Tonight on The Gist of Freedom listen to excerpts from the autobiography of Olaudah Equiano, a survivor of the middle passage! www.BlackHistoryBLOG.com
--Survived The Middle Passage, purchased his freedom, became a black abolitionist and authored the first known Enslaved African Narrative . He was a famous proponent of British abolitionism and worked with William Wilberforce. His story is featured in the movie Amazing Grace.
He settled in the United Kingdom in 1792. His autobiography, "The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano", depicts the horrors of slavery and influenced the enactment of the Slave Trade Act of 1807.
They put us in separate parcels, and examined us attentively. They also made us jump, and pointed to the land, signifying we were to go there. We thought by this, we should be eaten by these ugly men, as they appeared to us; and, when soon after we were all put down under the deck again, there was much dread and trembling among us, and nothing but bitter cries to be heard all the night from these apprehensions, insomuch, that at last the white people got some old slaves from the land to pacify us. They told us we were not to be eaten, but to work, and were soon to go on land, where we should see many of our country people. This report eased us much. And sure enough, soon after we were landed, there came to us Africans of all languages.
Please Join The Gist of Freedom as we welcome Adam Tulloch from Great Britian's Production of the play ‘Olaudah Equiano, The Enslaved African’
Olaudah Equiano Survived The Middle Passage, purchased his freedom, became a black abolitionist and authored the first known Enslaved African Narrative . He was a famous proponent of British abolitionism and worked with William Wilberforce. His story is featured in the movie Amazing Grace.
Following its success at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, ‘Olaudah Equiano, The Enslaved African’ will be transferring to Sutton House from the 26th-29th November.
Kidnapped with his sister at the age of eleven, Equiano is beaten, suffocated and tortured on their journey to the coast, which sees him separated from his sister and sold to British traders.
Set in the heart of West Africa during the height of the British slave trade, ‘Olaudah Equiano, The Enslaved African’ is an honest, uncompromising and moving portrayal of Olaudah Equiano’s early life.
Please note this is a site-specific production with no wheelchair access. The production also contains scenes of a violent nature and is therefore only suitable for those over the age of 16.

God is in the Middle of your Suffering. He has already made a way for you
Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. (1 Corinthians 15:58)
We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us. (1 Corinthians 2:12)
Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6)
For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose. (Philippians 2:13)
But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body. (Philippians 3:20-21)

General Paul E Vallely joins Joe to discuss the recent FAILURES in the Middle East!
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
Monday Night Show!
