The story of Maroon communities in the Americas is one of the most important and fascinating chapters in the history of New World societies. However, it is a story that is not well known. Scholarly research and forensic archaeology are increasingly uncovering the evidence of Maroon settlements that have been a part of the US from the 1600s until the 1900s, but were hidden in plain view. Not only is little known about Maroon encampments established throughout the southern US, but our history books include little trace of the agency of Africans, who were forcibly brought to the US and enslaved, but employed military and diplomatic strategies in international relations, represented Native nations in negotiations with the US government, launched cottage industries, and built lasting communities long before the end of the Civil War.
Over Two hundred years ago, while the elite in New Orleans were making their usual preparations for Mardi Gras. Plantation owners were planning all-night parties, and the women of the house were looking forward to elaborate masquerades and balls.
What they didn't know is while they were planning for their annual carnival festivities, their slaves were planning a little something of their own.
On one fateful night, 500 armed slaves rose up from the plantations and set out to conquer the city.
Join The Gist of Freedom as we listen to Chapter 6, Music for Jesus Lyrics of Freedom and a lively discussion with Pan-Africanist Dr. Sidney and Pianki. Evangelical preaching had caused some whites to question the justness of slavery, but still more were all the more careful to censor what messages from the Bible slaves could hear. Born in 1800, Nat Turner was identified as a bright youth who developed a zeal for Scripture, though this did not prevent his masters from employing him merely as a common field hand. Turner also became a preacher to slaves from surrounding plantations and farms, preaching against slavery to his brethren but carefully keeping up the appearance of the respectful, dutiful slave to whites. Turner’s spirituality and reputation took on a mystical quality as an adult, and during this time he secretly began dreaming of revolution, believing God had specially chosen him to smite the institution of slavery. Because previous conspiracies had been discovered when members had informed on them, Turner developed his plans for revolt only among four trusted followers. He and his confederates struck on August 21, 1831, slaughtering white men, women, and children using axes and other ad hoc weapons.
"I'm for truth, no matter who tells it.
I'm for justice, no matter who it is for or against.
I'm a human being
first and foremost, and as such
I'm for whoever and whaatever benefits
as a whole."

Michael Row the Boat Ashore
"Michael, Row the Boat Ashore" is an African-american spiritual. It was first noted during the American Civil War at St. Helena Island, one of the Sea Islands of South Carolina, USA.
The song was sung by former slaves whose owners had abandoned the island before the Union navy arrived to enforce a blockade. Charles Pickard Ware, an abolitionist and Harvard graduate who had come to supervise the plantations on St. Helena Island wrote the song down in music notation as he heard the freedmen sing.
The lyric describes the simple crossing of the River Jordan with macabre undertones provided by reference to trumpets, eternal life and unknown lands. Despite its deathly connotations the song is affirming, a celebration of faith under oppression.

The Dark Side of Chocolate was produced by Danish journalist Miki Mistrati who investigated the use of child labor and trafficked children in chocolate production. It is filmed by U. Roberto Romano. The filming started in Germany, where Mistrati asked vendors where their chocolate comes from. They then flew to Mali, where many of the children are from. Next, they explored the Ivory Coast where the cocoa plantations are located. The film ends in Switzerland where both the International Labor Organization (ILO) and the Nestle headquarters are located. Much of the footage in this documentary is recorded using a secret camera. The documentary was released in 2010, first in Denmark, and later in Sweden, Ireland, Belgium, and Norway.
Jews played a significant role in the slave trade in the United States. The Nation of Islam uncovered documents showing Jews built massive cotton marketing businesses, owning thousands of acres of plantations. Indeed, much of the slave-picked cotton produced in the Mississippi Delta region was marketed internationally by Jewish merchants. Indisputably, Blacks picked the cotton. Jews simultaneously established their dominance in the needle trades or textiles industry, the banking industry, as well as a significant—even if little known—role in the formation of labor unions, which allowed them to exercise control over jobs and contracts.
As a matter of fact, two great books detailing the Jewish involvement in slavery in the U.S., was written and published by the Nation of Islam, under the leadership of the Great Minister Louis Farrakhan. Per the FinalCall.com "Published in 1991, The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Volume One, set off ideological tremors resulting in denunciations, and chaotic scrambles into the archives of Jewish historical literature by those hoping to debunk its claims. They were unsuccessful, and quietly, the assertions that Jews were merely co-sufferers or innocent bystanders in the trans-Atlantic slave trade have been silenced. The Nation of Islam's Historical Research Department has followed up with the highly anticipated Volume 2 in a series of scholarly volumes, this one under the subtitle How Jews Gained Control of the Black American Economy."

African Americans are on everybodies minds these days.From the deepest bush in Africa to the Eskimo and to the average White Americans.But it seems no one really knows who we are after countless movies,documentaries,news reports,history books,museums ect.No one knows us at all.Tonight we will prove this.We will talk about the attacks on the Honorable Dr Umar Johnson as he is dedicated his life for the betterment of our people,by rouge hippos in the Black Lesbian community parroting for their Liberal Establishment benefactors.I believe this college he wants to build is essential to realizing our vision for a nation of our own.The fact that he is being attacked and Pan Africanism and any Black empowerment,traditionalism and Black culture are also being attacked.
Tonight we will introduce new termonolgy.Establishment Media and how to identify whether a blogger is a plant of the Establishment Media or are they part of the grassroot activism.There is an effort to silence Black alternative media,in order to incorporate it into the Left or Right Wing Establishment Media's agenda.So who are we?What is our purpose?Are we to live on the Democrat or Republican Plantations forever?Tonight we may have an important guest on.Mr David Alexander Hitt of the IAAC to discuss nationalism in 2014.
We had a great interview with noted economist and author Richard Duncan yesterday. While he advocates a pragmatic view and acceptance of the status quo and abandonment of our ideals and capitalism, I can't accept that. Expecting the government to make successful bets on future technologies is a long shot that is destined to fail. Rather we need to find a way back to our roots and sound money and to mitigate the inevitable damage, because either way, pain is going to occur.
Speaking of failure of the existing paradigm there's Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. That's the actual name of the Ocean State. And they had a referendum in 2010 because some people believed it was racist. Plantation in English meant colony. But they have far greater problems, the state is a Stalinist Theme Park. It's an epic fail. Liberalism and Progressivism have had their way since 1935 and the place is falling apart. And the people are too arrogant or stupid or both to see it.
Then there's that other epic fail, Detroit. What to try next? Perhaps urban homesteading. Knocking down all 40,000 abandoned homes will only cost $850 million or $22k each. Sounds like a steal! Why not have an Uber wrecking App and have a Dutch Auction? These homes are truly worth more dead than alive.
