    Black Reconstruction #LaShawnAllenMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Finance

    Hosted By: LaShawn Allen-Muhammad


    Who were the first Black Elected Officials? During the month of November, as the country gears up to re-elect or vote in the next wave of politicians, Black Reconstruction will revisit the Reconstruction era to pay homage to the Black Men who came before Obama.  During this tumultuous time, Blacks not only established townships, they also positioned themselves to be an integral part of government.   


    At a Glance.. In 1855, Brownhelm Township, founded by Col. Henry Brown,  gained notoriety throughout the U.S, when the township elected an African-American to government office.  The NY Syracuse Daily Journal, May 31, 1855 reported that John Mercer Langston was a fugitive slave who had been elected clerk.  Brownhelm's early residents had long been known for their strong anti-slavery stance; and Col. Henry Brown's home on the Lake Shore was often a final stop on the Underground Railroad, before reaching Canada by boat.    African-American Firsts: Government


    Local elected official: John Mercer Langston, 1855, town clerk of Brownhelm Township, Ohio.


    State elected official: Alexander Lucius Twilight, 1836, the Vermont legislature.


    Governor (appointed): P.B.S. Pinchback served as governor of Louisiana from Dec. 9, 1872-Jan. 13, 1873, during impeachment proceedings against the elected governor.


    U.S. Representative: Joseph Rainey became a Congressman from South Carolina in 1870 and was reelected four more times. 


    U.S. Senator: Hiram Revels became Senator from Mississippi from Feb. 25, 1870, to March 4, 1871, during Reconstruction.  


    There have only been a total of five black senators in U.S. history: the remaining two are Blanche K. Bruce [1875-1881] and Barack Obama

    The Black Shoe Diaries Wrestlemania 31 Podcast Extravaganza

    in Sports

    Don't worry, we have no idea why we're doing this, either.


    This Sunday is Wrestlemania 31, the biggest event in fake sports of the year. Because we're a bunch of children, we decided to do a podcast dedicate to WWE's premier event. Adam Collyer, Bill DiFilippo, BSD alum Dan Vecellio and CoachingSearch.com Managing Editor/contributor to The Only Colors (the network's Michigan State blog) Chris Vannini got together to talk about this year's card. If you have nothing better to do, we highly recommend listening as the guys get way too giddy about Brock Lesnar.

    Black Thoughts and Theory: The Radio Show - Black Health

    in Culture

    BROTHERS AND SISTERS ... TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES 


    Health disparities between African Americans and other racial and ethnic populations are striking and apparent in life expectancy, death rates, infant mortality, and other measures of health status and risk conditions and behaviors.


    When you look at the 10 Leading Causes of Death for African Americans, you find that most of them are substantially preventable by making some lifestyle changes. The question becomes, do we, as a people, have access to that information and secondly why are we in this situation in the first place. 


    Join Alex Primo, Asha Zuri, and Joe Whitfield Thursday at 9 pm EST as we explore the sicknesses and ailments that plague our people and some possible ways to remedy them. We will look at common issues such as Heart Disease, Cancer, Stroke, and other health concerns of Melanated people. 



    African Americans in 2009 had the largest death rates from heart disease and stroke compared with other racial and ethnic populations.
    From 2007-2010, the largest prevalence of hypertension was among adults aged 65 years and older, African American adults, US-born adults, adults with less than a college education, adults who received public health insurance (18- 64 years old) and those with diabetes, obesity, or a disability, compared with their counterparts.
    The prevalence of obesity among adults from 2007-2010 was largest among African American women compared with white and Mexican American women and men.
