    Audio Book, Harriet Jacobs ~Survivor of Slavery, Abolitionist and Author

    in Education

    The Gist of Freedom www.BlackHistoryUniversity.com is pleased to present to you the audio book of Harriet Jacobs, an African American abolitionist! Mrs. Jacobs  became active in the antislavery movement, and at the urging of several female abolitionists, she wrote “Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl,” which was published in 1860. Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, is a powerful depiction of the sexual abuse of female slaves. 


    Harriet Jacobs would thwart repeated sexual advancements made by slavers for years, then escape to the North. She would later publish an account of her anguished life in her autobiography, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl.


     


    Harriet had previously asked Norcom for permission to marry a free black man. Norcom had violently refused. Now Harriet had a plan to disrupt his fight for sexual conquest: She had become friends with a caring white man -- an unmarried lawyer. She would become sexually involved with this man, become pregnant, and an infuriated Norcom would sell her and her child. 


    A child was conceived.  The harassment continued even after she bore the lawyer another child. Finally, after she learned that Norcom was preparing to put her children to work as plantation slaves, she had had enough. In June of 1835, after seven years of mistreatment, Harriet escaped.


    Harriet was actively involved with the abolition movement before the launch of the Civil War. During the war she used her celebrity to raise money for black refugees. After the war she worked to improve the conditions of the recently-freed slaves.

    Race & Relations: The American Judicial System

    in The Bible

    The television is bombarded with images of the injustice of African Americans in this country and while Lady Justice is sitting quietly, turning a blind eye and deaf ear to the continuous pain and unfair mistreatment of African Americans, it's clear that though others may not value the lives of our black youths--something has to be done!


    Bishop McKinney addresses a lot of the concerns that surrounds the judicial system regarding black lives and what we need to do as a community and as a race of people to become economically ahead and not participate in destroying the lives of our fellow black sisters and brothers because it truly is a spiritual warfare!  We must be ahead of the game and stop refusing to be last when everyone who is not of African descent has benefited off of the sweat and blood of our African ancestors.  We must educate ourselves by putting down the video games and picking up a book.  We must empower ourselves by being filled with the spirit of God so that he can direct our footsteps and we must not kill each other, leaving another heartbroken parent to carry the pain of grief because the life of her/his child was snuffed out.


    Did Dr. Martin Luther King and so many march for nothing?  Did Rosa Park refuse to sit in the back of the bus for no reason?  Was Harriet Tubman's Underground Railroad in vain? But more importantly, does Black Lives Matter?

    THE DAY | OF THE| WOMAN

    in Christianity

    We will talk about women in history as well as some women you know quite well. Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Madame CJ Walker, Rosa Parks, Shirley Chisholm. But what of your very own lineage, our mothers and our grandmothers and great grandmothers. They were the leaders and disciplinarians of their day. They held close to the word of God and taught their children how to love and serve God. Women, if you are not serving and leading your children to God, then there is no point trying to lead in ministry or elsewhere. Then your own homelife condemns you.

    GJU provides an intimate look at Scholars Behind Bars with Bro Dennis Boatwright

    in Current Events

    Dennis is a self-taught Detroit native who was incarcerated for 24 years straight. While in prison he educated himself in a similar manner as The Honor Malcolm X did, or as we say here at George Jackson University, he “Transformed the criminal mentality into the Revolutionary New Afrikan Mentality.” His academic area of interest is political science, especially its subfield, International Relations.   When he was finally released from prison just 25 months ago, he went on to become a successful business owner as well as a full-time honors college student. Not only that, in the spirit of Harriet Tubman, he did not forget about those still in bondage: He founded Scholars Behind Bars, a non-profit organization geared towards providing a college-equivalent education to inmates nationwide. Specifically, Scholars Behind Bars mail out actual college textbooks to inmates based upon their academic interests, rather it be psychology, engineering, sociology, business, political science, economics, etc. This is significant because back in 1993 they terminated funding education for prisoners trying to seek higher learning. Today, college textbooks are as high as $350.00 per book; there is no way a prisoner--making 17 cents an hour--can afford to purchase a textbook. Scholars Behind Bars mail out textbooks to prisoners free of charge upon request and an initial screening. Scholars Behind Bars have active college professors who will supply syllabus to those prisoners showing exceptional dedication. Scholars Behind Bars only ask that those who care send donations to help the organization pay for the postage cost of mailing out each book.  George Jackson University and Scholars Behind Bars are looking to work hand in hand as it is obviously necessary.  Please tune and find out more about the good work our brother is doing internationally.  He is also the founder of The Center for Pan-African Studies, which we will also discuss in detail.
