The Gist of Freedom is pleased to present to you the reading of William Still's Underground Railroad, 1871! William Still was the Black abolitionist from Philadelphia who was described by the New York Times as "The Father of the Underground Railroad". He commissioned Harriet Tubman's rescue missions. This famous abolitionist literally wrote theUnderground Railroad book. The book which explained the story, narratives often in the words of the participants in the effort to escape slavery. This first reading of William Still's Book The Underground railroad, will recount the story of his reunion with his long lost enslaved brother Peter Still, formerly known as Peter Gist.

Underground Railroad Love Story, hid in the crevices of Caves and Swam through snake ridden Swamps….. to reunite with wife.
William Jordan's heart revolted, for he was warmly attached to his wife, and so he made up his mind, if he could not see her " once or twice a year even," as he had been promised, he had rather "die," or live in a "cave in -the wood," than to remain all his
life under the governor's yoke.

At this juncture, the fugitives verily believing that the time had arrived for the practical use of their pistols and dirks, pulled them out of their concealment—the young women as well as the young men—and declared they would not be "taken!" One of the white men raised his gun, pointing the muzzle directly towards one of the young women, with the threat that he would "shoot," etc. "Shoot! shoot!! shoot!!!" she exclaimed,

AN UNDERGROUND RAILROAD REUNION - MEETING OF BLIND FATHER AND HIS SONS,
Jackson found his poor old father here, The Underground Rail Road's Vigilance Committee.
In Philadelphia, where he had resided for a number of years in a state of almost total blindness, and of course in much parental anxiety about his boys in chains. On the arrival of Jackson, his heart overflowed with joy and gratitude not easily described, as the old man had hardly been able to muster faith enough to believe that he should ever look with his dim eyes upon one of his sons in Freedom. After a day or two's tarrying, Jackson took his departure for
safer and more healthful localities, her "British Majesty's possessions." The old man remained only to feel more keenly than ever, the pang of
having sons still toiling in hopeless servitude.
If you believe in a God who punishes his children with eternal damnation and torture, can you think of anyone who deserves it more than Andrew Breitbart? A man who lied, who targeted those he perceived as weak and used bullying tactics, lies and an entire media establishment to tear down careers?
Well, on March 1, 2012, Fate tapped Andy on the shoulder and said, "That's enough out of you." But as I describe in my book, "Eating Breitbart," the death of Andrew Breitbart made his organization leaderless and without direction, but even more dangerous as the fools he left behind engaged in activities that Andrew Breitbart would never have approved of.
On this show, we will chronicle the decaying empire of the dead Andrew Breitbart and the self-destruction of the slow moving blowflies that still feast on his decomposing corpse.
On this episode, we perform a post-mortem of my appearance on Ali Akbar's Breitbot Lie Fest on BTR Oct. 24, and we will share our argument against WJJ Hoge's "Peace Order" that we would have presented if we had been allowed to speak in court.
