Michael Row the Boat Ashore
"Michael, Row the Boat Ashore" is an African-american spiritual. It was first noted during the American Civil War at St. Helena Island, one of the Sea Islands of South Carolina, USA.
The song was sung by former slaves whose owners had abandoned the island before the Union navy arrived to enforce a blockade. Charles Pickard Ware, an abolitionist and Harvard graduate who had come to supervise the plantations on St. Helena Island wrote the song down in music notation as he heard the freedmen sing.
The lyric describes the simple crossing of the River Jordan with macabre undertones provided by reference to trumpets, eternal life and unknown lands. Despite its deathly connotations the song is affirming, a celebration of faith under oppression.
“This book will force many readers to reexamine their assumptions about American history… Young readers will be fascinated and better informed for having experienced this book,” wrote School Library Journal. Striking photographs highlight this unknown heritage.”

Dr. Gerard Lameiro shares what he's found in his new research about how America has been sliding into a sinkhole of moral, political and economic turmoil and near-bankruptcy. He has suggestions for freedom-loving Americans on how we can fix this mess for the sake of our children and grandchildren. Tune in!
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
Minister Duru has been withFaith Restoration Ministries since the beginning. She is coming with an enthusiam which is all her own. Very often we hear so many interpretations of the Bible and the enemy is having a field day confusing people concerning what is right, acceptable and holy. Too many have become careless and arrogant with the expectation that God will accept their contribution. It is our prayer that as the Holy Spirit directs us that we will express and present God's Word the way He wants us to know it.

On the site of the Manassas Industrial School for Colored Youth, this five-acre park is now a park of remembrance for the school’s founder, former slave Jennie Dean. The outlines of the foundations of the original building are marked, and there is a model of the school and a kiosk with an audio program that provides information about Dean and the school’s founding. Dean raised money for the school for almost 10 years before Manassas Industrial was chartered in 1893. The dedication ceremonies were led by orator Frederick Douglass.
This five-acre archaeological site, dedicated in 1995, is located on the original site of the Manassas Industrial School for Colored Youth. The school was founded largely through the efforts of a former enslaved woman, Jennie Dean who, after almost a decade of charismatic fundraising, chartered the school on October 7, 1893. The school was designed as a private residential institution providing both academic and vocational training within a Christian setting.

Welcome to Independent Underground Radio LIVE - MICHIGAN'S TOP POLITICO PODCAST - Aired each MONDAY & WEDNESDAY from 11:00 am - 1:00 pm ET!-- Noon TODAY
On The Show:
-As of late, the corporate media has had a sick fascination with demonizing African-American Men. Two recent examples include NFL Players Ray Riice & Adrian Peterson. Rice, who had a incident of domestic violence with his then girlfriend - now wife Janay Rice - admiitted to the incident to NFL's Authorities when asked and received punishment of a 2 day suspension. The punishment was not good enough for the Media, who kept pressing NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for more punishment by suspending Rice indefinitely. Now Rice is appealing via the Players Union is Suspension. Is this right and has the media made Rice's situation worse?
-Should Adrian Peterson, another African-American NFL Player be tried and convicted in the Media for alleged chiid abuse against his four year old son, before his day in a court of law? Is the media equality worried about children being abused daily in all types of households across America or is it Peterson Race and Financial Status that's riding this story?
