    A Middle Passage Survivor, in his own words shares his story~ Olaudah Equiano!

    in Education

    Tonight on The Gist of Freedom listen to excerpts from the autobiography of Olaudah Equiano, a survivor of the middle passage! www.BlackHistoryBLOG.com
    --Survived The Middle Passage, purchased his freedom, became a black abolitionist  and  authored the first known  Enslaved African Narrative . He was a famous proponent of British abolitionism and worked with William Wilberforce.  His story is featured in the movie Amazing Grace.
    He settled in the United Kingdom in 1792. His autobiography, "The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano", depicts the horrors of slavery and influenced the enactment of the Slave Trade Act of 1807.                                                               


       They put us in separate parcels, and examined us attentively. They also made us jump, and pointed to the land, signifying we were to go there. We thought by this, we should be eaten by these ugly men, as they appeared to us; and, when soon after we were all put down under the deck again, there was much dread and trembling among us, and nothing but bitter cries to be heard all the night from these apprehensions, insomuch, that at last the white people got some old slaves from the land to pacify us. They told us we were not to be eaten, but to work, and were soon to go on land, where we should see many of our country people. This report eased us much. And sure enough, soon after we were landed, there came to us Africans of all languages.

    A Measure Of Truth w/ Author of Going Public , Kyle Freedman

    in Radio

    Kyle Freeman got started in business marketing in 1996 in San Diego,


    California. He was the first field coordinator promoted in the region, in 


    record time. He left the company after several years and became the 


    head trainer of a similar company in the telecom marketing industry. 


    Spending many years with two different companies, he decided to set 


    out on his own. In 2003 he created Juice Marketing, Inc., he served as 


    President and CEO for the next five years. In that period of time under 


    his leadership the company JMI became JMI Telecom Corp a publically 


    traded company and one of the only minority owned public utilities in 


    NC and Kentucky. He is well known and respected in the network 


    marketing community.


    Kyle served in the United States Navy as a Chief Petty Officer. After 24 


    years of service with the Navy and Naval Reserves he retired with 


    honors in 2008.


    Now Kyle is ready for his next assignment as an author and speaker 


    his goal is to help small to medium size businesses as well as veteran 


    owned businesses find funding sources for their companies and 


    projects. Most new businesses fail within the first five years due to a 


    lack of funding. His knowledge of venture capital and source funding is 


    what helped him and his partners become a public traded company. 


    His goal to help 10,000 companies become publicly traded is lofty but 


    he is more than ready for the challenge. As in the Navy Chiefs lead 


    from the front.
