    Black Abolitionists, Book by Benjamin Quarles Chapter 9 Vigilance Committe


    Noted historian, scholar, and educator Benjamin Author Quarles was born in Boston, Massachusetts on January 23, 1904. 


    A prolific writer, Quarles published ten books, twenty-three major articles, and hundreds of shorter pieces of various sorts.  At least four of his books attained national significance:  Frederick Douglass (1948), which grew out of his doctoral research and remains the authoritative source for most of what is known about Douglass; The Negro in the American Revolution (1961), one of the first books to demonstrate the importance of including African Americans in the mainstream narratives of U.S. history; The Negro in the Making of America (1964), a text used in courses throughout the country; and Black Abolitionists (1969), a book that helped propel a major reassessment of the anti-slavery movement. 


    David Ruggles advocated for self-defense and the need for African Americans to organize and establish their own "remedy" for justice. In 1835, Ruggles and other black abolitionists formed the Committee of Vigilance (A hybrid of The Black Panthers and The NAACP) to protect free blacks and recently escaped slaves and to fight slave catchers and kidnappers.


    As David Ruggles, a leading black abolitionist, made clear in this 1836 account of a kidnapping, African Americans could not count on the police, the courts, or anti-slavery organizations.


    Richard Riker (Rikers Island named after him) [1773-1842]
    A lawyer and eventual judge who saw us on the lowest social level possible. Adipta writes, "When seven-year-old schoolboy Henry Scott was seized as a fugitive slave from his classroom, the kidnappers forcibly brought the terrified child before Richard Riker, the magistrate of New York City. They claimed that the boy was property belonging to white slaver.

They were such a big hit that people traveled from all over NY to attend. An all-black theatre troupe and company grew out these tea garden performances.

    Listen to socio-political analyst Cleo Manago discuss 2 cops shot in Ferguson

    in Culture

    Listen to socio-political analyst Cleo Manago discuss, Two officers shot in Ferguson... Don't Shoot Them Down, Shut Them Down! 


    Two cops were shot in front of the Ferguson Police Department early Thursday. The shots were fired just as a small crowd of protesters began to break up after holding a demonstration in the wake of the resignation of the Ferguson police chief, who stepped down Wednesday.


    St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said one officer was shot in the face, just below his right eye, with the bullet lodging behind his ear. The other officer was hit in the shoulder, and the bullet came out his back.


    ------As the Department of Justice prepares to release its full report into the Ferguson Police Department and Municipal Court System, it is becoming increasingly clear that the entire Ferguson Police Department may be forced to shut down.


    Local authorities consistently approached law enforcement not as a means for protecting public safety, but as a way of generating revenue,” Holder said, adding that “racial bias both implicit and explicit” results in the unconstitutional execution of the law.


     


    The thing is, though, the last department that Darren Wilson worked for, before he was allowed to transfer to the Ferguson Police Department, was also disbanded over severe issues of racism and corruption.

    "An Indigenous Peoples' History of the U.S.", author Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz

    in Education

    Today on The Gist of Freedom at 2:30 please join guest host William Katz and author Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz for a lively discussion about her latest book


    "An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States"


    WWW.BlackHistoryblog.com  archived on iTunes www.BlackHistoryUniversity.com
    -----------------------


    The first history of the United States told from the perspective of indigenous peoples
     
    Today in the United States, there are more than five hundred federally recognized Indigenous nations comprising nearly three million people, descendants of the fifteen million Native people who once inhabited this land. The centuries-long genocidal program of the US settler-colonial regimen has largely been omitted from history. Now, for the first time, acclaimed historian and activist Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz offers a history of the United States told from the perspective of Indigenous peoples and reveals how Native Americans, for centuries, actively resisted expansion of the US empire.


    And as Dunbar-Ortiz reveals, this policy was praised in popular culture, through writers like James Fenimore Cooper and Walt Whitman, and in the highest offices of government and the military. Shockingly, as the genocidal policy reached its zenith under President Andrew Jackson, its ruthlessness was best articulated by US Army general Thomas S. Jesup, who, in 1836, wrote of the Seminoles: “The country can be rid of them only by exterminating them.”
     
    Spanning more than four hundred years, this classic bottom-up peoples’ history radically reframes US history and explodes the silences that have haunted our national narrative.

    2. “The problem with the US educational system is that it rewards students for answering questions they never asked”.

    A Prophetic Time For A Prophetic Season- Conclusion

    in Women

    Divine Reversal and Release
    Earlier this month while in prayer the Holy Spirit spoke to me about a divine reversal and release that is blowing in the earth. I saw a two fold whirlwind blowing throughout this nation and in the earth. A whirlwind that was causing both reversals and release. As the whirlwind brought forth reversal, it caused destruction upon the wicked, and set forth a righteous release for God's people. In this whirlwind I saw and heard about land, settlements , properties, liens and inheritances being released. I saw judgements being revoked as the prophetic wind of God blew. As God's people positioned themselves in His presence, long awaited prayers were answered suddenly. I saw supernatural provisions being made as old cycles, seasons, behaviors were severed. I saw the word "shemittah" blazing like fire and I heard again, " Divine Reversal and Release." This is a year of covenant connections and a completion of cycles, IF we will yield ourselves to the Lord. We are in a very strategic time where we shall witness judgement and justice at hand throughout the land. Many shall come from building Pharaoh's house and build the kingdom house of the Lord. Many souls are crying out for salvation and restoration,and God shall cause the spirit ears of those who are of a new breed to hear, go,and occupy. They shall be as a recovery agent in the earth, marked by the Holy Spirit and guided by holiness. God shall strategically send and set these vessels in uncommon places and release an anointing for true transformation to occur. As greater darkness increases in the earth, we must remain focused on the glory of God. We shall see some of the worst days throughout the earth, but the best times of God's glory being revealed. What God is releasing unto His people isn't for selfish gain but for the glorious kingdom mandate that shall usher in a greater expansion and takeover throughout the earth.

    PUSH MY STORY WITH PASTOR LIVINGSTON, CHRISTIAN RADIO ICON

    in Christianity

    Take what's legally & rightly belongs to you and possession of owership...FOLLOWING THROUGH THE PLAN..WAIT YOUR TURN, YOUR BLESSING IS ON THE WAY... 


    Now since the Lord, the God of Israel, has driven the Amorites out before his people Israel, what right have you to take it over? Will you not take what your god Chemosh gives you? Likewise, whatever the Lord our God has given us, we will possess. Are you any better than Balak son of Zippor, king of Moab? Did he ever quarrel with Israel or fight with them? For three hundred years Israel occupied Heshbon, Aroer, the surrounding settlements and all the towns along the Arnon. Why didn’t you retake them during that time? I have not wronged you, but you are doing me wrong by waging war against me. Let the Lord, the Judge, decide the dispute this day between the Israelites and the Ammonites.”  JUDGE 11: 23-
