    Fathers of Conscience with Bernie D. Jones, PhD., JD

    in History

     


    Fathers of Conscience
    Mixed-Race Inheritance in the Antebellum South


     


    Join Author Bernie D. Jones for an engaging discussion about her book - Fathers of Conscience - Mixed-Race Inheritance in the Antebellum South. 


     


    Fathers of Conscience examines high-court decisions in the antebellum South that involved wills in which white male planters bequeathed property, freedom, or both to women of color and their mixed-race children. These men, whose wills were contested by their white relatives, had used trusts and estates law to give their slave partners and children official recognition and thus circumvent the law of slavery. The will contests that followed determined whether that elevated status would be approved or denied by courts of law.


    Jones is Associate Professor, Suffolk University Law School.  She is a graduate of the New York University Law School and the University of Virginia Department of History.

    The Good In You (The Conscience)

    in Christianity

    In John 8:1-11, Jesus has intervened on behalf of the woman, allegedly caught in the act of adultery.  Jesus is determined to gain the victory.  Jesus, as her intercessor, has attempted to appeal to the reasoning of the scribes and Pharisees as it concerned the actual legal language of the Mosiac Law.  Jesus stooped on the ground in a position of humility but with a determination to reveal the sins of the scribes and Pharisees.    Lastly, Jesus attempted to appeal to the conscience of the crowd of scribes and Pharisees with the ultimate result of gaining the woman's freedom.

    REMEMBERING THE HEART OF OUR FATHERS!

    in Religion

    This morning the Most High took me on a spiritual excursion taking a peek at the ancient sentiments of our hebrew fathers.   Trust me.   There is a powerfully distinct difference between what was the zealous convictions of our people of old as compared to today.    May we all awaken to perceive what is necessary that we be revived to become again a strong people in the earth.

    The Highs and Lows of Single Fathers Raising Daughters

    in Entertainment

    This week on WTTA, our topic of discussion will be quite interesting.  After airing, “The Delicate Dynamics of Mothers and Daughters”, I received a message from a male listener who shared some of his experiences as a single father and his relationship with his daughter.  He suggested I do a show about the topic and volunteered to share his experiences.  Within the last two weeks, I had a chance to connect with another single father of a daughter who was also willing to share his experiences. 


    Tim and Vince will give their unique perspective on being a single parent and what that entails. When we hear the title 'single parent', most of us naturally assume a female is the head of household.  In reality, there are quite a few single dads out there playing the role of dad AND mom.  I can testify that raising a male child as a single mom definitely has its challenges.  I’m curious to learn if we share similar experience and how they handle all of the little nuances that come with trying to raise a secure, intelligent woman. 


    I’d like to know: How do you handle the hair issues?  Dating? Her period? Do you date a lot?  How soon is too soon to introduce women to daughters? How do you deal with the attitudes?  I definitely have questions lol.


    The show will air Sunday, April 26, 2015 at 5:00 EST.  The Guest Call-In number is (713) 955-0703.


    Hope you can join the conversation.


    Peace & Kind Regards,

    Manifest Justice: The Impact of Socially Conscience Art.

    in Culture

    There is nothing like being emotionally moved by a piece of art. Whether it be a painting, sculpture, or some other form of creativity; the overall impression can be lasting and coerce us to rethink how we view ourselves and the world around us. 


    Manifest Justice is a large-scale pop-up art exhibition, cultural convening, and community organizing event taking place in the Baldwin Hills area of South Los Angeles. Unlike other civil rights exhibits that highlight events from the 60's, Manifest Justice is hauntingly current. Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, and Oscar Grant are but a few of the many victims who have been immortalized through the works of over 150 artists. 


    Tonight I will be joined by Nijeul Xavier Porter, a young man who is instrumental to the success of the event; and Gabriel Garcia Roman, an artist who has works on display at the event. Both will share why the event is important -especially in today's social climate-and what it means to be a part of the experience.

    Karlton Harris of S6ns on RaIsInG Six Fathers!

    in Self Help

    Author and Reality Show Father Karlton Harris is building his legacy with his SIX Sons!  He believes morals and values are deposited into people at a young age. Karlton says, “Children value what their parent’s value…When explaining the importance of your values your actions should confirm your explanation.”  Not having a father while growing up, Karlton lacked order, structure, and discipline. This led to his incarceration which also led to his change in life for better. Powerful words are spoken from a man that graduated from the school of “HARD KNOCKS” to emerge a “Change Agent” of a New Generation.  One you CAN'T mIss!
