SORT BY Relevancy
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.

If you suffer from Slave Mentality, your mindset can't be repaired overnight; in order to reverse the damage, it will take time to reprogram your mind, but it can be done.You cannot be victorious and have a succesful, positive life if you have a victim mentality. Of course you will encounter difficulties and hardships in life, but the answer is not blaming others; the answer is taking responsibility for your actions or creating a solution (or finding others who can help you) even if you're not at fault. How can we reclaim our identity? What can we do to abandon tthe beliefs of this mindset?

“It isn’t the American white man who is a racist, but it’s the American political, economic and social atmosphere that automatically nourishes a racist psychology in the white man.”

Before American slavery abolition, the total slave population south of the Mason-Dixon line was somewhere in the likes of FOUR MILLION predominately black people. The US government instituted chattel slavery and made BILLIONS OF DOLLARS from free slave labor. The tactics used by slave owners left Black Americans and other minorities stripped of their native tongues, religion and culture. We killed if we became literate and were taught to hate each other simply because of skin complexion.
Today, Black Americans are subjected to a NEW form of slavery. Many feel that the effects of slavery in the 18th and 19th century are still felt today. We were slaves then and we are slaves now; just this time it seems irreversible, right? Or are blacks in a much better position? Have we gained strides in America? This episode, we discuss the effects of slavery on Black Americans today, if any.

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.
