    Maroon & Revolts Audio Book Breaking The Chains Wm. L. Katz Chps 8 & 9

    in Education


    Chapter 8 and 9, Runaways and Maroons; Revolts in the Age of Revolution,


    Breaking The Chains by William L. Katz "will force many readers to reexamine their assumptions about American history… Young readers will be fascinated and better informed for having experienced this book,” wrote School Library Journal. Striking photographs highlight this unknown heritage.”
    — Black Child Magazine, February/March 1997


    The story of Maroon communities in the Americas is one of the most important and fascinating chapters in the history of New World societies. However, it is a story that is not well known. Scholarly research and forensic archaeology are increasingly uncovering the evidence of Maroon settlements that have been a part of the US from the 1600s until the 1900s, but were hidden in plain view. Not only is little known about Maroon encampments established throughout the southern US, but our history books include little trace of the agency of Africans, who were forcibly brought to the US and enslaved, but employed military and diplomatic strategies in international relations, represented Native nations in negotiations with the US government, launched cottage industries, and built lasting communities long before the end of the Civil War.


    Over Two hundred years ago, while the elite in New Orleans were making their usual preparations for Mardi Gras. Plantation owners were planning all-night parties, and the women of the house were looking forward to elaborate masquerades and balls.
    What they didn't know is while they were planning for their annual carnival festivities, their slaves were planning a little something of their own.
    On one fateful night, 500 armed slaves rose up from the plantations and set out to conquer the city.

    LOTL The Comfort Zone Presents DeWayne Woods Debuts new CD " Life Lessons "

    in Music

    Over the last few years I’ve experienced extreme ups and downs with life, depression, disappointment with my career and even the feeling of being left behind,” confesses urban inspirational vocalist DeWayne Woods who burst on to the music scene in a big way with his 2006 Top 5 radio smash “Let Go” that was written and produced by Maroon 5’s P.J. Morton. The song spent a solid year on various Billboard Magazine singles charts and won him three Stellar Awards including Best New Artist of the Year. After other radio hits such as “Living on the Top” and “I Won’t Be Afraid,” things quieted down for the Kansas City native and that brings us to the themes that echo throughout Woods’ first CD in four years, “Life Lessons” (Soul Therapy/ Central South Distribution). “When my manager and I started receiving music from songwriters, I always made sure that the songs we chose reflected some part of my life. I believe that’s why `Let Go’ was so special, because I lived it. As the record started to build and we worked with the writers about certain things I wanted to express, I realized it became a teaching record full of lessons that I’ve learned over the years. I’ve gone through these experiences not just for me, but to help someone who may be experiencing the same things.”
    I had broken dreams; I was so full of pain
    But then You came and now I’ll never be the same again
    I had tried it all and I wanted to change
    And right then you came and now I’ll never be the same again
    Whether it’s a new relationship or a renewed sense of faith, many people have been in a similar situation as the one described in the engaging song “Never Be The Same Again.” Much of this thought-provoking Urban Inspirational album revolves around the notions of comfort and hope. There’s
