Inventor and Farmer, Andrew Beard~Born in Alabama in 1849, Andrew Beard spent the first fifteen years enslaved on a small farm in Alabama. A year after he was emancipated, he got married and became a farmer in a small city outside of Birmingham. While in Birmingham, he was able to develop and champion his first invention (a plow). Three years later, he patented a second plow. These two inventions earned him almost $10,000, with which he began to invest in real estate.

Join The Gist of Freedom and host Shellie Gaines as we talk to award winning playwright Nikkole Salter about her play Repairing A Nation!
THE STORY: 2001, B.O. (Before Obama) The Davis family meets for what should be a text-book Christmas holiday season in their native Tulsa, OK. But when Lois insists the family join a class action law suit for reparations, old family wounds are ripped open and we discover that the government isn't the only one being asked to apologize.
This is part three of a four part series.
The third show will discuss how women start, support, and fund these movements. We will discuss how black women have been co-opted out of history and have been pushed to the side by power hungry black men and whites, in some cases.
The #BlackLivesMatter is the Millennial movement and not the Civil Rights vanguard who have done nothing but fatten their pockets and stomachs since MLK.

First, let me say that Emily and I are happy that you are here!
My name is Leslie and I am known as The Bible Belt Mystic. I have an Intuitive Coaching & Healing Ministry in Norman, Oklahoma. I found Emily a little over a year ago and I instantly knew she was an Earth Angel with much to offer the world. So I took Emily under my (Angel) wing – and now, we offer this weekly show to help you create a better life.
Maybe you are stuck because of a past life or a soul contract . . . or maybe it’s a hidden belief system or multi-lifetime vow of suffering. . . You have to know what’s holding you back before you can release it and heal your life.
After you’ve discovered what you need to release, then you must work to create the vibrational alignment for what you want in your life.
I want to see everyone live an Empowered and Inspired Life – and this means YOU!
Because I had so many people telling me “I am utterly unhappy in my life. I hate my job. I’m lonely. I have no money, and I really do want change. But I cannot afford to see an Intuitive or a Coach” – Emily and I teamed up to bring you Conscious Creator Coaching – your FREE Weekly Conscious Coaching Session.
If you are ready to become a Conscious Creator in your own life – I am ready to show you the way.
As an Intuitive Coach, I can look at your present path and determine if you are in alignment with what you desire. And if you’re not, I can give you the steps to create the alignment that you need to create the life you desire!

On Christmas Eve 1855, Barnaby Grigsby and his wife Mary Elizabeth, took the slaver's best team of horses and his carriage, packed it with knives and guns, and fled slavery. Grigsby and Elizabeth were married.
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 the Underground Railroad book. The book which explained the story, narratives often in the words of the participants in the effort to escape slavery.
Click to Listen To The Gist of Freedom is pleased to present to you "The Bold Strike For Freedom" an excerpt from William Still's Book, The Underground Railroad with guest Erik Estep!
Join The Gist of Freedom as we discuss The Michael Brown and Eric Garner Grand Jury Verdicts, Police not Indicted, ForThe deaths of Unarmed Black Men, with Roy Paul!
Weeks before the shooting death of Michael Brown this August in Ferguson, Missouri, the death of Eric Garner set off its own wave of protests. The father of six died in July while being arrested for selling illegal cigarettes in Staten Island, after a police chokehold rendered him unable to breathe.
On Wednesday, a grand jury decided not to indict Daniel Pantaleo, the plainclothes NYPD officer who was making the arrest.
There are plenty of differences between the cases of Garner and Brown, but one particular contrast remains salient: There was no footage of Michael Brown's death, only eyewitness accounts and conjecture, leaving minds to imagine a standoff between an officer and a civilian, a standoff that ended with the image of Brown lying dead in the street for over four hours.
Garner's death has harrowing digital footprints. His attempted arrest and struggle for air were captured on a widely-disseminated video. His final words were “I can’t breathe.”
In the aftermath of the verdict, many will likely point to the fact that the coroner's report ruled Garner's death a homicide, and that chokeholds are expressly forbidden by the NYPD.
