    SLAVE THEN, SLAVE NOW! [Setting The Tone Radio LIVE]

    in Culture

    Before American slavery abolotion, the total slave population south of the Mason-Dixon line was somewhere in the likes of FOUR MILLION predominately black people. The US government instituted chattel slavery and made BILLIONS OF DOLLARS from free slave labor. The tactics used by slave owners left Black Americans and other minorities stripped of their native tongues, religion and culture. We were killed if we became literate and were taught to hate each other simply because of skin complexion.


    Today, Black Americans are subjected to a NEW form of slavery. Many feel that the effects of slavery in the 18th and 19th century are still felt today. We were slaves then and we are slaves now; just this time it seems irreversible, right? Or are blacks in a much better position? Have we gained strides in America? This episode, we discuss the effects of slavery on Black Americans today, if any.

    Wanda's Picks Radio Show

    in Art

    This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forbearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

    Who funded the African American slave trade?

    in Culture

    For well over 300 years, European countries forced Africans onto slave ships and transported them across the Atlantic Ocean. 


    The first European nation to engage in the Transatlantic Slave Trade was Portugal in the mid to late 1400's. Captain John Hawkins made the first known English slaving voyage to Africa, in 1562, in the reign of Elizabeth 1. Hawkins made three such journeys over a period of six years. He captured over 1200 Africans and sold them as goods in the Spanish colonies in the Americas.  But there is more to this complex story join us as we dialogue on this subject and much more

    Are You Suffering From Slave Mentality Syndrome? Guest Dr. Dorothy Thomas

    in Self Help

    "Ooooh, gurrrl, he got that good hair!" "Dang, she fine with those green eyes and light skin." "What's up, my n***a?" "That's my ride or die b****!" These are only a few examples of the things we say to each other and unfortunately, these phrases have been passed down to generation to generation. Some people who use these phrases may think they're taking a negative term and making it positive, but in reality, they're negatively impacting themselves and those around them. How can you possibly love yourself, love others, and accomplish your dreams if you use negative terms to refer to yourselves and other people? It's time to remove those shackles and stop placing limitations on yourselves.
