SORT BY Relevancy
Few historians will deny that the system of institutionalized slavery was the primary factor that transformed America into an economic powerhouse and solidified its position as the most powerful nation on Earth. While slavery was clearly a blessing for the financial growth of the country, few would be so callous or so foolish as to suggest that slavery was a blessing for the millions of Blacks who were enslaved. But that is exactly what one Arkansas State Representative is proposing. In his book written in 2009 Republican Jon Hubbard states that slavery was a “Blessing in Disguise” for the Black Race. And while it may be easy to offer a response based on raw emotions. We will refrain. We will instead use the words of the Holy Bible to answer the question “Was slavery a blessing or a curse to the black man in America?”

SLAVERY, MOORS, INDIGENOUS HERITAGE AND BIRTHRIGHTS.
If you though slavery was abolished in the 1800's then, you have another thing coming. In the 21st Century, right here in the Grand United States of America we have a slavery problem of mass proportions... We call it The Prison Industrialization Complex and it affects Blacks, White, Latinos and those without means to have an attorney represent them in cases all across this country. With the prison systems going toward privatization fill quotas and sentences are “creative” to say the least. Hence, the “New Slaves.”
Join us and our special co-host Max Parthas of the New Abolitionists Radio station on Black Talk Radio Network, as we delve into this topic head on.
Max comes to us with many years of hands on experience and from the trenches of today’s topics of race, politics and the Prison Industrialization Complex. He is a husband, father, friend and prolific poet. You may remember him from a previous show on Howelegant and Toi talks on the Mask of Racism.
With the upcoming elections, the status of race relations and equality in America, you can expect that we will have a powerful conversation on this subject and those that directly relate to slavery and it’s metamorphosis in the United State of America!
Come prepared to learn, be challenged and called to task by our dynamic co-host of the evening! You will not be disappointed.
Are we still affected by slavery today? Was slavery a plot by the "white man" to keep us down or biblical prophesy for disobedience to God and his commandments? Come and join us as we discuss this Black history topic.

Leonard Todd is the author of CAROLINA CLAY, the story of the slave potter known as Dave. Newsweek calls it “a fascinating account.” Publishers Weekly describes it as “a sweeping tale of the South itself.” It was a finalist for The National Award for Arts Writing, and it won the South Carolina Center for the Book Award for Writing. It is published by W. W. Norton.
Born in South Carolina, Leonard was educated at Yale University. He is a former Fulbright Scholar to France. He lived for many years in New York City, where he began his writing career with travel articles, short stories, and novels for young adults. Two of his novels, set in areas of the South that he knew well as a boy, were optioned for film productions.
Author Leonard Todd will be talking with us about the great ceramic artisan known as “Dave,” who lived in South Carolina during the 19th century. He was a potter, a poet, and a slave.
For many years, very few details were known about this enigmatic man. Leonard, however, discovered a startling personal link to him and set out to uncover his story. The prize-winning book, CAROLINA CLAY, is the result.
Leonard now lives with his wife, a poet, in Edgefield, South Carolina, where he recently wrote the book, lyrics, and music for his first theatrical musical, SUNNY DAY, which had its premiere at the Edgefield County Theatre Company.
Leonard has told Dave’s story to audiences at the Smithsonian, at Oxford, on National Public Radio, and today he will be telling it to us.
