JuneTeenth is about the lives of people from the mother land, Africa who became Americans, not by immigration by by trade and thievery. Africa, the documented earliest home to all mankind. Africa, the land of over 800 languages and 5 major types of people. Negroids, Pygmpoids, Bushmanoids, Caucasoids and Mongoloids. It was in Africa where the salve trade was established. It was on the coast of West Africa in the mid 1400's by the Portuguese. It is said the first Africans were captivies in their home lands and were traded for goods to people who came in ships from other countries. The trade of Africans for goods would become the thievery of Africans and this would go on 1400's to mid 1800's and would become known as the slave trade. Africans were taken into other countries and used as slaves. It is estimated that at it's peak africans were being stolen from West Africa at an average of 100,000 to 130,000 a year. Most of these Africans were brought to America. Before I explain the timeline of Juneteenth, please take time and listen to my 2013 JuneTeenth show. And I'll talk to you on this show about the slave revolt in America which was the beginning of freedom of the once African slaves. Rebellion to Revolution

JuneTeenth is a celebration of freedom. An American celebration of freedom. A new beginning. It was JuneTeenth 1865, 2 1/2 years after slavery was no longer legal in America, that General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, TX to free the last American slaves. Texas seceded because of the intent to keep slaves. After all, slaves were property. Texans wasn't letting even the federal government take away their property. It took an army to free the last slaves. Freedom still had and still has prices to be paid. Bills were passed to help the freed slaves. But White men protested helping the now freed "Negroes". White men said helping freed slaves would only cause the Negroes to not want to sustain themselves. Ignorance of what. Today, the same statements are made. We work for little money. The results is working poor qualify for food stamps and other support services. Then GOP says poor people are not contributing to this country. Similar statements were made today by congress rep. Newt said poor children does not know anything about working for money. Newt said no one works in poor communities. These are words from the days of freedom for slaves. Slaves worked and built farms, companies, railroads, roads and byways. Slaves cooked, cleaned, raised animals, raised masters children, cared for livestock, created tools, with work skills the learned in Africa. Knowledge proved powerful. For the works of the slaves helped slaves to purchase their families and buy their own freedom. After all, . the greed of the White Wealthy Men reigned over all else. As is today for too many. JuneTeenth we celebrate a coming of age for America. Not just freedom of slaves. For a chain cannot be any stronger than its weakest link America. Together we stand. Divided we fall.
On this day June 19, 1865, emancipation was finally granted to the remaining slaves in the rebellious state of Texas. Two and a half years after Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves in the confederate states, the hold out White plantation owners grudgingly and reluctantly gave in to the pressures of the US government, but held onto the racial hatred embedded in their hearts.
Fast forward to 2006, a short eight years ago, when Black financial tycoon, Mellody Hobson, was mistaken for kitchen help while in New York City on a campaign fundraising trip for Harold Ford. The manager who made that awful blunder needed to clean out the cobwebs and realize that Black people have significantly advanced since the rough-shod days of our Civil War past.
Mellody recently created a TED Talk about her experience, urging her audience to move from being color blind to becoming color brave. We’ll talk about this lingering issue with veteran consultant and former Chair of the National Black MBA Association Bill Wells, Jr.
It’s an American issue that simply won’t go away.
The Ku Klux Klan was originally organized in the winter of 1865-66 in Pulaski, Tennessee as a social club by six Confederate veterans. In the beginning, the Klan was a secret fraternity club. (Ku Klux was derived from the Greek "kuklos," meaning circle, and the English word clan.) The costume adopted by its members (disguises were quite common) was a mask and white robe and high conical pointed hat.
According to the founders of the Klan, it had no malicious intent in the beginning. It attracted former Civil War generals such as Nathan Bedford Forrest, the famed cavalry commander whose soldiers murdered captured black troops at Fort Pillow.The Klan spread beyond Tennessee to every state in the South and included mayors, judges, and sheriffs as well as common criminals. The Klan systematically murdered black politicians and political leaders. It beat, whipped, and murdered thousands, and intimidated tens of thousands of others from voting. Blacks often tried to fight back, but they were outnumbered and out gunned. While the main targets of Klan wrath were the political and social leaders of the black community, blacks could be murdered for almost any reason. Men, women, children, aged and crippled, were victims.In Texas, Governor Edmund Davis organized a crack state police unit, 40 percent of whose officers were black. The police made over 6,000 arrests and stopped the Klan. Armed groups of black and whites fought or threatened Klansman in North and South Carolina. The federal government also exerted its influence, empowering federal authorities with the Enforcement Acts of 1870 and 1871. Klan activity ended by 1872 and disappeared until it was revived again in 1915.

Join genealogist, Sharon Batiste Gillins for a discussion of Record Group 105 of the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands. She will share her experiences in locating records in this rich genealogical resource available at the National Archives.
The Freedmen's Bureau was established in the War Department by an act of Congress on March 3, 1865. The life of the Bureau was extended twice by acts of July 16, 1866 and July 6, 1868. The Bureau was responsible for the supervision and management of all matters relating to refugees and freedmen, and of lands abandoned or seized during the Civil War.
Sharon Batiste Gillins is a native of Galveston, Texas with paternal ancestral roots in St. Mary Parish, Louisiana and maternal roots in Fort Bend County, Texas. A life-long interest in her family's history led to an active involvement in researching African American family history over the past 25 years. While researching her own family, she developed an in interest in unique and under-utilized record systems and record groups. Some of her more recent work focuses on strategies researchers can use to analyze Louisiana’s Freedmen’s Bureau field office records for revealing, often personal information on freedmen ancestors.
Ms. Gillins is a member of the Galveston Historical Society, National Genealogical Society, and Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society. A retired Associate Professor at Riverside City College, she frequently calls upon her career background as a college educator to present workshops or deliver courses at regional and national conferences and genealogical institutes. She is also a member of the adjunct faculty at Samford Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research in Birmingham.
Rights of Blacks became an issue when American born Africans became legalized citizens of America in 1865. From that moment forward, constant objection to Africans being citizens of America brought hatred of the race. With African citizenship the poorest of Americans lost their place in society. The wealthiest of Americans lost their human property. They south lost the war, thereby lost the right to human ownership. The poor of the south had no class of people to master over. This is where we are today. Although the American born African was free, their were little rights to go along with that freedom. Equality for the freed people was not on the to-do-list of whites in America. Equality only began to make its way into society because there was always men who refused to be slaves. They created chaos and they gave their lives rather than be ensalved ever again. It was because of the deaths and terror in the land that whites come to realize they could find ways to follow the law, while denying blacks their rights. The Black Code Laws were adopted soon aftr slavery and so we live today constantly trying to change and eliminate those Black Code laws. Because blacks chose equality, eventually whites would stand with blacks for equality for all races. Whites were ortrichized and given names aking to names given to black, merely because they chose peace by endorsing equality for the races. The tool required to gain equality was at the ballot box. And so beginning in the 1940's the movement began. By the time the 50's ended blacks demanded more and was tired of waiting. By the 1960's the year of the flower children The races joined forces and and there were marches, and sit its to protest. Lives were lost but people keep marching. Read the March 15, 1965 speech LBJ gave to congress that fits into 2014. Pick up a Voters Guide and pick your politicians carefully.
Act 6. --- With us all members must proclaim their nationality, and we are teaching our people their nationality and their Divine Creerd, that they may know that they are a part and parcel of this said government, and know that they are not Negroes, Colored Folks, Black People, or Ethiopians, because these names was given to slaves by slaves holders in 1779 and lasted until 1865 during the time of slavery, but this is a new era of time now, and all men now must proclaim their free national names to be recognized by the government in which they live
