Is Bogotá the new Harlem? Could be, if you ask Bonnie DeShong and Ja'Vonne Harley. “Each week we’re going to highlight a destination that’s rich in black history and we recently discovered that Columbia is one of those destinations,” say The Traveling Eye hosts. “Columbia has the Amazon, so there’s dense jungle, but there are also the coast lines, both the Pacific Ocean and the Carribbean Sea. They have great beaches and food and cultural diversity, including Africans who came over through slavery,” adds Bonnie. “Now, African history there certainly wasn’t the first thing that came to mind, but in 1992 there was an estimate that Afro-Columbians comprise up to 21 percent of the entire population in Columbia.”

Join us this week on The Joshua Generation as we discuss the outlook for the future of Black America and some of the challenges we will face long after President Obama is out of office. With the clock ticking on his second and last term, where do Black people stand now? Are we better off, worse off, the same, or does anyone really care? What has Bible history to do with Black America and what is the meaning of the Savior's words "The Thief Cometh Not But for to Steal, Kill and Destroy?" - John 10:10
On Saturday last, I was invited to a ceremonial chuch service called the "7 Ups." It was a beautiful program implemented and hosted by a long-time sister-friend who is a pastor at the church she serves. She told me how God gave her this revelation during a moment of prayer and quiet reflection. It contained several scriptural principles: Tighten UP, Step UP, Pray UP, Speak UP, Look UP, Break UP, and Dress UP. Seven speakers were invited, but it happened that one did not show. Even as she introduced "Sister Add On" and substituted for the no-show, I knew that role was my own. After I told her I could have spoke up on that topic for days, she admitted that she started to invite me, but didn't want to put me on the spot at the last minute. I did not SPEAK UP because I feared overstepping my boundaries and did not want to infringe on a planned program or church protocol. Tonight, I will read from an article on Urban Intellectuals named "Cotton Be Gone!" as an encouragement to Black America to Look UP! for your redemption draweth nigh (Luke 21:28), to look up to the hills from whence cometh our help (Ps. 121).
The Ku Klux Klan was originally organized in the winter of 1865-66 in Pulaski, Tennessee as a social club by six Confederate veterans. In the beginning, the Klan was a secret fraternity club. (Ku Klux was derived from the Greek "kuklos," meaning circle, and the English word clan.) The costume adopted by its members (disguises were quite common) was a mask and white robe and high conical pointed hat.
According to the founders of the Klan, it had no malicious intent in the beginning. It attracted former Civil War generals such as Nathan Bedford Forrest, the famed cavalry commander whose soldiers murdered captured black troops at Fort Pillow.The Klan spread beyond Tennessee to every state in the South and included mayors, judges, and sheriffs as well as common criminals. The Klan systematically murdered black politicians and political leaders. It beat, whipped, and murdered thousands, and intimidated tens of thousands of others from voting. Blacks often tried to fight back, but they were outnumbered and out gunned. While the main targets of Klan wrath were the political and social leaders of the black community, blacks could be murdered for almost any reason. Men, women, children, aged and crippled, were victims.In Texas, Governor Edmund Davis organized a crack state police unit, 40 percent of whose officers were black. The police made over 6,000 arrests and stopped the Klan. Armed groups of black and whites fought or threatened Klansman in North and South Carolina. The federal government also exerted its influence, empowering federal authorities with the Enforcement Acts of 1870 and 1871. Klan activity ended by 1872 and disappeared until it was revived again in 1915.
