Slavery, Gold, & Sugar: The Dominican Republic & Haiti
How much wealth has been stolen from the Melanated masses across the globe? We may never know, but we do know that everywhere we find white supremacy, we also find plundered or exploited resources. Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri, Thursday April 28th, 2016 at 9 pm EST (6 pm PST, 7 pm EST, 8 pm CST) as we discuss the slave trade and plundering of the DR & Haiti.
Like Brazil, you will see the locals robbed of their land, worked to death, and mistreated solely for the benefit of racist Europeans. Gold and sugar removed with little regard for the individuals working the land. It should be clear by now that Melanated life meant little to nothing to these villainous, wicked, criminals from across the sea. Such a sentiment would make it obvious why the earliest known slave revolt, in the New World, happened here in 1522.

A Sabbath School is a place where slaves can learn to read and write. It is believed to have originated in the area of the State of Connecticut. It is believed that abolitionists supplied the books and materials necessary for these schools and they were held on a Sunday because many masters did allow their slaves to attend church so it was the ideal place. Maybe this is where our current churches get the idea of Sunday school from.
The Homecoming Network welcomes the opportunity to meet with Zambian and Southern Africa Community Association (SACA) representatives to have direct dialog on the challenges we encounter between African Americans and Africans that prevent us from building strong and sustainable relationships. o What are the misconceptions on both sides
o Why African Americans are so disconnected from Africa

Former Presidential candidate, BEN CARSON said, "Putting HARRIET TUBMAN on the $20 bill makes her the new face of slavery." Presidential candidate and GOP front runner, DONALD TRUMP, called the it a move 'political correctness' and suggested TUBMAN grace another denomination such as the $2 bill instead. For AFRICAN-AMERICANS is this a symbolic gesture that should be celebrated or is it a disgrace to TUBMAN's legacy. PRESIDENT ANDREW JACKSON'S image will remain on the back of the $20, DESPITE his horrific track record of attrocities against NATIVE AMERICANS should he be removed altogether? MD asking the questions America's afraid to ask? ALL I ASK IS THAT YOU THINK
Exploring the two types of slavery, physical and mental, Dr. Dave and Uncle Lu ask: What is a slave? How does Free Will tie into all this? What factors are causing modern slavery? Why does God allow slavery? When I purchase everyday itemslike chocolate, computers, and clothing, am I supporting slavery?

Join author Craig Steven Wilder for a discussion of his research and book - Ebony & Ivy: Race, Slavery, and the Troubled History of America's University. Craig Steven Wilder is a professor of American history at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and has taught at Wiliams College and Dartmouth College.
Many of America's revered colleges and universities - from Harvard, Yale, and Princeton to Rutgers, Williams College, and UNC - were soaked in the sweat and the tears, and sometimes the blood of people of color. The earliest academies proclaimed their mission to Christianize the savages of North America, and played a key role in white conquest. Later, the slave economy and higher education grew up together, each nurturing the other. Slavery funded colleges, built campuses, and paid the wages of professors. Enslaved Americans waited on faculty and students; academic leaders aggressively courted the support of slave owners and slave traders. Significantly, as Wilder shows, our leading universities, dependent on human bondage, became breeding grounds for the racist ideas that sustained them.
Ebony and Ivy is a powerful and propulsive study and the first of its kind, revealing a history of oppression behind the institutions usually considered the cradle of liberal politics.

This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

Cornell University Professor Edward E. Baptist author of The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism explains the absurd Economist Magazine review of his book that blamed him for not being fair to slave owners, stolen capital and stolen labor, slavery and the foundations of the global economy, the economics of slavery, the expansion of slavery in the United States, African Americans bodies as resources, torture and the legacy of slavery, Charles Ball and documenting slavery and the linkage between slavery and the development of the American economy….

On Saturday, April 30, the Nation of Islam is hosting a meeting entitled, "Let Us Make Man." It is a call for boys 13-18 to come and hear a special session with Min. Louis Farrakhan, designed to address the special issues facing African American and Latino youth. Will this meeting deter youth from the self destructive behavior that lands them in prison? Will it give them the foundation to create a different code of morals and ethics to live by? Will it steer them toward an emotionally secure adulthood? Will it enable them to develop healthy relationships with the opposite sex? Will it lead to a rebuilding of a culture of marriage and family in the future? We'll discuss the teachings that men receive from the Nation of Islam that may have the power to unlearn the slavery conditioning that has destroyed generations of African Americans and Latinos living under American racial oppression. Bro. Toure Muhammad, editor of Bean Soup Times, joins us to take a look at the transformation of men who are exposed to true knowledge of themselves.
