" No human counsel hath devised, nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.
“It hath seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, devoutly, and gratefully acknowledged, as with one heart and voice, by the whole American people. I do, therefore, invite my fellow-citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea, and those who are sojourning i

The Gist of Freedom pays tribute to President Obama's birthday with the speech, we believe, is responsible for giving birth to his presidency.
State Senator Barack Obama, delivered the Democratic National Convention's keynote address on Tuesday, July 27, 2004. It was a refreshing, revitalizing and unifying speech. The enthusiastic response from the audience foretold the historic story of Iowa, the overwhelming support they gave him, 4 years later, during his successful run to the White House.

Mr Holder is the first black US attorney general and has had the fourth longest tenure in the post in history resinged today September 25th, 2014. Listen to The Gist of Freedom with Roy Paul www.BlackHistoryUnversity.com
Now that Holder feels he has accomplished more in recent months in the areas of prison and sentencing reform and helped restart a national conversation about racial justice in light of the shooting of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Mo., the people said, he feels more comfortable with leaving government.
In August 2014, Holder became controversial again when he ordered the Department of Justice to investigate events surrounding the death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown at the hands of Ferguson, Missouri police officer, Darren Wilson. He ordered the DOJ to investigate possible civil rights violations related to the shooting and excessive force Ferguson police used against Brown supporters following the incident.
Eric H. Holder, Jr., U.S. Attorney General since 2009, was born on January 21, 1951 in the Bronx, New York to parents of Barbadian descent, Eric, a real estate agent and Miriam Holder, a telephone operator. Holder was raised in East Elmhurst, Queens, a community which included a number of famous African Americans such as Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Harry Belafonte, and Sidney Poitier. Civil rights activist Malcolm X lived two blocks from young Holder and on one occasion in 1964, then recently crowned heavy weight champion Muhammad Ali entertained him and other community children on the steps of the Malcolm’s house.
Holder entered Columbia University where he participated in sit-ins by African American students. In 1973, he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in U.S. history from Columbia and then entered Columbia University Law School, earning a J.D. in 1976.
The full-length documentary, NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER GIVE IN is based on the life of Emmanuel Jal. In the early 1980s, at the age of seven, Jal was swept into Sudan’s civil war, becoming one of 10,000 child soldiers conscripted on both sides of the two decades’ long conflict. The film has been touring the film festival circuit. It premiered at the Berlinale festival and won the Cadillac audience choice award at the Tribeca film festival.
Join The Gist of Freedom with host Roy Paul and Guest host, Dr. Sidney Davis www.BlackHistoryblog.com
Emmanuel was adopted by the now legendary British aid worker Emma McCune; Shortly after she adopted Jal, McCune died in a suspicious car crash, leaving Emmanuel “orphaned” once again. Jal rises from ruthless child soldier to refugee to rap star. He finds his own redemption and life mission through a message of peace that represents one of the 21st centuries’ most inspiring and hopeful journeys, and a metaphor for the broader African predicament.
Emmanuel’s journey is, in many ways, just beginning. His dream of Gua, peace, in Sudan, and prosperity in Africa, is threatened by corrupt leaders, genocidal warlords, and Western indifference. Hopefully, Emmanuel’s peace – his quest to make the world a better place through his music, activism and youth education – will prove to be far more significant than Emmanuel’s former war.
The photos of enslaved West Africans show these quilted coded patterns from the quilts "ichie" marks cut into their skin
If you read the book, Hidden In Plain View, written by Jackie Tobin should tune in to The Gist of Freedom with Roy Paul (@RoyPaulReports) and his guest, author Mrs.Teresa Kemp! Teresa book The Keeper of the Fire book covers not just Igbo Tribe's slavery but slavery in Africa by Arabs and Africans.
Many people questions the encoded quilts. They argue enslaved Africans were not intelligent enough to out smart the Slavers. What many fail to understand, that most Africans were multi-langual. They wrote and read in more than on language. Many asked who could understand the coded quilt pattern language. Tonight's guest, Mrs. Kemp has posters from Nigeria that date the symbols and patterns to 1400 AD this is clearly before the Civil War in America 1861-1865. We have the linage of 3 Eze's of Igbo land to 1042, 1087, 1092 BC.

Clarence The Pencilman Pointer began winning numerous art contests throughout Southern California and has gained international status. Hundreds of drawing to his credit, the master pencil artist has no signs of slowing down. Some people are in disbelief because most of the images actually look like real photography projects. That is how realistic his work has developed over the years. He can basically draw anything on the planet!
* Recent patrons of his art masterpieces are Singer Stevie Wonder and Actor/Actress/Singers Wil & Jada Picket Smith
Listen in and learn more about Clarence's amazing career and work with Antonia Badon on The Gist of Freedom
Tonight's show is dedicated to Charles White ‘Images of Dignity’, Charles White (1918-1979) captured the strength, character and complexity of African Americans in dramatic charcoal illustrations.
When his Social Realist images were published in a book for the first time in 1967, Negro Digest promoted it. In an un-bylined article, the magazine featured a portfolio of Charles White’s drawings from “Images of Dignity: The Drawings of Charles White” (Ward Ritchie Press).

Tonight Listen to The Gist of Freedom! We will be joined by community activist iEsha Sekou from Street Corner Resources. iEsha will discuss The Michael Brown Case, Ferguson, Demilitarizing local police departments and Restoring Police Residency requirements. WWW.BlackHistoryBlog.com
"Nowadays, police are looking, and acting, more like soldiers than cops, with bad consequences. And those who suffer the consequences are usually innocent civilians.
Why armored vehicles in a Midwestern inner suburb? Why would cops wear camouflage gear against a terrain patterned by convenience stores and beauty parlors? Why are the authorities in Ferguson, Mo. so given to quasi-martial crowd control methods (such as bans on walking on the street) and, per the reporting of Riverfront Times, the firing of tear gas at people in their own yards? (“‘This my property!’ he shouted, prompting police to fire a tear gas canister directly at his face.”) Why would someone identifying himself as an 82nd Airborne Army veteran, observing the Ferguson police scene, comment that “We rolled lighter than that in an actual warzone”?
