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.
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?

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.

Throughout the south, African Americans celebrate their family heritage though family reunions. After the Emancipation Proclamation was signed to free the slaves in 1863, many former slaves set out to find their kin. Noted author Alex Haley's television series "Roots" prompted many African Americans to become interested in African American genealogy.
"What are the functions of African American Reunions?" Are we linking the past, presence and future? Are we putting enough emphasis on family history, educational discussions, family investments, family charitable causes, family business affairs, successsions, family estate planning and other important family matters that are vital to the family existence?

"The Synagogue in Christian Society: Part 2"
Since the days of Christ and the apostles, Church-vs-Synagogue relations have been anything but good. What started as a movement within Judaism became a separate movement all its own. The hostility was compounded by the Synagogue's reaction to what it called a heretical sect. The Church responded with over-reaction. The rancor increased over centuries, and as the Church became mainstream in formerly pagan society, the Old Testament "People of the Book" were increasingly marginalized and persecuted. In the midst of all this, and DESPITE it all, many Jews came to believe that Jesus of Nazareth was indeed the promised Messiah. This Thursday we look at it all more closely in the 2nd of a 5-part series. Tune in and take notes! Your host, Rev. Rick Anderson on "Jewish Roots", each Thursday at 9:30 pm EDT. Listen LIVE at www.blogtalkradio.com/fougcrew or through Twitter, LinkedIn, GooglePlus and facebook.com/fougcrew. To call with a comment or question: 347-324-5750.
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.

On tonight's show Aurora, Kayce, and IX-Chel discuss their sexual stories, experiences, and knowledge as empowered women.
Aurora: Most women have no idea how to express their sexuality in a powerful way. Men and women are told from a young age how to express themselves in a society where sexuality is repressed and skewed. We women on this radio show call share our sexual stories to provide tools for men and women to move through the overlays to become sexually empowered together.
iX-Chel will share her sexual and spiritual awakening story, and the edgy journey she’s been on since she found the gift of her truth, voice, expression and liberation to her sexuality. Gifts that have been suppressed since she was a child growing up in a Catholic conservation home where sexuality was wrong, dirty, demonized, and shameful. She is now an empowerment coach, an advanced certified tantra yoga teacher & associate from the oldest tantra yoga school in the west. A former elite nationally ranked runner, blazing the way for exquisite feminine freedom. She leads events for men & women based on Tantra with an exotic twist. Most known for her "Sensual Surrender Play Shop for Women" where women experience embracing their creative life force energy, and learn to play a dominant role at the "Dakini Domme Knight Masquerade Puja."
