Maurice A. Barboza is the founder and CEO of National Mall Liberty Fund DC, a non-profit authorized by Public Law 112-239 to establish a memorial to African American contributions to liberty during the Revolutionary War. In September 2014, Public Law 113-176 made the National Liberty Memorial eligible for a site in Washington's Monumental Core. He said, "this memorial will remind Americans that it was their vision for America that prevailed."
Mr. Barboza has written opinion pieces and spoken extensively about the 30-year quest to construct the memorial and his aunt's trail-blazing battle in the mid-1980s for membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution. A 2013 book, "Sacrificing Soldiers on the National Mall," by Kristin Haas, and a recent article in the Washington Post, "After 30 years, a site for memorial," by Tom Jackman, tell the story.

Maurice Bishop, a powerful, spoken word Poet currently serving in the United States Army, was raised in South Philly. Witnessing the death of his best friend in a drive-by and being kicked out of his parents’home made him realize he needed to change his lifestyle. He began transforming his thoughts and feelings on paper into poetry. He joined the Army in 2006, and traveled the states performing his poetry at Drexel University, World Live Café,YMCARecreation Center,The Free Library of Philadelphia at the Youth PoetrySlam (2006 Semi-Finalist), The Memorial Hall Talent Show and the Talil Chapel Christmas Concert while deployed in Iraq, and various churches in his community. In 2009, he released his first Poetic Muse, Blood on Paper.
That same year,he encountered a great loss when he learned his son died of a Heart Murmur. Later, he learned of a fellow soldier,who was suffering from PTSD, committed suicide. These experiences took its toll, and Maurice began having nightmares,intense mood swings, and as a result began drinking heavily. He later found out he was also uffering from PTSD.
With all his struggles and experiences in life,he continued to write heartfelt poetry, and feels it’s his duty to do the will of God by traveling the states educating, informing, and inspiring God’s people through spoken word. Bishop accredits his healing to his Devotion and Prayer to serving God, and the unconditional love from his beautiful wife.
What role did the Irish play in the Transatlantic slave trade? Were the Irish ever enslaved or slave owners?
Join my special guest, Dr. Maurice Gleeson for a compelling overview of Ireland and the Slave Trade.
Dr. Maurice Gleeson is a psychiatrist from Dublin who works in London as a pharmaceutical physician. He is an avid genealogist and has traced his Irish family tree back to about 1800 on half of his ancestral lines. Using DNA, he was able to get back into the 1600's on one line, and this inspired his interest in Ireland's involvement with the Transatlantic Slave Trade.
