    American White History Month - South African Series

    in Politics Conservative

    Join American White History Month this Thursday 5th March, 2015 with host Karin Smith and two great guests.


    Cuan Elgin "A True Story of South Africa - BULALA".  


    Deeply researched, the Scottish-Irish-descended South African-born author travelled over 15,500 miles [25,000 km.] across South Africa to every historical site mentioned in the narrative, in his first-hand investigative research. You will learn, laugh, and cry—but more importantly, understand the actual events which transpired in this controversial, southern-most African nation, without the bias of the media or the pressured slant of special-interest groups. 


    Joining us will be Don Deon  - 


    I started the Southern African Commonwealth (Bondstaat) initiative which aims to reconnect all Southern Africa’s diverse people with their heritage and culture and traditions.  The first step in this for the Afrikaner people was to setup the SAUK Nuus news website and facebook page. This is vital to give the people their identity back and also crucial in the fight against all the forms of genocide.


    I am fighting for TRUE diversity, TRUE multiculturism and True Independence in South Africa for the minorities, and worldwide...


    This will be a very informative and entertaining show - so dial in, call in - we look forward to hearing from you

    African American History & The Civil War

    in Radio

    New Book Details Long-Forgotten and Controversial Civil War Battle in Louisiana Former Slaves’ Fight at Milliken’s Bend Led to Congressional Investigation Baton Rouge—At Milliken’s Bend, Louisiana, a Union force composed predominantly of former slaves met their Confederate adversaries in one of the bloodiest engagements of the war. This small yet important fight received some initial widespread attention but soon drifted into obscurity. In Milliken’s Bend, Linda Barnickel uncovers the story of this long-forgotten and highly controversial battle. Controversial charges made after the battle eventually led to a congressional investigation and contributed to the suspension of prisoner exchanges between North and South. Barnickel’s compelling and comprehensive account of the battle illuminates not only the immense complexity of the events that transpired in northeastern Louisiana during the Vicksburg Campaign but also the implications of Milliken’s Bend upon the war as a whole. The battle contributed to southerners’ increasing fears of slave insurrection and heightened their anxieties about emancipation. In the North, it helped foster a commitment to allow free blacks and former slaves to take part in the war to end slavery. And for African Americans, both free and enslaved, Milliken’s Bend symbolized their never-ending struggle for freedom. Linda Barnickel is an archivist and freelance writer with master’s degrees from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and The Ohio State University. Passionate about discovering the hidden and fascinating stories of history, she is interested in local history, military history, oral history, and the cultural power of archives.

    Should African Americans Celebrate St. Patrick's Day

    in Culture

    TONIGHT: Listen to The African History Network Show, Thurs., March, 19th, 8:00pm-10:00pm EST (5:00am-7:00pm PST) with host Michael Imhotep.  We’ll also discuss “Should African Americans Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day”.  Call in with your Questions/Comments at 914-338-1375.  


    Around this time of the year you will see St. Patrick’s Day Parades, Kiss Me I’m Irish T-Shirts, Green Beer, Leprechauns, etc.  It is expected that 127 million Americans will spend approximately $4.6 Billion during this St. Patrick’s Day holiday.  One of the strangest things you will see is African Americans participating in this “celebration”.  Do you really know what you are celebrating?  Have you studied the history of St. Patrick’s Day?  Even if you claim that you have Irish Ancestry do you really know what you are celebrating? 


    Did you know that Patrick was not Irish he was British?  Why do we participate in celebrations without knowing what we are participating in?  If you wear Green on St. Patrick’s Day, will you wear Red, Black & Green on African Liberation Day?  If not, why not?  I’m pretty sure you have more African Ancestry than Irish Ancestry. 


    Malaika Cooper of “The Baltimore Natural Hair Care Expo” and Relationship Expert C.J. Gross will join us to talk about this upcoming Natural Hair Care Expo in Baltimore, Sat. March 21st & Sun. March 22nd.  Don’t miss workshops by Michael Imhotep of The African History Network Show dealing with “Great Black Women In History”.  Visit www.AfricanHistoryNetwork.com.
