, they also positioned themselves to be an integral part of government.
At a Glance.. In 1855, Brownhelm Township, founded by Col. Henry Brown, gained notoriety throughout the U.S, when the township elected an African-American to government office. The NY Syracuse Daily Journal, May 31, 1855 reported that John Mercer Langston was a fugitive slave who had been elected clerk. Brownhelm's early residents had long been known for their strong anti-slavery stance; and Col. Henry Brown's home on the Lake Shore was often a final stop on the Underground Railroad, before reaching Canada by boat. African-American Firsts: Government
Local elected official: John Mercer Langston, 1855, town clerk of Brownhelm Township, Ohio.

Black Family Reconstruction Roundtable w/ Brick Da Foundation and Shango RBG
Peace and Black Family,
Welcome to another episode of Do Tha Knowlegde Radio. The place where Knowledge is Born. I am your host Knowledge Born Allah. The Black Family is the foundation of the Universe. The quintessential creative force from which all other life forms experience reality. The devastation traumatic and malicious removal of this collective powerhouse has caused a paradigm shift in the thoughts deeds and actions of the originators of civilization and as a result the universe is in disarray. In order for the unverse to return to its proper working order, we must return to our proper place within self which is the precursor to realignment of the uiverse and universal family. In spirit of the ancestors we have assembled a Black Family Reconstruction Roundtable assembled. We summon the divine minds of Brick Da Foundation and Shango RBG to aid us in the discussion of reconstruction of the Black family.
