SORT BY Relevancy
From 7 to 8 pm Pacific Time on March 19, join historian Michael Hoffman as he discusses "The Black Pope," the Jesuit now known to the world as the new leader of Catholicism, Pope Francis.
In the past the head of the Jesuit order has been referred to by friend and foe alike as "The Black Pope," as a signifier that the top Jesuit in the world had powers of command rivaling those of the pontiff himself. Now the Church is headed by a prelate who is both a Jesuit and the pope -- a historic first. What does this portend for Christianity and the world?Are the legends about sinister Jesuit control true, or are they libels against an order that has often aligned itself with the poor and oppressed? How does all this relate to the alleged "Malachi prophecy" which supposedly predicts that the new pope is "Peter Romanus," the last pope of all time?Tune into "On the Contrary" as we explore these fascinating issues.
We are back with another interview, this time with Samurai Pope. We will get catching up with him on what's been going on, talking about his "Lazy Sundaes" EP, and listening to some new music off his latest EP "Yesterday's Old News". You don't want to miss this one.

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.
