Denise Griggs started digging into her family's history after asking her Aunt Julie the question, "Who's the white man on the wall?" She learned that the man in the picture was great-great grandmother's brother Peter Hunt, the son of an Irish slave owner and a slave named America, Hunt joined the United States Colored Troops of the Union Army after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation.
Griggs blended oral history with historic records to write a book on her great-great-great uncle and was even able to find family in Ireland and traced her family history back to the ninth century.
Peter Hunt Mulatto, born of a slave owner and his slave named America, Ironically they were enslaved on a plantation in a town named Liberty, Mississippi.
Please join host Antoinette Harrell and co-host Dr. Okpara Nosakhere for a discussion with the author Denise Griggs.
Have you attempted to prove oral history shared by family members and friends? Join author, book publisher and family historian Denise I. Griggs as she describes the research process she went through to find documents to prove and/or disprove the oral family history given by her grandfather, Wilbert Hunt, and his sister, Julia Hunt-Richardson. Ms. Griggs is a native of California whose parental ancestry is from Mississippi and Arkansas. She has written several books: A Mulatto Slave, the Events in the Life of Peter Hunt, 1844-1915, a comical book, Look What Shook from the Family Tree!, and a children’s beginning genealogy pamphlet, I Know Who I Am On the Family Tree.
Through her research, she has traced her mother’s family from Mississippi to County Tipperary, Ireland. Her forefathers were in the American Revolution, and the War of 1812. Another one of her maternal ancestor’s was a former slave who joined the United States Colored Troops during the Civil War in 1864, and mustered out from the 6th Heavy Artillery, serving in 1866.
This is my final assignment for my EDU648 class. I will be addressing this following: (1) Under what circumstances did the slave trade begin? (2) How did the Islamic Slave Trade change the existing system? (3)How did it change again during the Atlantic Slave Trade? (4) Finally, what impact did slave trade have on Africa and the Western world?
I would like to give a special thanks to my instructor, Dr. Christopher Sorenson. I've learned a lot from him because he has been one of the most patient and knowledgeable instructors I have ever had. It's been a real pleasure learning from you.
This episode we will be hooking up RetroDeviant and doll to explore the Master / slave relationship and explain what this dynamic entails and what it means to them! Retro is a handful so it should be a pretty funny episode!! Im sure the stories will be pretty sexy too. Get ready to dive into the sexy deep end!
What role did the Irish play in the Transatlantic slave trade? Were the Irish ever enslaved or slave owners?
Join my special guest, Dr. Maurice Gleeson for a compelling overview of Ireland and the Slave Trade.
Dr. Maurice Gleeson is a psychiatrist from Dublin who works in London as a pharmaceutical physician. He is an avid genealogist and has traced his Irish family tree back to about 1800 on half of his ancestral lines. Using DNA, he was able to get back into the 1600's on one line, and this inspired his interest in Ireland's involvement with the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

Join Joseph McGill for a discussion on site in a slave cabin at the Hopsewee Plantation in Georgetown County, South Carolina.
Since May 2010, Joseph McGill has spent a night in over 50 extant slave dwellings in the states of Alabama, Connecticut, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia, all in an attempt to bring much needed attention to these often neglected structures. Known as the Slave Dwelling Project, it has been successful in highlighting the stewards of properties that are doing all that is necessary to preserve, interpret, maintain and sustain these structures. The project has also identified many structures that are in desperate need of restoration. What started as a personal quest has now evolved into a not-for-profit organization. The project’s popularity does not allow McGill to sleep in these places alone anymore. On Thursday, May 29, 2014, McGill will spend the night in a slave cabin at Hopsewee Plantation in Georgetown County, SC, he will be joined by a high school group from Milwaukee, WI and their chaperons. Join us to gain insight on the future of the Slave Dwelling Project and plans for the first Slave Dwelling Project Conference which will be held in Savannah, GA, September 18 – 20, 2014.
With popular movies coming out like the Hunger Games and The Purge it's easy to get caught up in the story lines. Who would have thought that anything like what we see on the big screen could actually be possible.
Teens were drugged, stripped naked, raped, hunted down in the woods and killed by European royals according to this week’s latest eyewitness to testify before the International Common Law Court of Justice in Brussels. The woman was the fourth eyewitness to give accounts about these human hunting parties of the global elite Ninth Circle Satanic Child Sacrifice Cult network. A former member of the Netherlands criminal drug syndicate known as Octopus testified that victims were obtained for these human hunting parties from juvenile detention centers in Belgium and Holland.

Join Sarah Abel for a discussion of her research in genetics and identity.
EUROTAST is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN), supporting a new generation of science and humanities researchers to uncover and interpret new evidence on the history and contemporary legacies of the transatlantic slave trade. The network will be running for four years from 2012 to 2016, and will enable 13 PhD researchers in history, archaeology, social anthropology and population genetics to work collaboratively across disciplines to provide new perspectives on this history. The research will focus on three themes: Origins, Life Cycles, and Legacies, which they hope will not only lead them to further detail the slave trading system, but also help demonstrate how slavery fundamentally shaped the cultural and biological experiences of people of African descent around the world.
Sarah Abel is a British PhD researcher, based at the International Centre for Research on Slaveries (Centre international de recherches sur les esclavages, CIRESC) in Paris, France. Abel specializes in the history of slave resistance and race relations in Latin American and Caribbean. Overall, her research aims to look at how the rise in public access to genetic technologies and data is changing the ways in which we think about personal identity, ancestry, and 'race' in different parts of the Atlantic world today.
Toni Morrison said, "The Empire of Necessity is scholarship at it's best. Greg Grandin's deft penetration into the marrow of the slave industry is compelling, brilliant, and necessary."
Join The Gist of Freedom Tonight www.blackHistoryBLOG.com as we discuss the book "The Empire of Necessity" with author Greg Grandin!
Tryal was the ship whose human “cargo” had rebelled, murdered their owner along with a score of other whites and demanded that Cerreño sail them back to Africa. Fifty years later, Melville made Delano’s story the basis of a short novel that he called “Benito Cereno.” Grandin writes about the unknowable inner lives of the Revolters, a reticence that elevates the novella far above the antislavery manifestoes of the slavery era in which the enslaved appear in one form of caricature or another. He conveyed the horror of slavery while looking unblinkingly at the reciprocal fury of self-liberated slaves toward those who had enslaved them.
Grandin …. reconstructing the world through which the revolters moved toward their strike at freedom, he has done more than any previous scholar — and there have been many — to illuminate the context of the work in which Melville confronted slavery without presuming to comprehend its vast ramifications. “The Empire of Necessity” is also a significant contribution to the largely impossible yet imperative effort to retrieve some trace of the countless lives that slavery consumed.
