The nation is all abuzz about President Obama's decision to put a black face on a $20 bill - the legendary liberator of slaves, Harriet Tubman, known in her time as Moses, who freed hundreds of slaves and said she would have freed thousands more "If they had only known they were slaves." Of course a dollar bill is only a symbol, but what a powerful symbol it is to have an African American woman so honored to be placed on a symbol of currency that, up to this point in time, has been reserved exclusively for "dead Presidents." Will this new bill force more discussion about slavery and what extreme measures it took to finally abolish it? How will those in Confederate states respond to this decision? Is this one of those memorable actions that will characterize President Obama's legacy as the first African American U. S. President? How can we make this $20 bill a teaching tool to enable white and black children to understand the depth of degradation slavery represented and the tremendous sacrifice and courage it took for Harriet Tubman to resist not only enslavement of herself, but the many men women and children she helped escape to freedom? Can the placement of Harriet Tubman on a $20 bill be an emotionally healing act for African Americans? Historian and Linguist Hussain Abdul Quddus, who performs on stage in a portrayal of abolitionist Frederick Douglas, joins us to look at the impact of this new $20 bill.
Whew! It's been an emotional week for most. A musical genius and icon has been called home. Yes... Prince Rogers Nelson, better known as Prince is dead. He died at the young age of 57. America has made a step forward, or have we? Harriet Tubman is slated to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. Some feel this is actually an insult and a step back. We welcome Dorrian Carraway to the show tonight to give his opinion and to CHop it up. What did you think of the knife wheeling grandma?!? Recent debate: do most women and most men see their mates as unappealing as the years go on and find themselves with a wandering eye. And On the political front: Trump gives a shout-out to Joe Paterno to see if he is doing okay, and Hillary and Bernie are going at it…

Today on "It's My House" we shall do a study of Harriet Tubman who was a Grand Masteer "Social Networker" and "Social Capitalist". Mrs. Tubman did not have access to a cell phone, any type of computer, and she had no internet connection...........however she did more "social networking" and leveraged more "social capital" than the average person who walks the earth today.
We shall take a look at the methods that she used for the "Underground Railroad", which was a "social network" for slaves who wanted to live freedom and start their businesses.
Our goal is to apply her methods to our techno world here in 2015 and beyond.
Tubman's organizing ability was key to her success -- she had to work with supporters on the clandestine Underground Railroad, as well as get messages to the slaves, since she met them away from their plantations to avoid detection. They usually left on a Saturday evening, as the Sabbath might delay anyone noticing their absence for another day, and if anyone did note their flight, the Sabbath would certainly delay anyone from organizing an effective pursuit or publishing a reward.
Tubman was only about five feet tall, but she was smart and she was strong -- and she carried a long rifle. She used the rifle not only to intimidate pro-slavery people they might meet, but also to keep any of the slaves from backing out. She threatened any who seemed like they were about to leave, telling them that "dead Negroes tell no tales." A slave who returned from one of these trips could betray too many secrets: who had helped, what paths the flight had taken, how messages were passed..
Quakers Released Slaves
Not only did many Quakers release their slaves, but they saw to it that they could take care of themselves, teaching them to read and write and, in many cases, seeing that they were escorted to states or territories where they could live in freedom.
Quaker John Woolman was involved with the abolitionist movement from an early date. He traveled the countryside, preaching against slavery. Woolman, born in 1720, became convinced that slavery was wrong when, at the age 20, he was asked by his employer to write a bill of sale for a slave girl. He did write it, but told his boss that he “believed slave-keeping to be a practice inconsistent with the Christian religion.” Shortly after this incident, Woodman left his job to travel and was instrumental in spreading the abolitionist message.
