C.J. Chenier was literally born into the musical tradition of southwest Louisiana and Texas Zydeco, a chugging, accordion-led blend of French Creole and African-derived influences. Born the son of great Zydeco king Clifton Chenier, the first Grammy Award winning musician of his genre, C.J. was totally immersed in R&B, funk and jazz from childhood. Despite his family ties, or maybe because of them, C.J. wasn't terribly interested in his father's music as a teenager. A natural player, C.J. won a scholarship to study music at Texas Southern University and spent his college years exploring his own musical style.

Some of The Africans and African Americans today have the mistaken impression that only a small amount of Freedmen returned to Africa. Now with the awful tribal wars going on from the Cape to Ciro we see Xenophobic attacks against not just tribal Africans but against children of former enslaved Africans from America. Some one has told them that the are pure blood African and with these Americans coming to Africa now in the 21st century we will pollute their gene pool and take over their country. One continental African had the nerve to write on Facebook "there is a reason we sold you into slavery". Yes there were several poor excuses that greedy corrupt individuals sold their own race into slavery but I am sure that in the eyes of God Allah none of them will hold water. The first account of Africans being sold into slavery was the Arab Slave trade. In the 1600's Africans again sold into slavery on the West Coast were sold from the French colonies and began with the Creole of Senegal because they wanted to make sure no children of the White colonizers would rule, another flimsy excuse to steal land and property. There has never been an account of Slavery being imposed as a way to depose unfit rulers, criminal elements, or cannibalism.

THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
Most of us consider ourselves ordinary people capable of doing ordinary things in life. But, life is a series of peaks and valleys. Sometimes we are up, sometimes we are down. This is considered normal. But, what happens when our lives are no longer ordinary and difficult times really set in? The most common advice is not to dwell in silence. According to Wendy Mogel, PhD, a clinical psychologist based in Los Angeles and the author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee, "Obstacles, setbacks, and losses are a vital part of experiencing the fullness, and even sweetness of life." However, sometimes in order to survive and thrive, we must also find a way to "push" ourselves through difficult times in our life. In her new novel, Myra Jolivet eloquently tells a suspense-filled story, wrapped around a Creole expression, "pushed times make a monkey chew pepper."

Louisiana food is distinctive created from more than 300 years of food traditions that combines influences from Mexico to Africa, Europe and Native American cultures. Gumbo is a dish that combines two or more meats or seafood that combines influences from African, European and Native American cultures.
The name comes from the Bantu word for okra, a fiberous plant that is eaten in soups, stews, fried, sauteed and steamed.
Gumbo is also a perfect example of what makes Louisiana food unique and it tells a story of where you come from. Made with seafood, your from the coast. With meats like venisor or squirrel, your family has a history of hunters and living form the land. Gumbo is normally served with rice, but if you spoon it over potato salad, your heritage comes from Germany.
Join guest host Jim Picht along with Lousianians Bill and Laura Weatherford, all Louisianian foodies ready to talk Gumbo to King's Cake.

Louisana's Creole culture and a famed New Orleans' neighborhood share the spotlight on today's show. Our Creole cultural exploration takes us just outside New Orleans to the Old Mississippe River Road where we'll share the story of a Creole family and a plantation named Laura--voted "Best history tour in the USA" by Lonely Planet Travel and a top travel attraction in Louisiana. Laura Plantation, named after Laura Locoul Gore, is an old sugarcane plantation over 200 years old. We experienced life on the plantation as a member of the Locoul family through the voice of one of Laura's decendents, Norman Marmillion. We will also visit Faubourg Treme with filmmaker Dawn Logsdon. Treme is considered the oldest black neighborhood in America and the birthplace of the civil rights movement in the South. Treme is a place where African-Americans lived free during slavery and became a place of social and economic diversity.
