    African and Native American Research with Angela Walton-Raji

    in History

    Genealogist Angela Walton-Raji has committed herself to sharing information with the descendants of the Freedmen of Indian Territory--which is now Oklahoma. She is the author of  the book Black Indian Genealogy Research: African American Ancestors Among the Five Civilized Tribes. The book serves as a guide to researching the history and lives of the 20,000 Freedmen of Indian Territory, who have been deleted from American history. She is also the author of the http://african-nativeamerican.blogspot.com.


    The Dawes Commission, named after Henry C. Dawes who chaired the commission, consisted of a process that would lead to a redistribution of land to those who already owned it among the Five "Civilized" Tribes. Understand that land was held in common by the Five Civilized Tribes. The Dawes Enrollment process was created to determine who would be eligible for allotted parcels of land. Eligibility involved providing "proof" that one had been a part of the tribe for several decades, and especially in those years immediately following the Civil War. So one had to prove that one had been a part of the Indian Community since 1866. For those whose ancestors were enslaved by members of the Tribes, (the Freedmen)  they had to often provide proof that their former enslaver was a member of the tribe.

    African-American Leaders A-Z- By Dr. Andrea Berry

    Dr. Berry currently serves as an instructional Supervisor of Equity, Diversity, Special Programs, and English Language Learners on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Dr. Berry-Opher is an educator with 19 years of experience in a variety of capacities such as teacher, assistant principal, principal, district level supervisor, adjunct college professor, presenter, etc.


    Dr. Berry is a proven collaborative administrator who demonstrates expertise in empowering teaching staffs, successful implementation of professional learning communities through book studies and action research, influencing cultural diversity awareness, and providing high quality teacher professional development. 


    In the journey of life, Dr. Berry strives to make educating youth a smooth process. She advocates, mentors, collaborates, celebrates and works tirelessly to help what one of her mentors calls, “Our Most Valuable Resource, CHILDREN.”


    A vital stitch in the education of a child is their knowledge base about heritage. Although we pay tribute to African American History in the month of February, it is imperative for students to see the impact role models of color have on their daily life and existence year round. Providing exposure to the unsung African American leaders in our country is the ultimate educational gift to children and my humble attempt to recognize greatness in the African American community.

    The End of The African American?

    in Politics

    THE END OF THE AFRICAN AMERICAN?


    For most of our existence in America, the nation has needed us—for free labor, for cheap labor, for scapegoating and for the raping of our culture.


    But America has co-opted Black Culture to the point where it is currently packaging what it deems to be Black Culture and selling it back to us. It has other cultures to use for cheap labor and, of course, we are still scapegoats.


    There is no reason for us to exist.


    We have been so diminished that we don't want to live around us and many of us think the worst of us.


    With no real need for us to exist, it is quite possible that the African American will diminish into irrelevance.


    Listen to The Bridge Radio tomorrow at 4pm Pacific as we discuss the future of African Americans. Join Award-Winning Author Darryl James and co-hosts Tracy Powell, Dr. John Hamilton, Marcus D. LeGall III and DJ Gates on one of the most intellectually stimulating shows on radio.
