" 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.
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.
Join The Gist of Freedom with host Roy Paul as he speaks with attorney activist Michael Coard.
Michael Coard will discuss how voters and city officials decided after being sued for police brutality it was more feasible to shutdown Jennings Missour's Police department.
Michael Coard — lawyer, activist, teacher — on defending the bad guys, fixing the city’s court system, hating on hip-hop, and forever changing the way you see George Washington
Criminal defense attorney Michael Coard is in constant motion. One minute he's involved in a high-profile cop-murder case; the next, he's hosting a radio show on WURD; then he's off to teach a hip-hop music course at Temple. His biggest project of late? Fighting the National Park Service to reinterpret American history. A North Philly kid who once dreamed of a baseball career, Coard harbors the highest hopes for his hometown even as his work keeps him ensconced in our city's underbelly. Over lunch at Butcher & Singer, we talked about why he does it all, and where he draws inspiration.
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”?
Listen to the conversation… Inspired by Dr. Umar Johnson, Frederick Douglass descendant-Combating Propaganda, Negative Stereotypes!
… We must be the Media!
"Hitler used a propaganda military campaign before he began to physically exterminate the Jewish people. The national mindset had been conditioned to accept the extermination to come." The negative proganda is not about the quality it's about the volume!

With best-selling mysteries like “Devil in a Blue Dress” among his more than three dozen books, Walter Mosley is a master of crime fiction who knows how to put his characters into tight, scary situations. In “Lift,” his new drama of suspense that begins performances This Fall at Crossroads Theater Company in New Brunswick!
Join The Gist of Freedom and Guest Host, Actor Haas Manning for a discussion with Dr. Ishmael Griffin, President of Crossroads Theater.
Crossroads is a black owned and operated theater! www.blackHistoryblog.com on iTunes WWW.BlackHistoryUniversity.com
The writer traps two strangers within an urban nightmare: Inside a damaged elevator that is stuck high up in a burning skyscraper.
Disturbing undertones of Sept. 11 aside, Mr. Mosley said his dramatic fiction was mostly about revealing the inner lives of the characters who are grappling with such terrors. “They are those average-looking people you see beside you every day who have interesting back stories that you wouldn’t ever suspect,” he said in a telephone interview from his home in Brooklyn.
Join The Gist of Freedom as we talk with Dan Duster, the grandson of the Anti-Lynching Crusader, Ida B. Wells!
"I had bought a pistol the first thing after Tom Moss was lynched, because I expected some cowardly retaliation from the lynchers. I felt that one had better die fighting against injustice than to die like a dog or a rat in a trap…I felt if I could take one lyncher with me, this would even up the score a little bit!" -
"In 1893, excluding Sundays, a Coloured man was lynched every day from January to December."
Ida never feared the lynch mob, she had faith in God to protect her: “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me” (Psalms 23:4). A threat to her life was not going to stop her from her crusade.The Review of Reviews announced that Wells, “a talented and resolute young lady of colour”, was on a pilgrimage around the British Isles to campaign on the subject of Negro lynching; they also published these Sadistic Statistics, "in 1893, excluding Sundays, a Coloured man was lynched every day from January to December."
