Boston State Senator William Owens, with Donald Brown on The Gist of Freedom and TANDLRADIO.COM! This show is in honor of George Edwin Taylor!
More than one hundred years before Barack Obama, George Edwin Taylor made presidential history. Born in the antebellum South to an enslaved black man and a freed woman, Taylor became one of the first African American ticketed as a political party’s nominee for president of the United States, running against Theodore Roosevelt in 1904.

Orphaned as a child at the peak of the Civil War, Taylor spent several years homeless before boarding a Mississippi riverboat that dropped him in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Taken in by an African American farm family, Taylor attended a private school and eventually rose to prominence as the owner and editor of a labor newspaper and as a vocal leader in Wisconsin’s People’s Party. At a time when many African Americans felt allegiance to the Republican Party for its support of abolition, Taylor’s sympathy with the labor cause drew him first to the national Democratic Party and then to an African American party, the newly formed National Liberty Party, which in 1904 named him its presidential candidate.

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.

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.

Queen Nanny is featured on Jamaica’s $500 bill and is the only woman declared one of Jamaica’s National Heroes.
For over 30 years she freed almost 1000 enslaved people and helped them settle into these new Maroon communities.
Nestled in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica is a small community known as Moore Town. It is also known as Nanny Maroon Town as it became home to Queen Nanny and her ancestors of the Maroons!
The Nanny defeated the British forces that enslaved them in many battles. Despite repeated attacks from the British soldiers on Grandy Nanny’s settlement which was formed in her honor and called Nanny Town, it remained under Maroon control for years with successful defenses.
Nanny of the Maroons is hailed as the true Queen of Jamaica. From the Ivory Coast in Africa, Nanny and her brothers found themselves in Jamaica during the 1800’s during a period of slavery and wars. During this time Nanny cunningly outwitted the British soldiers rescued and freed slaves and refused to sign any agreement to return run away slaves.
