    Black Reconstruction #LaShawnAllenMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Business

    Hosted By: LaShawn Allen-Muhammad


    Who were the first Black Elected Officials? During the month of November, as the country gears up to re-elect or vote in the next wave of politicians, Black Reconstruction will revisit the Reconstruction era to pay homage to the Black Men who came before Obama.  During this tumultuous time, Blacks not only established townships, they also positioned themselves to be an integral part of government.   


    At a Glance.. In 1855, Brownhelm Township, founded by Col. Henry Brown,  gained notoriety throughout the U.S, when the township elected an African-American to government office.  The NY Syracuse Daily Journal, May 31, 1855 reported that John Mercer Langston was a fugitive slave who had been elected clerk.  Brownhelm's early residents had long been known for their strong anti-slavery stance; and Col. Henry Brown's home on the Lake Shore was often a final stop on the Underground Railroad, before reaching Canada by boat.    African-American Firsts: Government


    Local elected official: John Mercer Langston, 1855, town clerk of Brownhelm Township, Ohio.


    State elected official: Alexander Lucius Twilight, 1836, the Vermont legislature.


    Governor  (appointed): P.B.S. Pinchback served as governor of Louisiana from Dec. 9, 1872-Jan. 13, 1873, during impeachment proceedings against the elected governor.


    U.S. Representative: Joseph Rainey became a Congressman from South Carolina in 1870 and was reelected four more times. 


    U.S. Senator: Hiram Revels became Senator from Mississippi from Feb. 25, 1870, to March 4, 1871, during Reconstruction.  


    There have only been a total of five black senators in U.S. history: the remaining two are Blanche K. Bruce [1875-1881] and Barack Obama

    in Lifestyle

    A Sparrow in Terezin shares the truth of the Terezin concentration camp during WWII. Of the approximate 150k prisoners at Terezin, nearly 90k were deported to extermination camps. Of the 15k children sent to Terezin, fewer than 100 survived. How did an arts community thrived there?


    ·         Your new book has a unique title — A Sparrow in Terezin. Where is Terezin, and what happened there?


    ·         How was Terezin different than other concentration camps we may be more familiar with?


    ·         What compelled you to tell this particular story?


    ·     Where did you first hear their story?


    ·         Why did the arts thrive in Terezin? 


    ·         Did you struggle telling such a devastating story? 


    ·         Do you ever wonder if you would have had the same courage and strength shown by Kája?


    ·         What are some ways to rebuild trust in any relationship after it’s been broken?


    ·         You wrote A Sparrow in Terezin during a difficult time in your own family; what happened?
