I have a message for Black America. In light of this month being designated Black History Month, I feel this would be an opportune time to bring the message and see what resolves we come to, as a people. During the month I will be sharing contributions of Black Americans as a tribute to a great people.
Why do we have Black History Month? This question is probably one of the most raised questions in the month of February in many classrooms across America. Blacks living in America during the early years of the twentieth century were commonly accepted as having little history other than that of slavery. Dr. Carter G. Woodson, the “Father of Black History” was fully aware of the tremendous contributions made by Blacks to this country. The accomplishment made by Blacks after slavery was celebrated in Black communities across the nation. In 1926, Dr. Carter Woodson initiated a national Negro History week to recognize and promote the achievements of Black Americans. It is commonly said that Woodson selected February to encompass the birthdays of two great Americans who played a prominent role in shaping black history, namely Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Some may ask what is so special or different about the history of Blacks living in America that warrants a month or even a year of celebration. Our guest speaker, Nathaniel Larimore has taught Social Studies for fourteen years in the Baltimore City Public Schools System. He has been teaching American Government and African American Studies at Baltimore City College High School since 2003. His current teaching assignments at Baltimore City College are American Government- CP and Theory of Knowledge-IB.
The Host's of EarthGrind Radio Write2Manifest and SageGram, will be discussing Black History Month and how it is being used to make a mokery of black folks.
We are also posing the question to the Black/African community, what are we celebrating and how are we honoring the legacy of our ancestors whom are pioneers of change and fought for the liberation of Black/African people.
We say Mockery because we as black people have accepted our position in society as if we have really evolved.
Many believe we are free.
Organizations Like Google feel comfortable appropriating our warrior women on their site. Showing an image the tells a story but not the true story.
The legacy of Black/African ancestors should be honored and celebrated everyday. Not within the confines of the shortest month of the year; but through psychological revolution, spiritual revolution,educational revolution and so on and so forth.
We have work to do, much has been sacrificed so we can rise to the moment, where we are liberated from white supremacy and the agenda that is in the process of insuring our annihilation.

Black History Month is honored by our esteemed guest, Joel Freeman, who has one of the world's largest collections relative to black history. Joel is known worldwide for the authority that he is. He authored countless books on the topic and is a much after speaker. On this show, Joel talks about several lesser known African Americans who made history--Frederick Douglass, Annie Malone, Hariet Tubman, Paul Cuffee, and a National Treasure who is making history today--Jesse Epps. We also honor Presidents Day.
On February 19, we have Jesse Epps as Joyce talks about her heroes. http://www.tobtr.com/s/6095307
Today John wraps up his discussion of Black History Month as he welcomes Fay Williams, wife of Pastor Sheldon Williams, to the show. Fay is a mother, grandmother, and educator, and will bring a fresh perspective to the need to understand black history so as not to continue repeating the patterns that have been so destructive to the black community. Join Fay and John for some lively and honest discussion of black history and the need to teach it in our families and schools.

February is Black History Month, so John will highlight members of ACAC who have a special passion and insight into this important topic. The month starts in this show with ACAC member Rick Nowlin, who is part of the ACAC worship team as an instrumentalist, works for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and black history enthusiast. Rick said he did a Black History show 20 years ago for WORD-FM here in Pittsburgh, and feels like it's time to resurrect that material. We agree! So john John and Rick for this first installment of black history on the ACAC Radio Network as together as a church we follow Jesus in diverse community
Since John could not line up any hosts for today, he decided to go it alone. Drawing on a lifetime spent in urban ministry and many years of work in Africa, John will present his own views on the importance of Black History Month and his personal philosophy of being an agent of racial reconciliation. John will discuss the movie 12 Years a Slave, his teaching of black theology, his interpretation of 2 Samuel 21 as it applies to reconciliation and his inclusion of African Americans profiles in his book The Price of Leadership. You don't want to miss this unique approach and discussion of racial reconciliation.
