  • WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    07/30/2015The social philosophy of black nationalism only means that we have to get together and remove the evils, the vices, alcoholism, drug addiction, and other evils that are destroying the moral fiber of our community. We our selves have to lift the level of our community, the standard of our community to a higher level, make our own society beautiful so that we will be satisfied in our own social circles and won't be running around here trying to knock our way into a social circle where we're not wanted. So I say, in spreading a gospel such as black nationalism, it is not designed to make the black man re-evaluate the white man -- you know him already -- but to make the black man re-evaluate himself. Don't change the white man's mind -- you can't change his mind, and that whole thing about appealing to the moral conscience of America -- America's conscience is bankrupt. She lost all conscience a long time ago. Uncle Sam has no conscience.


    They don't know what morals are. They don't try and eliminate an evil because it's evil, or because it's illegal, or because it's immoral; they eliminate it only when it threatens their existence. So you're wasting your time appealing to the moral conscience of a bankrupt man like Uncle Sam. If he had a conscience, he'd straighten this thing out with no more pressure being put upon him. So it is not necessary to change the white man's mind. We have to change our own mind. You can't change his mind about us. We've got to change our own minds about each other. We have to see each other with new eyes. We have to see each other as brothers and sisters. We have to come together with warmth so we can develop unity and harmony that's necessary to get this problem solved ourselves. How can we do this? How can we avoid jealousy? How can we avoid the suspicion and the divisions that exist in the community? I'll tell you how." E

  • Another Dead Lion, Who Cares?

    in Politics Conservative

    So they tell me a dentist paid 55,000 to shoot and kill an African lion! The world seems to be in an uproar. This thing brought Jummy Kimmel to tears on the air! You have got to be kidding me? Another dead lion? It too bad for sure but not nearly worth shedding a tear over. If you need something to cry about, cry about the 11,00 black babies where killed in New York at the hands of abortion clinics.


    Ferguson burned because of Mike Brown. 11,000 Black babies murdered to the silence of the left and the leftist media.


    I am sorry if I can't get all misty over the death of an aging lion.

     Property Rights and Wrongs: African-Americans at the Courthouse with The Legal Genealogist


    From being treated as property to having their property stolen by those who used the law against the freedmen, African Americans' experience at the courthouse had only one bright spot: it created records for the genealogist-descendants.


    A Certified Genealogist with a law degree, The Legal Genealogist Judy G. Russell examines the interplay between genealogy and the law. She is a lecturer, educator and writer who enjoys helping others understand a variety of issues, ranging from using DNA in family history to the effect the law had on our ancestors’ lives and the records they left behind.


    A graduate of George Washington University and Rutgers School of Law-Newark, Judy is a Colorado native with roots deep in the American south on her mother’s side and entirely in Germany on her father’s side. She's a member of the National Genealogical Society, the Association of Professional Genealogists, and, among others, the state genealogical societies of New Jersey, North Carolina, Virginia, Texas and Illinois. She has written for the National Genealogical Society Quarterly and the National Genealogical Society Magazine .

    Police Officer, Samuel Battle and the Shattering of the Color Line in New York

    in Education

    The Gist of Freedom is pleased to welcome Arthur Browne, author of One Righteous Man:Samuel Battle and the Shattering of the Color Line in New York!


    In this Sept. 4, 1941 file photo, Lt. Samuel Battle gets a kiss from his 4-year-old granddaughter, Yvonne, at City Hall, where he was sworn in as the city's first black parole commissioner.  AP Photo, File


    In his latest book, Browne — who currently serves as the Daily News editorial page editor — presents a biography of New York City’s first African-American police officer. Based on an unfinished manuscript by Langston Hughes and Browne’s own research, “One Righteous Man” tells the story of Samuel Battle’s groundbreaking rise through the ranks of the NYPD, a decades-long odyssey that is both the story of one man’s unwavering dedication to racial progress and a harbinger of the divisions between police and the communities they serve that plague America today.

  • WEBCAST: The Death of Sandra Bland

    in Current Events

    Call-In 516-387-1639


    On July 13th, 2015, Sandra Bland, a 28 year old Black woman from Naperville, IL, was found dead in a Waller County, Texas, jail cell on July 13, three days after she was arrested for a minor traffic offense. She was in Texas to begin a new job at her alma mater, Prairie View A&M University. The cause of death was listed as "self-inflicted asphyxiation"  - suicide - with a noose fashioned from a plastic garbage bag.

    Join me with my co-host, educator and civil rights advocate Sharonda Allen, as we discuss the disturbing aspects of this case, how a traffic stop for a minor offense escalated into a major confrontation, incarceration, and the unexplained death of a young woman with so much to live for.

    What is it like to be Black in America?

    We anticipate a no-holds-barred discussion on the unanswered questions in the Sandra Bland case and the repeated violations of the civil rights of African-Americans at the hands of police, and the callous disregard for Black lives.
