    The Late Benjamin Freedman: The Jewish / Khazarian Connection

    in Education

    What follows is a quick 30 minute audio essay I pulled together which is an abstract from a letter that the late Benjamin Freedman wrote to his friend Dr. David Goldstein. The letter is dated October 10, 1954 (60 years ago). In the letter, Mr. Freedman who was a former Zionist details the origins of the Jewish lineage which goes back not to the Middle East but back to Europe and the Khazarian Empire. Which means today's Jews are not descendants of anyone or anything from Biblical Lore.


    Mr. Freedman’s research, which was extensive, means the Israeli claim to Palestine and other areas of the Middle East is not founded in any historical fact or evidence. His research says the Jewish claim to Palestine is unfounded since they are not Israelites but European Khazars.


    Benjamin Freedman’s research has been validated by other researchers and also by a recent DNA study released in 2012 by Dr. Eran Elhaik, an Israeli born, Jewish researcher from John Hopkins Medical University. Elhaik's scientific DNA study also points the Jewish lineage back into Europe and not Palestine or any other area within the Middle East.


    The audio transcript that follows is a portion of Mr. Freedman’s complete letter. The link to the full letter is below along with some additional information.


    I apologize upfront for the computerized voice but I tried to select one that was as easy on the ears as these voices can be.

    Afro-Latin abolitionist movements - Afro-Latin Presidents with Prof. Paul Ortiz

    in Education

    Join The Gist of Freedom with host Natasha Demosthene and guest Professor Paul Ortiz. Vicente Guerrero, Mexico’s first black president and other iconic revolutionaries will be discussed.


    Black Mexican President Ended Slavery!



    During the Civil War Slavers fled to and hid blacks in Gavelston, Texas! Vicente Guerrero, Mexico’s first black president Abolished Slavery, Assisted Escaping Blacks and Fought Texas!


    Texas President Sam Houston lamented that " two valuable negro boys for which I had paid in cash $2100 previous to my visit to Nashville, ran away last spring to Mexico. Thus you can see I am in bad luck."


    Just two and a half months after Mexico abolished slavery, officials were uneasy about the numbers of new European Americans settling within Mexico and they attempted to curb the number of newcomers.


    In 1830, Mexico decreed that foreigners could not cross the border without obtaining a passport issued by Mexican agents.Texans did not respect the MEXICAN border in their pursuits of Freed Blacks. In 1855, Captain James Callahan of the Texas Rangers entered Mexico in an attempt to recapture self-emancipated Africans.

    Black Abolitionists, Book by Benjamin Quarles Chapter 9 Vigilance Committe

    in Education

    Black Abolitionists, Book by Benjamin Quarles Chapter 9 Vigilance Committe


    Noted historian, scholar, and educator Benjamin Author Quarles was born in Boston, Massachusetts on January 23, 1904. 


    A prolific writer, Quarles published ten books, twenty-three major articles, and hundreds of shorter pieces of various sorts.  At least four of his books attained national significance:  Frederick Douglass (1948), which grew out of his doctoral research and remains the authoritative source for most of what is known about Douglass; The Negro in the American Revolution (1961), one of the first books to demonstrate the importance of including African Americans in the mainstream narratives of U.S. history; The Negro in the Making of America (1964), a text used in courses throughout the country; and Black Abolitionists (1969), a book that helped propel a major reassessment of the anti-slavery movement. 


    David Ruggles advocated for self-defense and the need for African Americans to organize and establish their own "remedy" for justice. In 1835, Ruggles and other black abolitionists formed the Committee of Vigilance (A hybrid of The Black Panthers and The NAACP) to protect free blacks and recently escaped slaves and to fight slave catchers and kidnappers.


    As David Ruggles, a leading black abolitionist, made clear in this 1836 account of a kidnapping, African Americans could not count on the police, the courts, or anti-slavery organizations.


    Richard Riker (Rikers Island named after him) [1773-1842]
    A lawyer and eventual judge who saw us on the lowest social level possible. Adipta writes, "When seven-year-old schoolboy Henry Scott was seized as a fugitive slave from his classroom, the kidnappers forcibly brought the terrified child before Richard Riker, the magistrate of New York City. They claimed that the boy was property belonging to white slaver.

    Records of Post-Civil War Federal Agencies at NARA - Reginald Washington

    in History

    The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is the official repository of the permanently valuable records of the U.S. Government.  NARA's vast holdings document the lives and experiences of persons who interacted with the Federal Government.  The records created by post-Civil War Federal Agencies are perhaps some of the most important records available for the study of black family life and genealogy.  This discussion will focus on NARA's Reference Information Paper 108.


    This reference information paper describes three post-Civil War Federal agencies' records: the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands; the Freedman's Savings and Trust Company; and the Commissioners of Claims. Case examples will be shared to illustrate the value of researching these important records.


    Reginald Washington is a retired archivist/ genealogy specialist with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). He lectures frequently on records and research procedures at the National Archives, and has served as the African-American Genealogy Subject Area Specialist at NARA. He has spoken at conferences of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society, National Genealogical Society, Federation of Genealogical Societies, National Institute on Genealogical Research, and numerous local genealogical societies and clubs.

    Maya Schenwar: Locked Down, Locked Out: Why Prisons Don't Work

    in Politics Progressive

    Join Maya Schenwar on Human Rights Demand Blogtalkradio channel, Monday, Feb. 23. Call-in at (347)857-3293. She will discuss her book, "Locked Down, Locked Out - Why Prisons Don't Work and How We Can Do Better." What did Angela Davis and Michelle Alexander say about this book, which was written by the Sr. Editor of Truthout? Their reviews are below:

    “Maya Schenwar's stories about prisoners, their families (including her own), and the thoroughly broken punishment system are rescued from any pessimism such narratives might inspire by the author's brilliant juxtaposition of abolitionist imaginaries and radical political practices.”
    —Angela Y. Davis, author of "Are Prisons Obsolete?"

    “This book has the power to transform hearts and minds, opening us to new ways of imagining what justice can mean for individuals, families, communities, and our nation as a whole. Maya Schenwar’s personal, openhearted sharing of her own family’s story, together with many other stories and real-world experiments with transformative justice, makes this book compelling, highly persuasive, and difficult to put down. I turned the last page feeling nothing less than inspired.”
    —Michelle Alexander, author of "The New Jim Crow"?

    Through the stories of prisoners and their families, including her own family’s experiences, Maya Schenwar shows how the institution that locks up 2.3 million Americans and decimates poor communities of color is shredding the ties that, if nurtured, could foster real collective safety. Schenwar profiles community-based initiatives that successfully deal with problems—both individual harm and larger social wrongs—through connection rather than isolation, moving toward a safer, freer future for all of us.
