    Inventor and Farmer, Andrew Beard~Born in Alabama in 1849, Andrew Beard spent the first fifteen years enslaved on a small farm in Alabama. A year after he was emancipated, he got married and became a farmer in a small city outside of Birmingham. While in Birmingham, he was able to develop and champion his first invention (a plow). Three years later, he patented a second plow. These two inventions earned him almost $10,000, with which he began to invest in real estate.

    Welcome Back to the Front Row! Crafty & The Adamizer EP 1

    in Current Events

    We're back! And by "we" I actually mean "we" this time and not just speaking of myself in some sort of made-up collective effort as I have been known to do. No, "we"! That's right, yours truly has found a pertner in crime. The yang for his ying, the jelly for his peanut butter....shit, that all sounds a little gay, don't it? Ladies and gents, may I present to you, the Adamizer! He's a fellow conspiracy analyst and also hails here in FEMA Region 1 but to be perfectly honest, that's all we're allowed to say other than he'll be broadcasting to us from an undsiclosed location in the White Mountains, 


    Join the Adamizer and I as we begin this new chapter in the albeit brief but very sordid and murky but occassionaly brilliant history that is, the Front Row At The Freak Show. Tonight, we'll mostly be dipping our proverbial beaks in the freaky waters, getting to know each other a little bit and of course, espousing our views on probably a little bit of everything as we see it in the Front Row. Our main focus tonight will be sort of a "State of the Freak Show" address as we each see it and provide the jumping off point to wherever the hell it is where going with this. 


    Naturally, along the way we'll try to spice it up and takes some entertainement breaks. Comedy this evening will be provide by the one and only, Mr. George Carlin while the muisc portion is still yet, TBD but you can bet your boots it's gonna be something good. Actually, I have something in mind but want to surprise the Adamizer so, can't write it down here. Let's just say you can probably bank on a little, Man in Black. 


    OK you freaks! Wednesday 2/25 8:30, be there! FYI: Our regular show will resume on Mondays at that time.

    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.
