    The Indians of North Florida, Chris Sewell & Steven Hill

    in Books

    North Florida’s Mixed-blood Indian People, Rediscovery of a Forgotten People
    In the early 1800s, dozens of Siouan-speaking Cheraw families, including Catawbas and Lumbees, fled war and oppression in the Carolinas and migrated to Florida; just as native Appalachicola Creeks were migrating away. Being neither Black nor White, the Cheraw descendants were persecuted by the harsh “racial” dichotomy of the Jim Crow era and almost forgot their proud heritage. Today they have rediscovered their past. This is their story.
    Creek Eastern Siouan Cheraw Indians, generally located in the panhandle of Florida. Related groups (Porch Creek, Redbones, Brass Ankles, etc) in which we can establish a surname connection locally or by association later (Mt Tabor Community).
    The Apalachicola River Indian Community Conference is a non-profit community-based tribal organization that works for the political, social, legal, and spiritual welfare of the Creek/Eastern Siouan Cheraw Indian people in the panhandle of north Florida. Its focus is to foster tribal cultural identity and unity, documentary historical research into our origins and history, and provide venues for communication, awareness, and growth. We are the descendants of the Indian people who lived in the 3 settlements whose history is documented in the “Our History” part of this website. These are surnames in our community:
    Ammons, Ayers, Barnwell, Bass, Bennett, Bird, Blanchard, Boggs, Brown, Bullard, Bunch, Bryant, Brooks, Chason, Chavis, Conyers, Copeland, Davis, Doyle, Goins, Hall, Harris, Hicks, Hill, Holly, Ireland, Jacobs, Johnson, Jones, Kever, Laramore, Linton, Lollie, Lolly, Long, Lovett, Mainer, Martin, Mayo, Moses, Oxendine, Perkins, Porter, Potter, Revell, Rollin, Scott, Simmons, Smith, Stafford, Stephens, Sweat, Thomas, Whitfield, Williams.

    DON'T BLAME GOD FOR THINGS SATAN (LUCIFER) DOES

    in Religion

    Too many people are blaming and hating on Almighty God for curses, troubles, and turmoils that come into their lives via Satan a.k.a (Lucifer). This is one of the root causes of many people today falling away from loving, honoring, and obeying Almighty God. Another is the pure "Jesus-Hater" or the "antichrist" movement if you will that comes straight out of many American colleges and universities. Then there is The entertainment industry that has always been in bed with the forces of evil, perversion, and lust as well as the book publishing industry that will spend million dollar advertising budgets promoting the occult with books like "The Harry Potter" series. Then the same public that buys that junk will turn around and wonder why America is in the dire straights it's in, why the dollar is on the verge of collaspe and why it's cities are starting to burn. Heaven help us.

    Wednesday Lunch & Learn w/ Million Dollar North American Power Earner: Bob Doran

    in Entrepreneur

    Recently hit $1 Million In Combined Earnings with North American Power.  Bob said: “While it’s great that the big money can be earned here, it’s the fact that were are creating financial stability for countless numbers of people, that’s what get’s me fired up!”


    “We chose the North American Power Opportunity because we saw it as a possible way out of the pressures of the publishing industry, which took deep dives during economy turmoil. I saw North American Power as a recession-proof safety net. It was another pillar of income that was in a burgeoning industry. Not everyone needs a magazine, but everyone needs electricity.”


    Bob and Lisa are thrilled to have replaced their long hours of overtime with the part-time hours they put into their North American Power team. They sold their magazine of 13 years, and now enjoy more time with friends, family, and continue to have a substantial income.


    “And best of all, I love what I do,” says Bob. “Helping people achieve what they want out of life, and seeing them hit their targets is, to me, one of the most rewarding things in this life. North American Power’s combination of integrity, compensation, charitable giving, and green energy made them the right company for us to hit those targets with.”

    The Firing Squad

    in Culture

    “Real journalism is publishing something someone else does not want published – the rest is just public relations.” George Orwell


    With so much drama in the world today in our communities on both macro and micro levels, it’s always strange to see the news or people that claim to be journalists talking about all kinds of silly things and never what’s going on. The Firing Squad is here to take aim at all that is wrong with the world, starting with our own communities.

    Three men of color with no censor and no objectives but truth, justice and common sense. Each episode will deal with hot-button issues with honesty, straight talk, and humor whenever possible . No personality is untouchable, and no one is spared the venom, or the praise whenever fit.


    The format fo the show is simple five topics a week with 5 minutes devoted to each topic, and a close by each individual member featuring a verbal shot of their own choosing.

    For over four hundred years the Stolen Afrikan in AmeriKKKa has been robbed of the ancestry, their Afrikan spirituality, their science and their Story, they have been uprooted and are quickly dying. 
    The results of governmental institutional racism & genocide are chaotic; single parent households, unwed mothers, incarceration coupled with mis-education and the under educated have practically destroyed the black family. Their right minds are being destroyed with religion, drug addition, the prison & education system.
    The continuous bombardments of the court systems manipulation and negative media influence have taken a toll targeted on black children, men and women.
    Society has brainwashed the black women into believing that they don't need their black men. 


    Our women don't believe this because they refuse to see their own reflection, which is their black man because society has convinced the black females to destroy the only true hope for their survival....The Black Man!
    The Black Lions are here to help our women experience the presence of a man so they do not try to defunct his true nature.


    The Black Lions are here to take back our communities, businesses, families & kin our children and our women.


    ...Maybe then our black women will discover that A Black Man was all she really needed in the first place.

  • Mondays at 8:00 - Authors Supporting Authors Presents Wesley Godfather Hunter

    in Writing

    Times: 8:00 pm EST / 9:00 AST. Please check the time in your time zone.


    Welcome to our Mondays at 8:00: Authors Supporting Authors series, brought to you as a joint project by authors April Thomas and Etienne A. Gibbs. Each week we shall interview authors about their work and the disciple behind their writing. Call 646-721-9611 during the show with your questions or comments.


    This week's author: Wesley “Godfather” Hunter


    Born and raised in the streets of Los Angeles, Mr. Wesley “Godfather” Hunter began his journey of gang-banging and crime at a very youthful age. By age 10 he’d already experienced his first arrest and stay in a jail cell. By the age of 12 he’d begun a career of incarceration, which has kept him physically imprisoned for most of his life. Yet, even in this, life has not left him bitter and he continues to strive, finding the strength within himself to overcome against the odds.


    Now a 32 year-old aspiring author, currently incarcerated in the California Dept. of Corrections where he is serving out the remainder of a 20 year sentence for commercial armed robbery and 2 counts of attempted murder on sheriff’s deputies, Wesley has used his time wisley. Devoted to spreading the word of change/love and self-respect in his works and titles, he spends most of his time focused on positive writings, thoughts and goals geared towards improving himself, and giving something back to society in the form of insight, experience, and wisdom.


    Mr. Godfather has written several novels and an autobiography but has since established his own Urban Diamonds Publishing to release his latest titles. He has started a youth help organization, “The Raw Truth”, to bring forth through the inner city churches and other youth-related programs.
