SORT BY Relevancy
The Gist of Freedom www.BlackHistoryUniversity.com is pleased to present to you the audio book of Harriet Jacobs, an African American abolitionist! Mrs. Jacobs became active in the antislavery movement, and at the urging of several female abolitionists, she wrote “Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl,” which was published in 1860. Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, is a powerful depiction of the sexual abuse of female slaves.
Harriet Jacobs would thwart repeated sexual advancements made by slavers for years, then escape to the North. She would later publish an account of her anguished life in her autobiography, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl.
Harriet had previously asked Norcom for permission to marry a free black man. Norcom had violently refused. Now Harriet had a plan to disrupt his fight for sexual conquest: She had become friends with a caring white man -- an unmarried lawyer. She would become sexually involved with this man, become pregnant, and an infuriated Norcom would sell her and her child.
A child was conceived. The harassment continued even after she bore the lawyer another child. Finally, after she learned that Norcom was preparing to put her children to work as plantation slaves, she had had enough. In June of 1835, after seven years of mistreatment, Harriet escaped.
Harriet was actively involved with the abolition movement before the launch of the Civil War. During the war she used her celebrity to raise money for black refugees. After the war she worked to improve the conditions of the recently-freed slaves.
Sisters in the Struggle
This week we will discuss the wonderful and gifted sisters who dedicated themselves to liberating and uplifting the Melanated family. From slavery to present day activists, we will take a look at the lives and work of some of our best and brightest female freedom fighters.
Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri Thursday October 29 at 9 PM EST as we review the work of our brave sisters who championed our cause when hesitation and fear were not uncommon. We devote this two hour tribute to our beautiful and talented sisters who valued our freedom more than their comfort. Women who were leaders and heroes that overcame incredible odds and obstacles to leave us a legacy of how effort and courage can change history.

Will Paul Ryan be speaker of the house or not? Did trump predict 911 from Osama bin Laden 19 months before? Also the church and state seperation comments on the view my thoughts and things I have said in the past that sum up all the issues brought out in that conversation. It is nice to see people on the right and left talking about people who are fed up with the government as a whole. Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) had harsh words for Tea Party Republicans during a town hall he hosted Tuesday in New York City. Is this man on crack my thoughts on his comments and no punches will be pulled. Harriet Tubman is poised to be on the new 20 dollar bill and already people are waiting for the racist people to go off about that. Will the Cubs make it past the mets to make it to the 2015 WS. Also Man United after a 3-nil over Everton moving forward thoughts on the team keep the win streak going. That and much much more so join me for the conversation your apart of.

Join us Friday September 25, 2015 as we discuss the subject of "Women in Support of #JusticeOrElse". Our featured guest will be an MGT from Charlotte, NC, Sister Andrea Muhammad. She is known for bringing recognition for Women who support #JusticeorElse. Throughout the year of 2015, since the announcement of #JusticeOrElse, many have been in support of the movement. Only a few have been concerned, worried and even against the idea of demanding "Justice" from the Justice Department of the United States of America. Women have always been on the front lines of the Black struggle in North America. Originating from the likes of Harriet Tubman to modern day women like Dr. Ava Muhammad, Yonasda Lonewolf, Tamika Mallory and the late Sandra Bland (who paid with her life for what she believed). We will celebrate and encourage women who support #JusticeOrElse in this episode:

Dark Skin, Light Skin, Straight Hair, Nappy Hair: Do Black Men Reinforce A Color Caste System For Wo
Viola Davis, last nights Emmy winner for Best Actress In Dramatic Series, gave a historic dramatic speech in which she quoted Harriet Tubman, and thanked the writers and actresses that enabled her to "cross the line" and win an honor formerly accessible only to white women. Previously, when actress Lupita Nyong'o won an Oscar for her role in Twelve Years A Slave, she expressed many of the same sentiments. Is color and hair texture still an issue when it comes to defining womanhood? In chapter four of The Female Solution we discuss the politics behind how women define themselves. It comes down to a battle of genetics. Whose physical traits represent the good people, the smart people, the pretty people? We know of the white doll/ black doll experiment, in which little black girls, when given a choice, selected the white doll as the one that was good, smart, and pretty, and said the black doll was bad, dumb and ugly. How do we talk about that painful reality in African American culture, so we can face and correct the widespread, self-perpetuated color caste system that leaves so many African Americans emotionally scarred?

Julianna Baggott has been writing for 14 years and has 22 books in print, some of them best sellers. That on its own is impressive, but add to that they were Put out by publishing houses, not self-published. Then add in that she was raising three small children for most of that time. Prolific may be an understatement.
She also writes under the pen names Bridget Asher and N.E. Bode. Ms. Asher writes more for women and N.E. Bode (pronounced body) writes for ages 8-13.
Julianna talks with us this week about how that all happened and about her process, and about her most recent book, Harriet Wolf's Seventh Book of Wonders. It takes place mostly in the Baltimore area and talks about some well known institutions here, like what used to be called the Home for Feeble Minded Children, and later, as Rosewood.
We hear all the time about weight gain, weight loss, how Americans are the heaviest we’ve ever been, and myriad plans for remedying our egregious fatness. And yet…what if a lot of what we’re told and what we believe simply isn’t true? Award-winning writer Harriet Brown set out to explore our relentless obsession with weight and thinness—with surprising results. In Body of Truth, Brown tackles the myths and realities of the “obesity epidemic,” exposing the biggest lies driving the rhetoric of obesity. With provocative prose and razor-sharp wit, she examines our tendency to find weight scapegoats (sugar and wheat are the current favorites), gives historical and contemporary context for what it means to be “fat” (making a strong case that it’s not a dirty word), and offers ways for all of us to think about weight and health with more nuance, accuracy, and respect. In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host June Stoyer talks to Harriet Brown author of the best-selling book, Body of Truth, How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight--and What We Can Do About It.
