The Gist of Freedom www.BlackHistoryUniversity.com is pleased to present to you the audio book of Harriet Jacobs, an African American abolitionist! Mrs. Jacobs became active in the antislavery movement, and at the urging of several female abolitionists, she wrote “Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl,” which was published in 1860. Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, is a powerful depiction of the sexual abuse of female slaves.
Harriet Jacobs would thwart repeated sexual advancements made by slavers for years, then escape to the North. She would later publish an account of her anguished life in her autobiography, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl.
Harriet had previously asked Norcom for permission to marry a free black man. Norcom had violently refused. Now Harriet had a plan to disrupt his fight for sexual conquest: She had become friends with a caring white man -- an unmarried lawyer. She would become sexually involved with this man, become pregnant, and an infuriated Norcom would sell her and her child.
A child was conceived. The harassment continued even after she bore the lawyer another child. Finally, after she learned that Norcom was preparing to put her children to work as plantation slaves, she had had enough. In June of 1835, after seven years of mistreatment, Harriet escaped.
Harriet was actively involved with the abolition movement before the launch of the Civil War. During the war she used her celebrity to raise money for black refugees. After the war she worked to improve the conditions of the recently-freed slaves.

The post Podcast 411 – New Audio Book – The Chieftain 2021 appeared first on The Bob Davis Podcasts.
Resolutions & Return of the Light is the next installment in the Goddess Calling: Inspirational Messages and Meditations audio book series. Listeners said they wanted to hear more from the hostess of the show, Karen Tate. They said they'd like to be able to "listen" to her book when they're multi-tasking rather than have to sit down and read it - so now you're getting your wish. We have a dozen audio messages & meditations "in the can" and they'll be released every 3-4 weeks to fill much of 2016. Resolutions and Return of the Light is intended for the early part of the year, during the time of Winter Solstice, Candlemas, and Brigit as as we begin to awake from our slumber and gestation in the darkness and start to think about the potential of the new year, life, renewing ourselves once again and the coming light.
Tonight at 8pm ET Audio Book, Listen to A Reading of Frederick Douglass' Autobiography ~ Mr. Douglass shares his Courageous Escape on The Gist of Freedom www.BlackHistoryBlog.com

"It was the custom in the State of Maryland to require the free colored people to have what were called free papers. These instruments they were required to renew very often, and by charging a fee for this writing, considerable sums from time to time were collected by the State. In these papers the name, age, color, height, and form of the freeman were described, together with any scars or other marks upon his person which could assist in his identification. This device in some measure defeated itself-since more than one man could be found to answer the same general description. Hence many slaves could escape by personating the owner of one set of papers; and this was often done as follows: A slave, nearly or sufficiently answering the description set forth in the papers, would borrow or hire them them till by means of them he could escape to a free State, and then, by mail or otherwise, would return them to the owner. The operation was a hazardous one for the lender as well as for the borrower. A failure on the part of the fugitive to send back the papers would imperil his benefactor, and the discovery of the papers in possession of the wrong man would imperil both the fugitive and his friend."
Audio Book Henry Bibb, Part 2 self-liberated newspaper founder, The Voice!
Author and Newspaper Owner, Henry Bibb a self-liberated black man gained his freedom in 1837. However he returned to Kentucky to try and rescue his wife and daughter. On the first attempt, he was recaptured and his whole family was sold south to a Mississippi plantation owner.
They escaped together, but were set upon by wolves and recaptured. Henry managed to get away again, but despite all his efforts, could not free his beloved Malinda and their little girl, Frances.
Henry Bibb became an eloquent lecturer, author and community organizer. http://bit.ly/HenryBibb_LoveAds
In September 1851, as a result of the new Fugitive Slave Law, Mr. Bibb called a conference to be held in Toronto to discuss whether or not Canada was the best place for African Americans to seek freedom.
More than 50 delegates came to the North American Convention, also called “The Convention of Coloured Freemen.”
Henry and Mary also started a newspaper, The Voice of the Fugitive, in January, 1851. The Voice of the Fugitive was the first anti-slavery paper published in Canada by people of African descent. It was a very important means of communicating with Underground Railroad supporters, and with the general public.
Mr. Bibb's autobiography, Narrative of the Life and Adventures of Henry Bibb, An American Slave publicized the horrors of slavery. It was published in 1849 and became very popular reading, helping to further the cause of anti-slavery in North America and even in Europe.
Enjoy this reading from my newest book, Goddess Calling, called Separating Truth from Myth, inspired by stories, old wives tales and urban legends that become accepted as truths. With another Thanksgiving behind us and the holiday of Christmas just ahead, both times when history is distorted by "fairy tales," consider this sacred message for inspiration and insight - by Karen Tate.
