SORT BY Relevancy
by Paul Ruffins
Black history may have seemed “lost, stolen or strayed” at one time, but since then much of the African American past has been rediscovered and reanalyzed.
Unfortunately, this new research hasn’t yet filtered down to high schools, and many students and others still base their thinking on the information that existed in 1968 when CBS News produced the film Black History: Lost, Stolen or Strayed. At that time, many important works on Black history were more than thirty years out of date. For example, W.E.B. DuBois wrote History of the African Slave Trade in 1896 and Black Reconstruction in 1935, and Dr. Lorenzo Green finished The Negro in Colonial New England, 1620-1776 in 1942.
Over the past thirty years, historians, anthropologists, and other scholars such as John Blassingame, Dr. Eugene Genovese and Ira Berlin have revolutionized the study of African American life, history, and culture.
Some facts are indisputable. A few free Africans came to the New World with Columbus. African slaves first arrived in the Spanish colonies in the Caribbean in 1502 and came to what was to become the United States of America in 1619. Over the next 250 years, some African Americans were freed or freed themselves. The U.S. banned the external slave trade in 1808, and states from Maine to Maryland gradually enacted abolition laws.
Unfortunately, some historical questions may never be answered. For example, although estimates range from thirteen million to thirty million, we will probably never know exactly how many people were taken out of Africa during the slave trade because boats and people were counted differently in different African and European languages.
Black Issues presents some of the latest thinking to help educators lay to rest these ten common myths and misconceptions that distort and oversimplify nearly 500 years of African American history.

Black Americans feel bothered by the stealing of our culture. No matter what it's viewed as wrong,nasty,low class and negative. The moment someone outside of the black community do the same exact thing it's praised. It's viewed as something trendy,exotic, and innovative. A black person can rap or sing for years and get no promotion or billboards. The moment a non black person does it they get it all in a short period of time. They don't have to even be the best just sound half way like a black person. A lot of black people feel they love our culture but don't want us doing it. We want to explore this topic and frustration from our callers
Now tonight we will be talking about what Black history and the things that are good and bad about it that we see today. First glance most will think we are trying to be racial that's not the case. Most people think with emotion and not knowlege first so of coarse being who we are we are going to try to bridge some of these American gaps. Tune in from 7pm to 9pm central time be there or be square..
