Queen Nanny is featured on Jamaica’s $500 bill and is the only woman declared one of Jamaica’s National Heroes.
For over 30 years she freed almost 1000 enslaved people and helped them settle into these new Maroon communities.
Nestled in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica is a small community known as Moore Town. It is also known as Nanny Maroon Town as it became home to Queen Nanny and her ancestors of the Maroons!
The Nanny defeated the British forces that enslaved them in many battles. Despite repeated attacks from the British soldiers on Grandy Nanny’s settlement which was formed in her honor and called Nanny Town, it remained under Maroon control for years with successful defenses.
Nanny of the Maroons is hailed as the true Queen of Jamaica. From the Ivory Coast in Africa, Nanny and her brothers found themselves in Jamaica during the 1800’s during a period of slavery and wars. During this time Nanny cunningly outwitted the British soldiers rescued and freed slaves and refused to sign any agreement to return run away slaves.

Please join us Sunday at 10AM CST as we converse with Daryl Bates & Dr. Keisha Pitt, founders of The New Black Codes.
We began The New Black Codes after realizing that our community was in serious peril. With the media in frenzy over the recent crimes against our community, we decided that something had to be done, and done now! We didn’t want to just sign a petition or talk within our family and friends about all the issues our community has. We believed our community needed real change. We researched the statistics on our wealth, assets, family life, and health compared to other racial groups. The results were so alarming we got to work right away. We believe this change can only come with improving all of these categories. We cannot play victims any longer because the laws keeping us back has been removed. We now must be the players in this game.
Besides thriving to improve our community, personally we enjoy spending time with our family and friends. Dr. Keisha Pitt is a successful chiropractor and Daryl Bates is a thriving business owner. Both have a love for learning and charity.
Is there a step by step formula for rectifying the poverty and violence in urban America? Author Emmanuel Barbee thinks so. Is the real problem the lack of vision among leadership? Are we trying to do the same old things the same old ways and expecting different results? Are the actions of our leaders to address urban violence literally insane? Today we'll discuss his book "The Solution For Black America; Reclaiming, Rebuilding and Restoring the Urban Ghettos in America" and what elements are workable as a solution to employ among the urban population.

Joe Goldberg is a former CIA officer who worked for eight years in covert action, information collection, and analysis. During those years, he earned a Meritorious Unit Citation and three Performance Awards.
His debut novel, Secret Wars: An Espionage Story is a suspenseful glimpse into the shadowy world of the CIA, where deceivers become the deceived and the consequences are life or death. It's a clandestine world where intricate networks of people fight a complex battle to keep the world safe from terrorism.
When terrorists funded by the Libyan government strike airports in Rome and Vienna in 1985, the CIA enlists top propaganda expert Mike Garnett to help recruit a high-ranking Libyan official, Foreign Minister Abdallah Mukhtar, to work for the CIA. As violence escalates between the US military and terrorists based in Libya, Garnett utilizes CIA assets in Hollywood to produce a propaganda video designed to convince Mukhtar he was betrayed by his own regime. Garnett's plan works--but goes sideways when it motivates the Libyan official to do something Garnett didn't even consider.
Sharp and insightful, Secret Wars: An Espionage Story is a thrilling tale of deception, betrayal, and patriotism--and Garnett soon learns they're not as black and white as they seem when he's forced to reevaluate the true nature of the business of deception.
For fans of Tom Clancy, David Ignatius, and Frederick Forsyth, Secret Wars is a fictional thriller set against the backdrop of historical events. Meticulously researched, it pulls from the author's personal experiences as a member of the CIA.
