Tonight in the Sunday night sermon we will put to rest once and for all who we are as a people.Why are some insisting on denying their African roots?Dr Kwame Nkumrah once said I am not African because I was born in Africa,but Africa was born in me.We will break down the triumph of the African American while other Black people are running from racism we fight it every day.Tonight's show will deal with the growing gap between Continental Africans and African Americans.We are the same but we have major differences.
The Middle Passage of the Trans Atlantic Slave trade created a new African who is color and race conscious.Tonight I will expose Whites in their attempt to use African immigrants in a propaganda war against the Black struggle for liberation.Get ready for a fire and brimstone sermon as we firmly state to the world who we are and what we are about.
Celebrating 200 years of the returning African to Africa.
The History of Black Americans and the Black Church #14
Our Scripture verse for today is 1 Peter 2:9-10 which reads: "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy."
Our History of Black Americans and the Black Church quote for today is from Lee June, a professor at Michigan State University and the author of the book, "Yet With A Steady Beat: The Black Church through a Psychological and Biblical Lens." He said, "Within the Black community and the 'Black Church' the person who is a pastor is often more revered for preaching than for pastoring. As noted by Hamilton, preaching is one of the qualities that is most desirable and reinforced. I believe that this overemphasis on preaching has often led many pastors to neglect the 'shepherding' and leadership aspects of their roles. An additional widespread belief about preaching is that it is an activity to be geared toward believers and within a church setting. Speaking in contrast to this belief, Douglas in The New Bible Dictionary indicated that preaching in the early church was an activity geared toward nonbelievers."
Our first topic for today is a continuation of our look at the earliest African states from the book, "From Slavery to Freedom" by John Hope Franklin. We are going to look at the Hausa states.
The Afno, or Hausa, people are said to have had seven original states, the best known of which were Kano, Zaria, and Katsina. The Hausa states occupied roughly the area that today is northern Nigeria. Each kingdom retained its identity, with Kano emerging into the limelight for a while, then yielding to Katsina, and so on...
Tonight on The Gist of Freedom listen to excerpts from the autobiography of Olaudah Equiano, a survivor of the middle passage! www.BlackHistoryBLOG.com
--Survived The Middle Passage, purchased his freedom, became a black abolitionist and authored the first known Enslaved African Narrative . He was a famous proponent of British abolitionism and worked with William Wilberforce. His story is featured in the movie Amazing Grace.
He settled in the United Kingdom in 1792. His autobiography, "The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano", depicts the horrors of slavery and influenced the enactment of the Slave Trade Act of 1807.
They put us in separate parcels, and examined us attentively. They also made us jump, and pointed to the land, signifying we were to go there. We thought by this, we should be eaten by these ugly men, as they appeared to us; and, when soon after we were all put down under the deck again, there was much dread and trembling among us, and nothing but bitter cries to be heard all the night from these apprehensions, insomuch, that at last the white people got some old slaves from the land to pacify us. They told us we were not to be eaten, but to work, and were soon to go on land, where we should see many of our country people. This report eased us much. And sure enough, soon after we were landed, there came to us Africans of all languages.
Many of us have forgotten our history of the middle passge and many of us don't even know what we've been through that still affects us to this very day. Legacy of a Nation wants to remind us about where we come from and why we are the way we are.
This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

Please Join The Gist of Freedom as we welcome Adam Tulloch from Great Britian's Production of the play ‘Olaudah Equiano, The Enslaved African’
Olaudah Equiano Survived The Middle Passage, purchased his freedom, became a black abolitionist and authored the first known Enslaved African Narrative . He was a famous proponent of British abolitionism and worked with William Wilberforce. His story is featured in the movie Amazing Grace.
Following its success at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, ‘Olaudah Equiano, The Enslaved African’ will be transferring to Sutton House from the 26th-29th November.
Kidnapped with his sister at the age of eleven, Equiano is beaten, suffocated and tortured on their journey to the coast, which sees him separated from his sister and sold to British traders.
Set in the heart of West Africa during the height of the British slave trade, ‘Olaudah Equiano, The Enslaved African’ is an honest, uncompromising and moving portrayal of Olaudah Equiano’s early life.

My sources and cite can conferm that the UN and Obama does want to redistribute the wealth like it say in the social justice (Communisim) to include the taxation of all Americans to be taxed to a 100% level in order to suport the Sustainable Development Agenda. Which does mean thateven the middle class and the poor even those that are in poverty in the United States of America will have to pay this tax as well.
The very same formula that all the Communist nationa like North Korea, China, Russia, Cuba, Veitnam, all the South American countries are using today and when they first began to be a Communist nation.
Obama just loves this very idea and wants it to happen.
