The 25th Louisiana Railroad Festival in DeQuincy, Louisiana host this week's American Passenger Rail Heritage Foundation's Let's Talk Trains program.
The City of DeQuincy which observed the centennial of its incorporation in 2003, owes its existence to the railroads. The original townsite was laid out in 1896 and 1897 when the main line of the Kansas City Pittsburgh and Gulf Railroad reached here.
Over the years the railroad -- the Kansas City Southern and Union Pacific Railroads -- have provided employment for several generations of DeQuincy residents and have been a mainstay of the local economy.
Before the coming of the Interstate system and better roads, DeQuincy was the hub for railroad travel, with several east-west and north-south passenger trains coming through each day. The passenger trains are gone now, but the city is still important in the railroad freight industry and continues to be a “railroad town.”
We invite everyone to come and help us celebrate our heritage and traditions as a railroad town; visit our beautiful Railroad Museum which was built in 1923 as the Kansas City Southern Depot, and which is recognized as one of the most attractive restored depots in the nation.
Join us live in person or live in the chatroom or by calling in to the show at 646-716-7106.
The American Passenger Rail Heritage Foundation's Let's Talk Trains travels to the University of Missouri-Saint Louis to visit the John W. Barriger III National Railroad Library. Established in 1984 as a special collection of the St. Louis Mercantile Library, the John W. Barriger III National Railroad Library stands today as one of North America’s largest and finest railroad history collections. Named after the noted twentieth century railroad executive, John W. Barriger, III (1899-1976), whose collection forms its heart, the Library has grown to become a major resource for the history of railroad business and technology as well as for the study of railroading’s multidimensional influence on the American economy, society and culture. Join us as we tour one the world's greatest transportation libraries.

De’Vante Reeves aka “Don Codeine”, in some perceptions, is probably viewed as an 18 year old and a recent graduate just out looking for a party, but the fact is, the Codeine Music team is a hip hop powerhouse. Don Codeine has been packing shows since early start of 2014. In fact, at a show in Philly February 2014 at a venue called The Let Out, Codeine and the Don Codeine squad sold so many tickets that the concert poured out into the streets.
Don Codeine’s presence on the 2014 Greek Tour has associates dubbing him as “The East Coast’s #1 Prospect”. The current mixtape, “Real Life Situations”, is laced with several potential single releases and a grab bag full of party records.
Don Codeine stays busy and in the way of opportunity, just in the past week. The staff at Underground Railroad Entertainment Group and the executives from D4L (Shawty Lo’s Label) have been discussing a possible move for Codeine and the Don Codeine Team that could add them to the D4L Roster.
“How can the Underground Railroad Entertainment Group lose with this dude”, says the Memphis Don from U.R.R.E.G. “When industry professionals are looking for an artist in today’s world of Internet beats and electronic distribution, professionals want a guy to understand the role of the current project. Don Codeine is a one stop shop.”

In celebration of Black History Month and the 150 Anniversary Commemoration of the American Civil War and Gettysburg Address, you will see a very compelling side of Gettysburg as told through our guests. In 2013 the city of Gettysburg, the nation and the world reflected upon the Battle of Gettysburg, which took place from July 1 to July 3 1863, and President Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address on November 19, 1863. We showcased what visitors can expect to see and experience following the Commemorations and beyond the battlefield with Stacey Fox, Vice President of Marketing and Sales of the Gettysburg Convention & Visitors Bureau.
Then, Scott Hancock, PhD, Associate Professor of History and Africana Studies at Gettysburg College joins us to discuss the role of the Underground Railroad in the war, the African-American struggle for freedom--from President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, and the seminal events that took place in Gettysburg in 1863 that forever changed America.
Finally, Debra Sandoe McCauslin of For the Cause/Gettysburg Histories takes us along the Underground Railroad in Adams County, Pennsylvania where we visit Yellow Hill and the Quaker Valley to uncover the African-American families who settled in the area and the role of Quakers in the Abolitionist Movement there.
Join The Gist of Freedom, Thursday February 13th, as we welcome author Betty DeRamus, our guest for a special show in honor of Black History Month and Valentine’s Day, ! Betty will talk about her first book, Forbidden Fruit: Love Stories from the Underground Railroad, a collection of true stories about enslaved couples—and a few interracial ones—who took extraordinary steps to avoid being separated during the slavery era.
Betty's book Celebrates the Black men and women who fought to preserve their relationships during the slavery era. These romantic and heart- wrenching stories come to life in author Betty DeRamus’s two acclaimed non-fiction books. Forbidden Fruit: Love Stories from the Underground Railroad (Atria 2005) and Freedom by Any Means: True Stories of Cunning and Courage on the Underground Railroad (Atria 2009.
Forbidden Fruit is a collection of true stories about black couples (and a few interracial ones) who defied mobs, bloodhounds, bounty hunters and bullets to avoid being separated by slave masters, distance and time. Wrote author Herb Boyd: “Betty DeRamus has tapped a heretofore unknown vein of Black culture: love stories from the Underground Railroad.”
The book’s characters include a free black man who voluntarily became a slave to remain with his enslaved wife, and a runaway slave who carried his ailing wife to freedom on his back. Forbidden Fruit spent 9 months on Essence Magazine’s bestseller list. It also has been used as a textbook at Queen's College, New York, and John Jay College, New York: Memphis, Tennessee's LeMoyne-Owen College, Livonia, Michigan's Schoolcraft College, and numerous other Michigan schools.
