SORT BY Relevancy
Join author, lecturer, television and radio host Antoinette Harrell for a discussion of her new book The Department of Justice - Slavery, Involuntary Servitude and Peonage.
The 13th Amendment to the Constitution outlawed slavery and certain forms of involuntary servitude. The Department of Justice files contain complaints made by persons (victims) who were being held against their will or forced to work off debts through threats and intimidation by employers or others. Most of the victims were negroes who were beaten to return to former employers to work off their debts. These files contain correspondences, memorandums, telegrams, newspapers clippings, transcripts or testimonies, FBI reports of investigation and indictments.

One of the accusations post-moderns make against God is that He cannot be just because the Bible does not condemn slavery. Mark examines the biblical position on this issue and makes the point that God's view on the subject soars beyond the simplisitc "are you for it or against it' answers our present unthoughtful culture too often demands. This audio will challenge the pre-conceptions of believers and thoughtful doubters alike,
WARNING!!!!! This show is not meant for everybody. Tune in as Mikial New Bey and Don Blake Jr. discuss how present health conditions and toxic lifestyles are linked to slavery.

Tonight in Luqman Nation, we're going to talk about reparations for slavery. Touchy topic, but one that has arisen again with renewed fervor. We'll touch on the history of reparations paid to other groups in this country, the history of reparations for slavery specifically in this country, and some of the current attitudes on the subject.
We'll also talk about what you might have missed this week in the news, and we might even have a little bedtime story with a special guest.
We'd love to hear from you!
Jews played a significant role in the slave trade in the United States. The Nation of Islam uncovered documents showing Jews built massive cotton marketing businesses, owning thousands of acres of plantations. Indeed, much of the slave-picked cotton produced in the Mississippi Delta region was marketed internationally by Jewish merchants. Indisputably, Blacks picked the cotton. Jews simultaneously established their dominance in the needle trades or textiles industry, the banking industry, as well as a significant—even if little known—role in the formation of labor unions, which allowed them to exercise control over jobs and contracts.
As a matter of fact, two great books detailing the Jewish involvement in slavery in the U.S., was written and published by the Nation of Islam, under the leadership of the Great Minister Louis Farrakhan. Per the FinalCall.com "Published in 1991, The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Volume One, set off ideological tremors resulting in denunciations, and chaotic scrambles into the archives of Jewish historical literature by those hoping to debunk its claims. They were unsuccessful, and quietly, the assertions that Jews were merely co-sufferers or innocent bystanders in the trans-Atlantic slave trade have been silenced. The Nation of Islam's Historical Research Department has followed up with the highly anticipated Volume 2 in a series of scholarly volumes, this one under the subtitle How Jews Gained Control of the Black American Economy."

You have many people in the world who put no stock in the bible. They also like to run to the bible to prove that it supports slavery and justifies the actions of the Slave owners. Well we will look into the bible and see if these claims are true.

Joseph was given a dream that he would rule over his brothers. His brothers resented him for this, and they sold him into slavery, after stealing his coat and throwing him into a ditch. Having suffered as a slave for some time, the pharoh found favor in Joseph, and put him in charge of many people, including his brothers. Rather than being wrathful against his brothers for selling him into slavery, he saw the goodness of God’s hand at work, instead of the evil of his brother’s actions.
The moral of the story is: When God gives you rotten grapes, make wine!
Rose Rodriguez gave birth to a baby boy, who lived 4 hours and then died. Rose then gave birth to a baby girl, who was born with a brain tumor so large it took up 85% of her cranium. The surgeon told Rose that there was nothing that could be done, and her daughter would surely die. Rose pleaded with the surgeon, who was also a mother, and the surgeon agreed to operate. After over 90 different procedures, the baby girl is now 11 years old, and she is the sweetest child ever. During one of the surgical procedures, the girl died on the operating table. When she miraculously came back to life and woke up, she told a story of an experience she had in heaven where she met her brother, who she had never known, nor had she ever been told had been born, as the boy died 4 hours after birth, years prior to her own birth. Rose was raised in an abusive household, with an alcoholic for a father. She has been through more in her life than most could imagine, and yet she has maintained faith in God. She is a very inspiring person, and her life story has a moral: When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!
"History cannot be reversed and this review of the circumstances of the slavery of the African in America was not intended to be the completion of this analysis. The 300-year captivity of Africans in America is an indisputable fact which to many have sought to deny as relevant to anything more than an event of the past. Our formulation suggested that the blemish of these inhumane conditions persists as a kind of post-traumatic stress syndrome on the collective mind of Africans in America and through its original cause cannot be altered, the genesis can be understood. As is accepted in most insight approaches to mental healing (called psychotherapy), a confrontation of the original trauma and a restructuring of the mind's faulty adaptations to the assult can serve to correct these distrubed patterns of responding. The book was intended to offer insight into what had been collectively denied by the entire society as having any relevance to the psychological functioning of African-American people. With this insight, we believed that internal healing could begin"..
"We are convinced that recognizing the origin and the self-healing process which we as a people must engage in both individually and collectively." The political, economic, military and even intellectual struggles have been fought and won to the point that we can expect solutions from those arenas. We must now understand that any future process in those arenas or in any other arena of human activity can only occur when we have been properly liberated in our minds.
I am very greatful to my family, to our Ancestors and to the God of the universe for their presence and work through my life.
