JuneTeenth is a celebration of freedom. An American celebration of freedom. A new beginning. It was JuneTeenth 1865, 2 1/2 years after slavery was no longer legal in America, that General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, TX to free the last American slaves. Texas seceded because of the intent to keep slaves. After all, slaves were property. Texans wasn't letting even the federal government take away their property. It took an army to free the last slaves. Freedom still had and still has prices to be paid. Bills were passed to help the freed slaves. But White men protested helping the now freed "Negroes". White men said helping freed slaves would only cause the Negroes to not want to sustain themselves. Ignorance of what. Today, the same statements are made. We work for little money. The results is working poor qualify for food stamps and other support services. Then GOP says poor people are not contributing to this country. Similar statements were made today by congress rep. Newt said poor children does not know anything about working for money. Newt said no one works in poor communities. These are words from the days of freedom for slaves. Slaves worked and built farms, companies, railroads, roads and byways. Slaves cooked, cleaned, raised animals, raised masters children, cared for livestock, created tools, with work skills the learned in Africa. Knowledge proved powerful. For the works of the slaves helped slaves to purchase their families and buy their own freedom. After all, . the greed of the White Wealthy Men reigned over all else. As is today for too many. JuneTeenth we celebrate a coming of age for America. Not just freedom of slaves. For a chain cannot be any stronger than its weakest link America. Together we stand. Divided we fall.
As our inaugural show, we will talk about how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream is still yet unrealized, and perhaps after the election of Barack Obama, the dream has experienced a set back.
We open the episode talking about the history of Juneteenth, and then Mickey Rowe relates the experiences of his mother's childhood in Muncie, Indiana, where the last lynching in the Northern States took place in nearby Marion. We then discuss how, even in Mickey's lifetime, there were constant reminders

The south lost the Civil War and the loss left disgrundle White men, even today. Some wealthy, most poor. The White man longed for life before civil war. Slow motion Civil war acts lives today. result was the passing of laws, know as black codes, so that White supremacy still would reign.
Yes, there would be no more US slavery, but there would be laws and anyone who come against those laws would be imprisoned and treated as slaves were treated. See 14th Amendment. JuneTeenth ended slavery in America. The strength of Blacks to endure changed America for better.
JuneTeenth always was celebrated in my family. My great grandmother was a slave. My great grandfather was an Indian. My maternal and paternal grandparents owned their own farms. My parents left their parents farms and relocated to Houston, where they found work and attempted to raise a family. Racism would take down my father's pride. He was skilled in many areas, yet he could not find work, or the work he had would not adequately support his family. He suffered an on the job injury, and never again was able to support his family.
Through all my family endured, never once did any adults in my life teach or practice hatred of White people. We were taught to work hard, be honest, and do unto others as you would have them do unto you. JuneTeenth commemorates the strength of my family. Happy JuneTeenth!

Juneteenth, a blend of June and Nineteenth symbolizing June 19th, is a celebration of the announcement of the abolition of slavery on June 18,1865 in Galveston, Texas. This occurred due to the state of Texas's refusal to comply with the Emancipation Proclamation signed into law by president Abraham Lincoln on September 22, 1862. I have listed these facts for one reason, many people today do not know what Juneteenth is all about and approach it as just another excuse to fire up the grill. Here in Tulsa, Oklahoma the site of this year's celebration has been moved to the Brady District, an area named for one of the leaders of the KKK at time of the 1921 Race Riot. What does this mean? Can you celebrate in an area where your ancestors were slaughtered? Can you really move on from something without addressing it? Please join us this Sunday, June 23 from 3p-5p and give your opinion on this very emotional topic. Log on at blogtalkradio.com/rapsessions or call in at 347.857.2097.

Finally Free!,Today we commemorate the emancipation of our ancestors with joyful celebrations called Juneteenth. Thousands of Freed Slaves seized the chance to legally walk away from the plantation that held then for generations, migrating as never before. But in their journey to freedom, they also encountered yellow fever, smallpox, cholera, dysentery, malnutrition, starvation, and exposure.
WHY!?? WHAT does this reveal about Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation, and it's TRUE intent? READ.
In "Sick From Freedom" our guest James Downs recounts the measures the US government took to address this crisis:The Medical Division which hired more than 120 physicians, establishing some forty underfinanced and understaffed hospitals scattered throughout the South,
largely in response to medical emergencies. Downs shows that the goal of the Medical Division was to promote a healthy workforce, an aim which often excluded a wide range of freed people,including women, the elderly, the physically disabled, and children. Downs concludes by tracing how the Reconstruction policy was then implemented in the American West, where it was also disastrously applied to Native Americans. In this interview we will analyze the widespread medical calamity sparked by emancipation, the clearly convoluted intentions of the Lincoln administration in an over looked episode of the Civil War and its aftermath, poignantly revealed in "Sick from Freedom"
