History Meets Hip-Hop host Syreeta Gates, who can also be heard weekly on New York's WBAI public radio, pays homage to Black History Month via its founder, Carter G. Woodson—and his slew of equally accomplished namesakes. "Godwyn, Dwayne, Betty, Bunchie and Shawn. What do they have in common?" she asks before launcing into the infectious Lil' Wayne track Mr. Carter. "As Kanye West said, 'I make black history every day. I don't need a month.' And we don't. But we are still appreciative," she adds. "What bridges hip-hop for me are four people in three generations: My grandmother, born in 1926, as part of the great migration from North Carolina landed in Harlem. My mother was born in 1950, in the era of the Black Panters, Young Lords and Motown sound. And then my uncles, born in the late 60s, grew up in the 80s—the real hip-hop era."
African American Conservatives host Marie Stroughter goes one on one with Carolyn Maull McKinstry, eyewitness to the 1963 Ku Klux Klan perpetrated 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, Ala., which claimed the lives of four of her fellow paritioners: Addie Mae Collins, 14, Denise McNair, 11, Carole Robertson, 14, and Cynthia Wesley, 14. "It was just an ordinary Sunday. What were excited that it was Youth Sunday, which meant we were in charge of every aspect of church that day, from reading the scripture, to reading announcements to bringing the morning message," says the civil-rights activist, whose 2011 memoir, While the World Watched: A Birmingham Bombing Survivor Comes of Age during the Civil Rights Movement, recounts the horrific event. "There were two things on my mind that morning: That I was the Sunday school secretary, and I really was proud of having that job, because I was only in the seventh grade. And the second thing was that Cynthia's father was my elementary school principal, and Cynthia and I were in a social club together. We'd visit at each other's homes and drink punch and play records and just laugh and act silly as girls do. But that week, we'd placed an add in the Birmingham World newspaper announcing that the Cavalettes Club would meet Sept. 15. And then it gave you the names of the girls in the club, but it also said don't forget to bring your $3—we were ordering caps and T-shirts for everybody. So I was excited when I went to church that morning. Then all I remember after the bombing was that I went from dancing on tiptoes to just numb that evening and night and on into the week."
Film Festival Radio host Janice Malone delves into the budding career of Marcus Paulk, who plays David 'Deke' Watkins in George Lucas' WWII flick Red Tails, which tells the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African American military aviators in US history. "We shot this film in Prague, Czech Republic, for about three and a half months. The day after we got there, after one night of sleep, we hopped in a van at the crack of dawn and went to boot camp for about a week and a half—military training, marching, nine-mile hikes in the mud with packs on, building tents blindfolded," says the Moesha cast member. "Working with George Lucas, you could only expect that it was going to be intense. So we didn't know exactly what to expect. But we got to go up in a P-51 fighter plane before we actually shot the film. When I did that it was like, Wow this is something I've never had to do for a role. It was better than any roller-coaster you've ever been on."

"We have remonstrated, supplicated, demonstrated, and prostrated ourselves before the feet of our self-appointed administrators. We have done all that we can do to circumvent the eruption that now comes on apace. The point of no return in our relationship has long been passed. I know what must and will take place so I follow my ends through to their most glorious conclusion. Don't make me waste my time and energy winning you to a position that you should already support with all your sympathies. The same forces that have made your life miserable, the same forces that have made your life senseless and unrewarding, threaten me and all our posterity. I know the way out. If you cannot help, sit back and listen, watch. You are charged with the responsibility of acknowledging the truth, my friend, and supporting it with whatever means, no matter how humble, are in your power. I am charged to right the wrong, lift the burden from the backs of future generations. I will not shrink from my duties. I will never falter or waver before the task, but we will go forward — to resolve this conflict once and forever. Of all the twenty thousand known years of advanced civilization, the years that are now coming on will be the most momentous."

You don't want to miss this one! Stay Scared!
When thinking about the history of slavery one tends to think about the abolitionist movement. Generally speaking when we thing about this movement we tend to think about the Quakers and their impact in the USA and perhaps beyond and rightly so.
While it’s true the Quakers did much toward ending slavery I content the abolitionist movement started about the time Jesus of Nazareth ascended into Heaven. Paul’s Epistle to Timothy clearly illustrates the picture of a disdain for owning a human being. Paul explains whey we have the law;
“the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for murderers, for the sexually immoral, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine that conforms to the gospel. (I paraphrase).
This then becomes a clarion call to the world actually that slavery was an abomination to God. That as Christians we can not abide by a person owning another person. This of course was taken seriously by both believers and non believers alike. To the non believer who owned slaves he saw an enemy of his enterprises. To the believer they came to truly understand what Paul meant when he said;
In speaking to the Athenians, Paul stated that God "has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings" (Acts 17:26). We are all descendants of Adam. While we are divided between different nations and languages, we are all the same -- human beings created by the hand of God.
