Boston State Senator William Owens, with Donald Brown on The Gist of Freedom and TANDLRADIO.COM! This show is in honor of George Edwin Taylor!
More than one hundred years before Barack Obama, George Edwin Taylor made presidential history. Born in the antebellum South to an enslaved black man and a freed woman, Taylor became one of the first African American ticketed as a political party’s nominee for president of the United States, running against Theodore Roosevelt in 1904.

Orphaned as a child at the peak of the Civil War, Taylor spent several years homeless before boarding a Mississippi riverboat that dropped him in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Taken in by an African American farm family, Taylor attended a private school and eventually rose to prominence as the owner and editor of a labor newspaper and as a vocal leader in Wisconsin’s People’s Party. At a time when many African Americans felt allegiance to the Republican Party for its support of abolition, Taylor’s sympathy with the labor cause drew him first to the national Democratic Party and then to an African American party, the newly formed National Liberty Party, which in 1904 named him its presidential candidate.

Who do you admire in the history African Women and Man of Earth?
I dont know much about Black History so for me this information instills pride in a people.
Descendants of former African enslaved people needs to know that history to restore that pride. With pride come respect and honor. When you don’t know who you are and where you come will leave you open to except distorted facts about who you are. It is important you know where you can from so you know where you are going.
Seeking more knowledge reduces the amount of self-hatred within the people the share my features. Stacey Dash recently let black folks know she is with white folks in destroying who she is mainly coz they are paying her.
For the month of February, in order to bring back True Black Power / True Africa Pride for the Month of February my show will be devoted to Nationhood and our Elders that pushed this message from Marcus Gravy. We must refine the message for today and still push for Nationhood today!
Happy Black History Month: Is BHM Still Relevant to America? The Tim Black At Night Show 2/1/16 - Call in 323-870-4064 Tim Black At Night Show airs everyday 9P Est.Tune In! http://www.TimBlackTV.com
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.
Tonight I will start off Black History month by talking about some of our not much talked about events,heroes and places.Who owns Black history?Why is Fox News Hell bent on demonizing it?We complain that it is not enough,but to many White people it is racist and should be ablolished.What have we gotten ourselves into?Steve Harvey said"I dont care about slavery"How many Jews will say the same about the Holocaust?Why are race traitors so elevated?Who rewards them?What is the history of the race traitor?We are finally getting people bold enought to take on projects like Nat Turner and Marcus Garvey.Why are so many of our stories untold?Is the Kalagenesis the only man who has no respect for celebrities?Why do we let them get on TV and speak on issues they could give a damn about?I am fired up tonight speaking off cuff no notes from the heart.........in Kalaland
The creation & purpose of BLACK HISTORY MONTH is not widely known so lets have a little history lesson on the creation & purpose of Black History Month so that we are better educated on the importance of learning black history year around AND so that way we all get excited about participating in BHM
in The Bible
Many Blacks/People of Color in America grew up without any knowledge of who we really are. No race on Earth history started 400 or so years ago. Some like to make this our starting point. Anything past the 400, we thought, was even more embarrassing than the slavery history we must deal with. Only, it was all one big lie. A nightmarish tale told to keep us from the knowledge of our true history...our glorious and tragic past. Heavenly Father told daddy Abraham ... 'Know for sure, your children will be enslaved and mistreated for 400 years in a land that is not their's." And so, we have come to the end of that 400 years. And, it is time for us to awake from our lost memory.
We will discuss our precious Black Bible history along with various secular history books. We will explore Biblical, historical and scientific evidence to prove Black people in America... once known as the "people of the Book" (Bible)... are the true children of Israel, the grandchildren of daddy Abraham. I hope you will come along and travel with us through the exciting pages and doors of time. We are sure to receive a a great awakening of our minds with the real knowledge of us.
Though this vital Black Bible history will be our main theme, we will also focus on many other issues that affects the Black community, as our survival is daily challenged.
