    Black Abolitionists, Book by Benjamin Quarles Chapter 9 Vigilance Committe

    in Education

    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.

    in Social Networking

    President and Founder of, a #youth mentoring and youth education non profit organization that helps with the rebuilding of troubled youth and none troubled youth so they can become productive and confident individuals in a global society 


    President NAACP- June 2006 – December 2012 (6 years 7 months) As President of the NAACP it was my duty and my charge to represent people of all races in 18 cities of Wayne County for social, educational and injustice. 


    Darrell Gardner's Horsemanship was founded upon four principles: 


    Showing Your Horse Love 
    By expressing love to your horse it helps to build a good relationship and strong bond. This will lead to a better response from your horse. 


    Gaining Respect 
    If you don't have respect on the ground, you won't have it on the saddle. Respect is an essential part of horsemanship and it begins with good ground manners 


    Teaching Obedience 
    Obedience comes with consistent training. This teaches your horse what you expect and how to quickly respond to the cues given. 


    Loyalty between the horse and trainer 
    It all begins with gaining trust. Your initial approach is extremely important. It takes patience and time to get your horse to gain faith in you.

    in News

    The city of Minneapolis has been duped again by poverty pimps, hustlers and crooked clergy. While some continue to use the name of the Minneapolis NAACP to push an agenda and feed white guilt, there are some in the black community that understand processes and how to engage people from all walks of life...but we have been ignored.
