If you only know the name of a grandparent, then how do you go back three or four generations to find their slave ancestors?
Konnetta Alexander shares touching stories of finding her slave ancestors going back three and four generations. With inspiration from journal entries of an Antebellum, slave account book written by slaveholder Daniel Graham, the lives of unrelated slaves provides documentation of slave life from which Konnetta uses as her guidebook to find and document slaves. While making national presentations about the life of Matila Graham, house slave, Konnetta tells the story of every house slave! Calling out the last names of her slave ancestors: Clark, Miller, Moorman, Peay, Prince, Quinn and Ramsey. Join in as discoveries unfold in Finding Our Slaves.
With 20+ years of genealogy digging, Konnetta has three projects: researching family, transcribing and making public excerpts of the slave journal, and performing interpretative presentations about the lives of Free Persons of Color and Slaves. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, is an annual participant of MAAGI (Mid-Western African American Genealogy Institute), and member of several historical societies. The focus of Konnetta’s genealogy research is finding, documenting and personalizing slaves, whether family nor not.

The first 19 or so Africans arrived ashore near the English colony of Jamestown, Virginia, in 1619, brought by Dutch traders who had seized them from a captured Spanish slave ship. The Spanish usually baptized slaves in Africa before embarking them. As English law considered baptized Christians exempt from slavery, these Africans were treated as indentured servants who joined about 1,000 English indentured servants already in the colony. They were freed after a prescribed period and given the use of land and supplies by their former masters. The historian Ira Berlin noted that what he called the "charter generation" was sometimes made up of mixed-race men who were indentured servants, and whose ancestry was African and Iberian. They were descendants of African women and Portuguese and Spanish men who worked in African ports as traders or facilitators in the slave trade. For example, like Anthony Johnson, who arrived in 1621 as an indentured servant, some Africans achieved freedom and became property owners. The transformation of the status of Africans from indentured servitude to slavery—whereby they could never leave—happened gradually.
This week, we are going to talk about Slavery. Subject: The Proliferation of SLAVES suggested by Curtis B Scruggs. Slavery is one of the U.S.'s stains in history. All the American Black man has gone through. Are we still slaves to a certain degree?
And here's a good question... or questions. Are there people who wish slaves still exist? Are there people who don't believe slaves ever were? The slave traffic lessen the pain of Black slavery, or eliminate that it happened?

Welcome to the Seriouside of the jril show. This morning we will be discussing the following topics:
SEGMENT 1: FRESH MEAT-HUMAN TRAFFICKING
Slavery doesn't just occur in history books. Slavery happens every day in our own communities. Human trafficking is the second largest criminal industry in the country.
SEGMENT 2: AND THE CIRCUS CONTINUES
The Republicans continue to waste time and taxpayer’s money. The latest? The House of Representatives has approved a measure to sue the president. SMH, we will discuss.
SEGMENT 3: DOMESTIC VIOLENCE…..AGAINST MEN?
Financially restricted, subjected to irrational jealousy and suspicions of infidelity, verbal attacks, and humiliating or demeaning comments all add up to abuse, irrespective of the gender of the perpetrator or the recipient. Is there a difference between domestic & self defense?
This week we will be able to listen to an interview with the author of "40 Million Dollar Slaves," William C. Rhoden as well as a in-class discussion with Bomani Jones about Rhoden's book and the modern day plantation system that is professional sports.
It is known that many of the Africans who were kidnapped and brought to these lands were Muslims. Dr. Y. N. Kly, may Allah have Mercy on him, reiterates a question posed to El Hajj Malik El Shabazz (Malcolm X) that is relevant to establish a point:
“Does anyone know where the enslaved Africans came from in Africa? Yes. The African states as defined today are not the same as they were during the pre-colonial era. There were pre-colonial empires, not nation states. Thus both German and French anthropologists have determined that the vast majority of Africans sent to the U.S. came from areas that were once included in the Ghana, Mali and Songhay empires of Africa.”
It is well-known by historians that these three empires have been Muslim polities since the 11th century (Christian era). What has not been acknowledged as of yet, by the mainstream, is the fact that African-American Muslims are part of a continuous and unbroken chain of Islam; beginning with Prophet Muhammad's, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, contact with the Africans. The link between the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, the African Muslims of the past and the African-American Muslims of today are the Muslim slaves who were kidnapped and brought to this land.
Thiss lecture called "What did the Slaves Believe?" will be discussing the 'aqeedah (belief system) of these Muslims.
