    Our Grandfather's Footprints

    in Family

    Many people from every ethic background can share great stories about their grandfathers. Our grandfathers provided for their families, they purchased their own land, they grew their own food, they built their own homes, and many of them were self-employed-- although many had little or no former education according to the U.S. Census from 1870 to 1940.


    Those men took care of the community. They had skills that were passed down from generation to generation. Have we studied the history and the journeys of our grandfathers? What can we learn from the valuable lessons they taught us? Have we abandoned some valuable lessons they taught? Have we lost our inhertiance?

    We Don't Have to Lose Our Land!

    in Family

    From the newly freed slaves of 1863 to today's black farmers and landowners, African Americans have fought to acquire and maintain land. They have encountered crippling obstacles along the way. In 1910, nearly one million black landowners in the United States owned a total of 15 million acres. By 1969, they held only 6 millions acres. In 1920, blacks owned 14% of the nations' farms. Today, there are less than 18,000 black farmers, representing less than 1% of all farms according to the NAACP National Voter Empowerment Program Office. http://www.NAACP.org


    Where are we today?  Are we losing our land due to Taxes, Mortgages, Heir Property, Loans, Swindles, Lack of Education, Predatory Lending? Please join Host and Genealogist Antoinette Harrell for this upcoming discussion.

    Coping With the Loss of a Love One

    in Family

    The Harrell, Gordon, Richardson, and Vining Family has loss several family members since our last family reunion in 2012. Coping with the loss of a close friend or family member may be one of the hardest challenges that many of us face. When we lose a spouse, sibling or parent our grief can be particularly intense. Loss is understood as a natural part of life, but we can still be overcome by shock and confusion, leading to prolonged periods of sadness or depression. 


    The death of a loved one is an event that all of us is likely to experience during our lifetimes, often on numerous occasions. Whilst lives are often transformed by such loss, it does not necessarily need to be for the worse in the long term.

    Family Members Who Served in the Military

    in Family

    Many of my relatives on my maternal side of the family served in the U.S. Military. I was happy to find all the Draft Registration Cards for my paternal grandfather and serveral of his brothers. One thing that I observed is the fact that all the Harrell men who remained in Amite, Louisiana were self-employed. Those that left and went else where was employed by others.

    OUR COMMON GROUND :: " The Matter of White ManNess: The Bad Apple Argument NOT"

    in Politics Progressive

    OUR COMMON GROUND with Janice Graham


    Tonight:           " The Matter of White ManNess: The Bad Apple Argument NOT"

     police misconduct, college students singing songs of lynching Black people or elected officialswe are quick to defend the system as a whole and say that these are just examples of “a few bad apples”. We submit that such arguments are ‘bullshyt’. These problems are definitely systematic and "the bad apple arguments" do not pass the test of logic. 
    Does not a rotten apple pollute all the apples in the crate ? Or, is their bacteria in the crate which infects all the apples ? This racist behavior living in a “specialized white male culture’ living off of white privilege and supremacy is impossible. It pollutes and empowers whatever real or assumed power they are granted. Our children die and live by this system. Our tax dollars support it.


    "Transforming Truth to Power, One Broadcast At A Time"


    Solutions, ideas and notions of the critical issues facing the Black community so that " . . . it may Achieve itself". We present  serious Black scholars, philosophers, thinkers, activists and grassroots leaders of our time. Informed and forward looking discourse in a safe sanctuary for "Black truth".
