International Anti-Slavery Movement-Book Black Abolitionist chapters 7& 8! when the idea suddenly flashed across my mind of shutting myself up in a box, and getting myself conveyed as dry goods to a free state. he did not think I could live in a box for so long a time as would be necessary to convey me to Philadelphia,
where I was again placed with my head down, and in this dreadful position had to remain nearly an hour and a half, which, from the sufferings I had thus to endure, seemed like an age to me, but I was forgetting the battle of liberty, and I was resolved to conquer or die. I felt my eyes swelling as if they would burst from their sockets; and the veins on my temples were dreadfully distended with pressure of blood upon my head. In this position I attempted to lift my hand to my face but I had no power to move it; I felt a cold sweat coming over me which seemed to be a warning that death was about to terminate my earthly miseries, but as I feared even that, less than slavery,
I resolved to submit to the will of God, and under the influence of that impression, I lifted up my soul in prayer to God, who alone, was able to deliver me. My cry was soon heard, for I could hear a man saying to another, that he had travelled a long way and had been standing there two hours, and he would like to get somewhat to sit down; so perceiving my box, standing on end, he threw it down and then two sat upon it.

Jean Libby is the radio interview guest on Lesley Gist's American History through Black Literature series, The Gist of Freedom, on May 9 at 8 p.m. EDT. Jean Libby will reprise the reading of the last chapter of Benjamin Quarles' Black Abolitionists discussing John Brown . Libby will describe how Professor Quarles research and encouragement was formative in her John Brown studies beginning in 1977 and continuing with naming the ad hoc group which wrote and published John Brown Mysteries in 1999 Allies for Freedom in his honor.
The Gist of Freedom is pleased to present to you the reading of William Still's Underground Railroad, 1871! William Still was the Black abolitionist from Philadelphia who was described by the New York Times as "The Father of the Underground Railroad". He commissioned Harriet Tubman's rescue missions. This famous abolitionist literally wrote theUnderground Railroad book. The book which explained the story, narratives often in the words of the participants in the effort to escape slavery. This first reading of William Still's Book The Underground railroad, will recount the story of his reunion with his long lost enslaved brother Peter Still, formerly known as Peter Gist. It will also tell the story of Peter's very own John Brown like martyr, Seth Conklin. Still also campaigned for an end to racial discrimination in Philadelphia. In 1859 he organized the effort to end black exclusion from Philadelphia streetcars. This campaign was described in Still’s first publication, Struggle for the Civil Rights of the Coloured People of Philadelphia in the City Railway Cars in 1867.
Generation No More welcomes abolitionist Kiera Samantha!! What do you think of when you hear the words Human Triafficking? Do you suddenly get a picture of women being shipped around the world to various locations for various duties?
Kiera Samantha is a survivor of a different sort of Human Trafficking; one that goes on in every city across the Untied States. A form of trafficking which sucks the teens today into their arms like a new family, but then forces them into either dealing drugs or selling their body in order to continue their funding.
This type of Human Trafficking is what our street gangs do with our children ever single day. If the child is not happy at home or no one there to connect with, they will go find someone who will be there. These gangs are what our kids run to these days and they are becoming increasingly violent.
Kiera and the growing team at Oaklahomans Against Trafficking Humans knows this ugly truth all too well. They know how easy it is for our young girls to be drawn into this crowd looking for friendship, cute boys, or what they believe is a SAFE place. Our young sons are searching out the male bonding, the weapons, the money earned from the sell of drugs. This is trafficking in every city across the nation. Will you become aware and help teens in trouble??

Join me and Thommi for a Mid Career Edition of Loving Mondays and Everyday of the Work Week.
Members of the baby boom generation are moving into what we typically call the "retirement" phase of life, but they are not having it. They are simply not ready financially, emotionally or otherwise to ease out or be pushed out of the work world.
They have initiated a new phase of work as they search for work that answers their calling, work where they experience a deeper sense of purpose, fulfillment and sustained joy.
Marc Freedman calls them "encore career pioneers" in his book, Encore: Finding Work That Matters in the Second Half of Life.

Back from the woods and trails of Maine, Nicole Freedman resumes as director of Boston bikes program. We talk about safety, driver/cyclist relations, HubWay expansion, cycletracks and more.
Boston lacks the broad, rectangular layout avenues that make separated cycling feasible in places like NYC. Freedman already has a record of designing and creating Hub-specific alternatives. We'll ask what her second wind will bring.
Note: Nicole was busy as always. She comes in about 24 minutes in, but we get a good 20 or so minutes from her. Her comments are worth waiting for or advancing the program.
Join The Gist of Freedom as we welcome Kimberly Simmons- Descendant of The Militant Abolitionist Lewis Leary, (John Brown Raider and The "John Price Rescue").

John Brown Historian, Jean Libby!
Known as the “Emperor,” Shields Green played a role in John Brown’s Raid on Harper's Ferry. As a young man he escaped through the Underground Railroad network to Rochester, New York, where Frederick Douglass provided shelter and introduced him to radical abolitionists. He accompanied Frederick Douglass to Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, where the great abolitionist spoke to John Brown for the last time. Brown was unsuccessful in convincing Douglass to join him in the raid; he did, however, recruit the young Green.
Get It Done!
