    Forging Freedom: Amrita Chakrabarti Myers, Ph.D.

    in History

    Forging Freedom: Black Women and the Pursuit of Liberty in Antebellum Charleston


    For black women in antebellum Charleston, freedom was not a static legal category but a fragile and contingent experience. A deeply researched social history, Forging Freedom reveals the ways in which black women in Charleston acquired, defined, and defended their own vision of freedom.


    Drawing on legislative and judicial materials, probate data, tax lists, church records, family papers, and more, Myers creates detailed portraits of individual women while exploring how black female Charlestonians sought to create a fuller freedom by improving their financial, social, and legal standing. Examining both those who were officially manumitted and those who lived as free persons but lacked official documentation, Myers reveals that free black women filed lawsuits and petitions, acquired property (including slaves), entered into contracts, paid taxes, earned wages, attended schools, and formed familial alliances with wealthy and powerful men, black and white--all in an effort to solidify and expand their freedom. Never fully free, black women had to depend on their skills of negotiation in a society dedicated to upholding both slavery and patriarchy. Forging Freedom thus examines the many ways in which Charleston's black women crafted a freedom of their own design instead of accepting the limited existence imagined for them by white Southerners.


    Amrita Chakrabarti Myers earned her doctorate in American History from Rutgers University. A historian of the black female experience, she is interested in race, gender, sexuality, rights, freedom, and citizenship and the ways in which these constructs intersect with one another in the lives of black women in the Old South. She is currently Associate Professor of History and Gender Studies at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.

    New York Times Best Selling Author Celebrity Marilu Henner

    in Books

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview New York Times Best Selling Author Celebrity  Marilu Henner. She will discuss her latest book Changing Normal: How I Helped My Husband Beat Cancer.


    The New York Times bestselling author and beloved actor from the sitcom Taxi, Marilu Henner delivers an intimate account of how she and her husband stood together and triumphed.


    After they’d been dating only a short while, and as they were falling madly in love, Marilu Henner and Michael Brown were hit with the ultimate bad news: Michael was diagnosed with cancer. Refusing traditional care, they pieced together a personal and holistic view on battling his cancer, all while forging an unbreakable bond.


    In this moving and informative book, Marilu pulls back the curtain on how they dealt with the blow. She relates her holistic perspective on health—including the superfoods, exercises, and immunotherapy they used to fight back—and why a diagnosis doesn’t have to be the end of romance or of a happy and fulfilling life. Takeaways, tips, and practical advice make this a useful guide for anyone working to sustain a relationship through the adversity of disease.


    Written with an engaging voice, a sense of humor, and life-changing wisdom, Changing Normal is a personal and touching look at how Marilu and Michael faced down a cancer diagnosis and came out the other side happier, healthier, and more in love than ever.

    in Spirituality

    If you are seeking a deeper understanding of yourself and your life experience, if you are wanting to find a moral to your story, if you’re looking for meaning in a life that doesn’t seem meaningful, if you’re hurting and you don’t want to anymore, If you’re depressed and angry and you don’t want to be that anymore….Tune in to tonight’s show to learn how to make art from your suffering.


    Irma Francis, Life Coach & Spiritual Mentor & Ernie Vecchio, Psychologist, Author & Spiritual Teacher delve into a deep conversation about how to suffer and the art of living through it.


    Suffering: forging the human ego to release its hold on our hearts....ultimately sets the soul free to breathe as intended--with ease. Curiously, what remains of an ego forged-- ends up becoming an artifact, an outdated piece of who I 'thought' I was. I think artifacts such as these are valuable.  ~Vecchio
