    Lincoln MKX Presents HISTORY: Carolyn Maull McKinstry

    in History

    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."

    Sons of Lincoln Live

    in Politics

    EXPOSING POLITICAL TRUTHS AND REDEFINING CONSERVATISM. The Sons of Lincoln believe the United States is heading down a very dangerous path. Our culture is rotting, our economy is breaking, national debt is through the roof, radical Islam is at war with us and we are navigating down a road to socialism. We have a deep love for our country, and are loyal to the framework of the constitution. We value our natural born freedoms and are not willing to sit on the sidelines and watch them deteriorate. You, like us, are upset with the leadership being vetted and put into our nations White House. With the 58th quadrennial Presidential election coming in November of 2016, the time to stand up is now. The time for whispers in our personal circles has come to an end. We are on the threshold of a revolution. Whether we do something or not this country is on the brink of change. Tune in and listen to Russ Fine, Rob North and Bernie North discuss the most important issues facing America.

    Lincoln MKX Presents MOVIES: 'Red Tails' Star Marcus Paulk

    in History

    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."

    Focus Hollywood: 150th Anniversary of the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln

    in Movies

    For this episode of A Reel Point Of View, we'll be having a general discussion about the state of films regarding Abraham Lincoln and his assassination. Focusing on how films have treated the man Abraham Lincoln and how films have treated the assassination; and their quality (or the absence of such films). While in our examination, not failing to mention notable films like "The Conspirator", or "Young Abraham Lincoln" and Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" or even "Birth of a Nation"; we'll also attempt to talk about how film treatments of Lincoln have changed over the history of film, i.e. improvements, shortcomings, etc., and maybe what we'd like to see in any future films about Lincoln.

    History Today

    in News

    On this edition of History Today, host Paul Angel, the managing editor of The Barnes Review history magazine, will be discussing the worst maritime disaster in American history—yet one very few people know about. Even more interesting, the blame for this shocking loss of life—more than were lost on the Titanic—can be squarely laid at the feet of Abraham Lincoln. Find out more about the Sultana disaster and how a number of tragic factors converged to take the lives of nearly 1,700 Union prisoners of war and innocent civilians on the Mississippi River at the close of the Civil War.


    We will also be wrapping up our discussion of the Gobekli Tepe temple site in Anatolia—the discovery of which has literally doubled the history of man and thrown the "Semito-centric" historical establishment into a tizzy.


    With Paul will be his partner in historical crime, Dave Gahary, the host of “Who’s the Bad Guy?”
