The photos of enslaved West Africans show these quilted coded patterns from the quilts "ichie" marks cut into their skin
If you read the book, Hidden In Plain View, written by Jackie Tobin should tune in to The Gist of Freedom with Roy Paul (@RoyPaulReports) and his guest, author Mrs.Teresa Kemp! Teresa book The Keeper of the Fire book covers not just Igbo Tribe's slavery but slavery in Africa by Arabs and Africans.
Many people questions the encoded quilts. They argue enslaved Africans were not intelligent enough to out smart the Slavers. What many fail to understand, that most Africans were multi-langual. They wrote and read in more than on language. Many asked who could understand the coded quilt pattern language. Tonight's guest, Mrs. Kemp has posters from Nigeria that date the symbols and patterns to 1400 AD this is clearly before the Civil War in America 1861-1865. We have the linage of 3 Eze's of Igbo land to 1042, 1087, 1092 BC.

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.

Join The Gist of Freedom as we discuss The Michael Brown and Eric Garner Grand Jury Verdicts. Police not Indicted, For The deaths of Unarmed Black Men, with Attorney Activist, Michael Coard Esq.!
8pm ET~ www.BlackHistoryBlog.com
"I can't breathe"
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 suspected of selling illegal cigarettes in Staten Island, after a police chokehold rendered him unable to breathe.
The cop, Pantaleo, who held Eric Garner in the chokehold that killed him has been sued three times for allegedly violating the constitutional rights of other blacks he and fellow cops arrested.
Unlike Mike Brown's death, 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.”
Besides the banned chokehold used by the cop, throwing a beefy arm around his neck, there was lethal danger in the way Mr. Garner was subdued — on his stomach, with a pile of cops on his back.
“positional asphyxia” quoted the Department’s guidelines on preventing deaths in custody.
The New York medical examiner’s office ruled Mr. Garner’s death a homicide, it cited “compression of neck (choke hold), compression of chest and prone positioning during physical restraint by police.” The pressure prevents the diaphragm from going up and down, and he can’t inhale and exhale.”
Which is exactly what Mr. Garner was trying to tell the officers who were on top of him when he said "I can't breathe"
On Wednesday, a grand jury decided not to indict Daniel Pantaleo, the plainclothes NYPD officer who was making the arrest.

On tonight's 'LIVE' episode of "CONTACT", Host and Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Lesley Mitchell-Clarke welcomes back the programme, author, metaphysician and psychic/etheric healer, PATRICK POWELL. Pat has spent over twenty-five years in the milieus of information and computer technologies, and has also been a much sought-after “Thought Leader” in several Fortune 100 companies. It is certainly ironic – and even puzzling to some – as to how Pat’s left-brain analytical past has somehow led him to a deep connection with the spiritual world that is now at the heart of his current physical expression in the third physical density. Pat Powell has now demonstrated significant, re-producible abilities that some might refer to as “supernatural”. These abilities have been documented in his two illuminating books: STILL NOTHING and The GREAT BOOK OF EXISTENCE, which chronicle his spiritual journey as well as his continued education, awareness and honing of his psychic/spiritual skills.

"It was the custom in the State of Maryland to require the free colored people to have what were called free papers. These instruments they were required to renew very often, and by charging a fee for this writing, considerable sums from time to time were collected by the State. In these papers the name, age, color, height, and form of the freeman were described, together with any scars or other marks upon his person which could assist in his identification. This device in some measure defeated itself-since more than one man could be found to answer the same general description. Hence many slaves could escape by personating the owner of one set of papers; and this was often done as follows: A slave, nearly or sufficiently answering the description set forth in the papers, would borrow or hire them them till by means of them he could escape to a free State, and then, by mail or otherwise, would return them to the owner. The operation was a hazardous one for the lender as well as for the borrower. A failure on the part of the fugitive to send back the papers would imperil his benefactor, and the discovery of the papers in possession of the wrong man would imperil both the fugitive and his friend."
