From President Barack Obama to jazz master Ellis Marsalis, Olympic gold medalist Diane Dixon to Academy Award winner Mo’Nique, Pulitzer Prize winner Maya Angelou to world heavyweight champ Evander Holyfield. These, and more, are the African American figures we've been honoring throughout the month with encore presentations of their most compelling interviews. And soon we’ll be capping off our 28 Days of Black History Makers series with a three-hour special, presented by AT&T. Hosted by Janice M
Hey gang. So, with this one I'll riff a bit about black face and put a historical context behind what you see today so that you can better communicate with those that are apathetic. I start the show with a very loud pop record to get the energy going. I think I'll be doing that for every Sunday show. In this episode I'll also riff very shortly about anti-rape shorts and some television program about a negro bed wench that I've watched, never will watch, but I've read about. Here's a few links. http://thegrio.com/2013/10/30/a-brief-history-of-blackface-just-in-time-for-halloween/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/wildwildleft/687981154547077/?comment_id=687995947878931¬if_t=like https://www.facebook.com/FatherTeresasWineCellar http://www.policymic.com/articles/71161/company-wants-women-to-buy-these-anti-rape-shorts
Forty-five minutes west of Walt Disney's make-believe history, archaeologists dig for real artifacts. Hunched over a shallow, square excavation, they search for Peliklakaha, the largest Black Seminole village, Fort Mose known to historians, a place where different cultures joined in a fight for freedom more than 200 years ago. Until now, say University of Florida archaeologists, Peliklakaha existed only in the writings of military leaders and a painting commissioned by the U.S. general who had burned it down.
Join The Gist of Freedom with Historian Gilbert Raiford!
When Highland Park senior Marshon Sanders, an African American, was pulled out of classes and sent to the dean's office October 31st, Halloween, for coming to school in a Jesus costume, this set off a wave of controversy. Were officials offended because he was dressed like a revered religious figure, Jesus, for Halloween? Or were officials offended that Marshon, a black youth, dared to portray Jesus, who has been portrayed as white? Marshon says inasmuch as he had been recently baptised, he wore the costume in honor of Jesus. Author and historian Walter McCray discusses his books on the racial identity of Jesus and the Black Presence in the Bible. How does the racial images of religious figures affect our beliefs about God and about ourselves?
40 Acers and Some Bullshit –Black History & Black People in White America
Our biggest downfall to date is our inability to understand the importance of our Black History. There is no other story more complex of that of Black people in the United States of America. I LOVE studying about it and sharing what I know with anyone who has an interest.
Generations of people survived, fought and died to give us the freedoms we enjoy today. Slowly we are losing hose freedoms. I think we owe it to our future to do at least half as much as the leaders of the generations past have done.
Learn from where our freedom comes and never forget. I won’t let you forget, every Sunday at 1PM PST!]
