    Black Woman: The Original God(dess)

    in Culture

    There is undisputable proof that the human race originated in Afrika. We now know that all humans can trace their roots to a family in Afrika. We know that the first mother is an african woman. the beautiful black queen is the original woman, the mother and creator of us all.  The Black woman, the original Goddess.


    Unfortunately,  the world has forgotten or denies who we are.  WE have forgotten who we are.  How does the world see us?  How do we see ourselves, Goddess or slave?

    From The Front Porch with Professor Carl Tone Jones

    in History

    This week on The Porch we will be interviewing Christopher Everett, writer and director of the upcoming documentary, Wilmington On Fire.....


    WILMINGTON ON FIRE is a feature-length documentary that will give a historical and present day look at the Wilmington Massacre of 1898. The Wilmington Massacre of 1898 was a bloody attack on the African-American community by a heavily armed white mob with the support of the North Carolina Democratic Party on November 10, 1898 in the port city of Wilmington, North Carolina. It is considered one of the only successful examples of a violent overthrow of an existing government (coup d'etat) and left countless numbers of African-American citizens dead and exiled from the city. This event was the spring board for the white supremacy movement and Jim Crow Segregation throughout the state of North Carolina, and the American South. This incident is barely mentioned and has been omitted from most history books. It was not until 2006, after the North Carolina General Assembly published a report on it, that the tragedy became known to the public. The film features interviews from historians, authors, activists and descendants of the victims of the Wilmington Massacre of 1898. © 2011 Christopher Everett


    Be sure to tune in this week as we discuss the next important documentary to drop as we continue unvail how the system of white supremacy sprung new roots from this act of macabre.

    World history of Abolitionism

    in Politics Conservative

    When thinking about the history of slavery one tends to think about the abolitionist movement. Generally speaking when we thing about this movement we tend to think about the Quakers and          their impact in the USA and perhaps beyond and rightly so.


    While it’s true the Quakers did much toward ending slavery I content the abolitionist movement started about the time Jesus of Nazareth ascended into Heaven. Paul’s Epistle to Timothy clearly illustrates the picture of a disdain for owning a human being.  Paul explains whey we have the law;


    “the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for murderers, for the sexually immoral, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine that conforms to the gospel. (I paraphrase).


    This then becomes a clarion call to the world actually that slavery was an abomination to God. That as Christians we can not abide by a person owning another person. This of course was taken seriously by both believers and non believers alike. To the non believer who owned slaves he saw an enemy of his enterprises. To the believer they came to truly understand what Paul meant when he said;


     In speaking to the Athenians, Paul stated that God "has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings" (Acts 17:26). We are all descendants of Adam. While we are divided between different nations and languages, we are all the same -- human beings created by the hand of God.

    Historic Black Town, Boley OK, Fended OFF “Pretty Boy” Floyd’s Bank Robbers

    in Culture

    Listen to The Gist of Freedom tonight as we talk with Jennifer Nelson a descendant of the historical black town, Boley OK.


    One of the first nationally chartered black-owned banks, Farmers and Merchants Bank in Boley, Oklahoma, an all-black town successfully fended off “Pretty Boy” Floyd’s Bank Robber's Gang!


     ON NOVEMBER 23, 1932, three members of Charles A. “Pretty Boy” Floyd’s gang made the worst mistake of their lives. They tried to rob the state’s first nationally chartered black-owned bank Farmers and Merchants Bank in Boley, Ok, an all-black town of proud-walking pioneers.


    Up to that point, the Floyd gang had been robbing an average of a bank a week, usually without any resistance.


    Gangster Floyd  had warned his gang members against robbing the Boley bank because, the people of Boley all had guns, knew how to shoot them and weren't afraid to use them.  Photos: Boley Council Members, Boley Bank,  SEMINOLE NEGRO INDIAN SCOUTS _


    They didn't heed Floyd's warning and Birdwell and Patterson, armed burst into the bank early that morning.  announced they were robbing the bank and warned "don't pull no alarm."


    The bank's  Bookkeeper McCormick, saw the robbers enter.  He slipped into the bank's vault, retrieved the rifle and aimed it at Birdwell who was scooping up cash.


    At the same time, the Bank's president D.J. Turner,  was on duty. He loved Boley and was determined to defend it.


    When the alarm began wailing Birdwell hollered, "Did you pull that alarm?" "Sure I did," Turner answered.


    Gangster Birdwell shot and Turner fell mortally wounded. McCormick, in turn, shot the second gang member, Birdwell to death.

    sIgNoThEtImEs w Queen Tahiyrah FEATURED LISTEN IN SESSION Dr. Joy Degruy PTSS

    in Motivation

    Tonight as a part of our 90 Day Blackout of Main Stream Media & HIP HOP, we are featuring the lecture by Dr. Joy Degruy called Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome from her book of the same title.


    On her website, Dr. Joy describes PTSS as the following:


    POST TRAUMATIC SLAVE SYNDROME As a result of twelve years of quantitative and qualitative research Dr. DeGruy has developed her theory of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome, and published her findings in the book Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome - America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing”. The book addresses the residual impacts of generations of slavery and opens up the discussion of how the black community can use the strengths we have gained in the past to heal in the present.


    WHAT IS P.T.S.S.?
    P.T.S.S. is a theory that explains the etiology of many of the adaptive survival behaviors in African American communities throughout the United States and the Diaspora. It is a condition that exists as a consequence of multigenerational oppression of Africans and their descendants resulting from centuries of chattel slavery. A form of slavery which was predicated on the belief that African Americans were inherently/genetically inferior to whites. This was then followed by institutionalized racism which continues to perpetuate injury.


    Thus, resulting in M.A.P.:



    M: Multigenerational trauma together with continued oppression;
    A: Absence of opportunity to heal or access the benefits available in the society; leads to
    P: Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome

    Answers From Genesis, Part 7 & 8

    in Christianity

    This ongoing dilemma is one of the reasons we continue addressing some of the questions young people have about the book of Genesis. Of course, even apart from that, this book that lays the foundation for the rest of Scripture merits a lot of attention. Some believe the Table of Nations in Genesis 10 is mostly fictional. Are they right? Genesis 10 traces the genealogies of mankind after the Flood through the descendants of Noah’s three sons up to shortly before the time of the Hebrew patriarch Abraham.

    ODWIRA: Adebisa - Divination and Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) in America

    in Education

    In this episode of ODWIRA we discuss adebisa, divination, in relation to Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) in america.


    Divination or spiritual consultation is an integral component of all expressions of Nanasom, Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion, wherever Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People) are found in the world. This includes Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) in North, Central and South Amaruka (america) and the Caribbean today who are descendants of those who were taken from Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa) during the Mmusuo Kese (Great Perversity/Enslavement era), yet survived, waged war against the white slavers and liberated ourselves. 


    We examine our publications:
