The Slaves Have Names: Ancestors of my Home tells the stories of the people who were enslaved on the plantation where Cumbo-Floyd was raised in Central Virginia. It’s the story of her journey to get to know these extraordinary people and to understand her debt to them as well as our nation’s continued struggles around race and the legacy of slavery.
Andi Cumbo-Floyd is a writer, historian, and genealogist who focuses on the history and legacy of slavery in the United States. She lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, where she and her husband run a small farm with goats, chickens, and big, fluffy dogs.
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?
The people here on the JKN want to wish you all a HAPPY MOTHERS DAY -
To call in? 347-205-9366 - right here on the JKN.

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.
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.
In recent weeks, social media has been in a frenzy over the Clippers owner Donald Sterling and his mistress' tape, which revealed his disdain for her public friendships with Black men. Later, many African Americans, and even people outside of the race, took to social networks with complaints of the Clippers players response to Sterling's comments, deeming it as lack luster and simply "not enough." Do you think the Clippers Players should have done more in their protest efforts against Sterling and the Clippers organization? How responsible are African Americans NOW in times of racist plight and injustice? Are WE doing enough?...Please join us as we discuss 'New Age Slaves or Modern Day Revolutionaries?'
The Sterling rant by Clippers owner wasnt the most disturbing part of the whole situation. The fact that hes dating a black/mexican woman yet he doesnt want any involvement with "black people", speaks volumes concerning his views of her. Is she nothing more then sex slave for him. especially considering ,he views black people as nothing more then people to use for his ability to live his expensive lifestyle. he has to view her in the same manner. Its sad that she resorts to sex with him as a way to provide her own lifestyle of the rich and famous. Maybe im wrong but i dont think so, and this is a big gurl pill we must all swallow. Truth is truth. Also Jada Pinketts outreach to the strippers in Atlanta presents more proof of this theory. Sex slaves as black women is anciet history but the GLAMOUR of the lifestyle is repulsive! join us Sunday at 10 pm for the TABOO TALK.
We will be discussing name brand clothing, and if designer brands have a hold on our community (both Black and LGBT) How important these brands are to us? Does it really matter? Why do people feel like we are slaves to brand names?
Slaves in the Family with Edward Ball
If you knew that you were a descendant of a slave- owner, would you tell anyone?
If you had an opportunity to apologize to descendants of those enslaved by your family, would you?
Edward Ball is a writer of narrative nonfiction and the author of five books, including The Inventor and the Tycoon (Doubleday, 2013), about the birth of moving pictures. The book tells the story of Edward Muybridge, the pioneering 19-century photographer (and admitted murderer), and Leland Stanford, the Western railroad baron, whose partnership, in California during the 1870s, gave rise to the visual media.
Edward Ball’s first book, Slaves in the Family (1998), told the story of his family’s history as slave-owners in South Carolina, and of the families they once enslaved. Slaves in the Family won the National Book Award for nonfiction, was a New York Times bestseller, was translated into five languages, and was featured on Oprah.
Edward Ball was born in Savannah, raised in Louisiana and South Carolina, and graduated from Brown University in 1982. He worked for ten years as freelance journalist in New York, writing about art and film, and becoming a columnist for The Village Voice.
His other books, all nonfiction, include The Sweet Hell Inside (2001), the story of an African-American family that rose from the ashes of the Civil War to build lives in music and in art during the Jazz Age; Peninsula of Lies (2004), the story of English writer Gordon Hall, who underwent one of the first sex reassignments—in the South during the 1960s—creating an outrage; and The Genetic Strand, about the process of using DNA to investigate family history.
Edward Ball lives in Connecticut and teaches at Yale University.
