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?

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.
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.

Ok! I finally pulled myself from the computer and headed to the movies this past weekend to see the movie "Django Unchained" my friends repeatedly told me I had to see this movie.

Matthew 13:1-8 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Parable of the Sower
13 1 On the same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the sea. 2 And great multitudes were gathered together to Him, so that He got into a boat and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
3 Then He spoke many things to them in parables, saying: “Behold, a sower went out to sow. 4 And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them. 5 Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth; and they immediately sprang up because they had no depth of earth. 6 But when the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away. 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them. 8 But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
I created a series of blog posts discussing breakups in business. Although it may be an uncomfortable topic it is necessary to discuss. We have to learn from our mistakes so we don't create those mistakes again.
This is definitely going to create interesting dialogue. Feel free to comment and call in to ask questions! Join the conversation.
Join me, LaTaye Davis, for this great discussion and share the episode with your friends.
