AUDIO BOOK READING chp 4 BREAKING THE CHAINS, WM.L.KATZ
Jenny Smith Fletcher was the daughter of W. H. Smith, founder of Nicodemus. She was the first postmistress and schoolteacher in Nicodemus, Kansas. She was also one of the original charter members of the A.M.E. Church.
Formerly enslaved African Americans left Kentucky in organized colonies to experience freedom in the "promised land" of Kansas. Nicodemus represents the involvement of African Americans in the westward expansion and settlement of the Great Plains. It is the oldest and only remaining Black settlement west of the Mississippi River.

AUDIO BOOK READING - BREAKING THE CHAINS, Week 4 Chapter 4 Resistance
Although slave revolts constituted the most dramatic form of slave resistance, they were by no means the only method of reprisal. Arson proved to be an exceptionally effective and consequently frequent form of retaliation. In 1795, slave-set fires in Charleston, South Carolina, prompted the governor to declare a day of fasting. More arson there in 1804 resulted in the destruction of six ships and hundreds of homes. The problem of arson was so widespread that, in 1820, the American Fire Insurance Company of Philadelphia stopped issuing policies in the South.
Assaults and attempts at assassination were also common. In 1740, accusations that slaves were attempting to poison New York City's water supply resulted in widespread arrests and executions. Poison attempts were so frequent they were even referred to in the lyrics of at least one slave song. Vandalism and destruction of crops were also regular occurrences.

“In his Breaking The Chains, which earned the Carter G. Woodson award, Katz chronicles how resistance by Africans marked the era of slavery. It shows how slaves battled for dignity and liberty in fields, cities, through education and religion, by joining maroon colonies, by staging revolts or fleeing on the Underground Railroad. Katz shows how slaves transformed the Civil War into a battle for freedom and brought about the Union victory. “This book will force many readers to reexamine their assumptions about American history… Young readers will be fascinated and better informed for having experienced this book,” wrote School Library Journal. Striking photographs highlight this unknown heritage.”

"Breaking The Chains: African-American Slave Resistance"
“The compelling, provocative story of the resistance and courage of African slaves in their never-ending struggle for freedom…important history.” — USA Today
The first freedom paths taken by runaway slaves led to Native American villages. There black men and women found a red hand of friendship and an accepting adoption system and culture. The sturdy offspring of Black-Indian marriages shaped the early days of the fur trade, added a new dimension to frontier diplomacy, and made a daring contribution to the fight for American liberty. Early Florida history was determined by a powerfull alliance that fought the U.S. Army, Navy and Marines to a standstill for forty years.
Like other intrepid frontier people, these dark Americans braved every peril for a slice of the American Dream—freedom, a safe home, family happiness and a piece of one’s own land. In the chronicles of the Americas their long, arduous quest for freedom is still a neglected chapter.
Through careful research and rare antique prints and photographs, this book reveals how black and red people learned to live and work together in the Americas to oppose white oppression. Here is an American story that reveals a little-known aspect of our past and shatters some myths.
“This book will force many readers to reexamine their assumptions about American history… Young readers will be fascinated and better informed for having experienced this book,” wrote School Library Journal. Striking photographs highlight this unknown heritage.”

Join The Gist of Freedom with host ILYASAH SHABAZZ, (Malcolm X's daughter) and Historian Yule Anderson a Fort Mose preservationist, as we continue our audio book reading of Breaking The Chains by William L. Katz. This week we read about Slave Revolts, from chapter Nine!
After a long, hard year of talking about New York Mets baseball, Jeffrey decided to get himself an early Christmas present and commandeered the podcast to talk about a few of his favorite things. Fortunately one of those things *is* still Mets baseball (for now), and with the recent Troy Tulowitzki rumors it seemed only logical that Steve Schreiber, president of the Tulo Fan Club, would join the show. After that it's pro wrestling talk with Steve Sypa, a lengthy discussion of The Mountain Goats oevure with baseball writer (and angry Oriole bird) Jonathan Bernhardt, we drink some bourbon and chat about it with bartender Robert Juall, and wrap up a very long podcast on a very late night discussing Sheffield Wednesday with fellow New York Owl, Mark Hugo. There's a prize if you make it to the very end, but absolutely no one will hold it against you if you don't. Cheers!
in The Bible
“God is not just in the church; He is also in technology.” Our mission is to “empower people spiritually, develop them educationally, expose them culturally, activate them politically, and strengthen them economically.”
We pray that God will enabled you to further open your eyes and ears to Gods' word through. We will start with the book of Genesis which means "In the Beginning" and close with the book of Revelation, the Greek word meaning "Divine Revelation".
In Mark 13, Jesus warns us to ready our self, pray and watch because no one, not even he, knows when the end time will come. "Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is (Mark 13:33). Mark 13:23 But take ye heed: behold, I foretold you all thing. Have you not read?
“Walking with God is to stand where God stands, and to fight for whom God fights: the poor, the weak, the powerless and the defenseless. Walking with God is to have the courage to know that fear and trepidation before the might of the powerful is overturned by the fear of the Lord! Walking with God is to understand, without doubt or equivocation that justice is what Yahweh requires
