Join The Gist of Freedom as we present The Black Abolitionists featured in Benjamin Quarles' book, Black Abolitionists.
In our first of 13 shows, Preston Washington and host Ty Gray-El will discuss chapter one; Anti-Slavery Movement Prior to The Revolution; Organizations, Churches, Colonization- John B. Vashon, Martin Delaney, Bishop Richard Allen.
Vashon paid the bounty for blacks held by slave catchers. Kidnappers received great rewards for kidnapping blacks in the North and enslaving them in the South.
This was especially true after the original Fugitive Slave Law of 1792, was revised, The Fugitive Slave Law of 1850. The federal Government deputized vigilantes and paid bounties for the capture of alleged "Runaways". In one instance, Vashon gave shelter and employment to a young man after purchasing his freedom.
Vashon was a friend of the abolitionists Martin R. Delany and William Lloyd Garrison, The Liberator, in Pittsburgh.

Roma J. Benjamin is an educator in both the spiritual and secular arenas. Her parents Porter and Mary Jane Benjamin Sr. were strong advocates of education although theirs was limited. She knew from a young age she was destined to be an educator to the multitude. Her unique personality and tough but fair love approach allows her to not only educate children and be a positive role model. Benjamin is also the Senior Pastor of Greater Faith Ministries, Harrisburg, PA. She is also the founder of New Sound Literacy and Technology Center. Pastor Benjamin’s boldness and total commitment to the Word of God is evidence of her “no-nonsense” approach to very sensitive and difficult situations. Illiteracy is a sensitive issue in which she has had firsthand experience with. During her tenure as a teacher and principal, she experienced failing students passed through the system with very little chance of recovery. Fighting in a failing system for the life of students, she decided that ‘enough is enough’ and walked away from a six-digit job to obey a God-given mandate, a call to action to address the perpetual culture of functionally illiterate children. Dr. Benjamin has been in public school education for 18 years. She taught grades 1-8 and also served as principal in elementary, alternative education, middle and high school. Dr. Benjamin was sent to buildings that were failing academically and had major behavioral issues. The grace of God and the anointing on her life allowed her to bring much change, where buildings went from failure to success. In addition to being a pastor and recently retired principal, Dr. Benjamin is currently writing her 1st book entitled, “Crossing the Finish Line-Only to Begin the Journey.” She has appeared on the Word Network and continues to be on a variety of radio talk show interviews discussing the illiteracy issues.

THE NDUSTRY PRESENTS THE BRILLIANT, SMOOTH, JAZZ GUITARIST, CLAY BENJAMIN!
Clay Benjamin began playing guitar at age 13 in a musical family, which brought him great support. He joined his first band, One Accord, at age 16, the youngest in a key group of experienced musicians. There he started doing live recording sessions while perfecting his onstage presence. Then in 1997, Benjamin became the touring lead guitarist for smooth jazz artist Paul Howards as well as the fusion jazz group Segue. He spent years opening up for legendary artists like Chuck Loeb, Four Play, The Rippingtons, James Brown, Kool and The Gang, Ray Charles, The Commodores and even The Yellow Jackets, the band from that fateful clear cassette tape.
Benjamin went on to play for the show band Diggin' before most recently having the opportunity to tour as the rhythm guitarist for Rev. Al Green. He has graced the stages of The Royal Albert Hall in London; The Hollywood Bowl in Hollywood, California; The Manchester Coliseum in Manchester, England; Red Rock Amphitheatre in Colorado; and the BB King Blues Club and Madison Square Garden in New York. His in-studio talent has been secured by gospel stars Uncle Reece and Tito T'Juan and featured on Troy Sneed's charted gospel hit “My Heart Says Yes” and Donald Hayes's album Reflections Vol. 2.
Benjamin is currently embarking on his first solo jazz instrumental project, wearing the hats of performer, writer and producer with equal grace and deftness. The project's first single “I Need You” was met with resounding approval when it debuted at the Jacksonville Jazz Festival early 2014. “I Need You”, as well as his 2011 album Intervention is available on iTunes, Amazon and most music web stores.
