    June is National Caribbean-American Heritage Month


    Caribbean Americans are part of a great national tradition, descendants of hopeful, striving people who journeyed to our lands in search of a better life. They were drawn by a belief in the power of opportunity, a belief that through hard work and sacrifice, they could provide their children with chances they had never known. Thanks to these opportunities and their talent and perseverance, Caribbean Americans have contributed to every aspect of our society -- from science and medicine to business and the arts. During National Caribbean-American Heritage Month, we honor their history, culture, and essential role in the American narrative.

    Brazil vs Dominican Republic (347-855-8802)

    in Social Networking

    Tonight on "Living Off The Grid Radio" with Charles Tyler we shall compair notes on Brazil and the Dominican Republic.


    Some people "like" the Dominican Republic, while others "love"  Brazil.  If you are about to make your first tips outside of the United States Of America, then visiting the "D.R." might be a very good choice to travel to.  However there are other people that say skip the "D.R." and just head straight for Brazil.


    Either way both locations have much to offer people who like to gain new life experiences.

    I was just thinking... The 4th of July? Haiti and Dominican Republic

    in Politics

    Tonight we will let the words of Fredrick Douglass, the former ambassador to Haiti spoken by James Earl Jones, come to life, first in his speech “What does July 4th have to do with the Negro.” then we will have a speech performed by the late  Ossie Davis, Jr. as Fredrick Douglass comments on Haiti.


    These two short speeches will again enlighten us on the plight imposed on Haiti by the West and particularly France who is still made at losing the island nation and the defeat of their generals by Toussaint L'ouvertur and the Slave Holiday Americica calls the 4th of July!


    “A lie will travel the world 1000 times before the truth puts its boot on.”


    First a little background on the holiday that is celebrated in America this weekend.  Historically on July 2nd the Declaration of Independence was to be signed, but was signed on July 4th because the anti-slavery clause was removed.


    July 4th is a slave holiday!
