    in History

    The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism


    Historian Edward E. Baptist reveals in The Half Has Never Been Told, the expansion of slavery in the first eight decades after American independence drove the evolution and modernization of the United States. In the span of a single lifetime, the South grew from a narrow coastal strip of worn-out tobacco plantations to a continental cotton empire, and the United States grew into a modern, industrial, and capitalist economy. Until the Civil War, Baptist explains, the most important American economic innovations were ways to make slavery ever more profitable. Through forced migration and torture, slave owners extracted continual increases in efficiency from enslaved African Americans. Thus the United States seized control of the world market for cotton, the key raw material of the Industrial Revolution, and became a wealthy nation with global influence.


    Told through intimate slave narratives, plantation records, newspapers, and the words of politicians, entrepreneurs, and escaped slaves, The Half Has Never Been Told offers a radical new interpretation of American history. It forces readers to reckon with the violence at the root of American supremacy, but also with the survival and resistance that brought about slavery’s end—and created a culture that sustains America’s deepest dreams of freedom.


    Edward E. Baptist is an Associate Professor in the Department of History and House Professor and Dean at the Carl Becker House at Cornell University.

    Matthew 13:1 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.


    2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.


    3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;


    4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:


    5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:


    6 And 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 sprung up, and choked them:


    8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.


    9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.


    10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

    Inside the War Nest #9

    in Football

    There was no deja vu for the Philadelphia Eagles and their fans, as the Birds set up for a rematch with the Dallas Cowboys in week 14 for the Sunday night game...With a very different result! You KNOW Jim Williams and Mike McShane have just a few thoughts or more, over the Birds performance on the latest edition of Inside The WarNest.


    The Eagles lost to their division rivals, the Dallas Cowboys at the Linc on Sunday night. This loss hit fans and the team hard, with a win meaning a secure spot of the NFC East. Now, everyone must root for an Indianapolis win against Dallas this coming week to have a shot at the playoffs.


    The night started off rough for the Birds, when the special teams made an error on the opening drive of the game. This error allowed the Cowboys to score early.


    As against the Seahawks in the previous week, the Cowboys dominated the time of possession on the field. LeSean McCoy was once again held, with only 64 yards on the night. Though the TDs for the Birds came from Polk and Sproles. Mark Sanchez threw 2 picks, and Dez Bryant of the Cowboys showed all the holes in the Eagles secondary with some big touchdowns.


    This loss has many fans discouraged and anxious about the playoff future and leaves many questions: Have good teams like the Seahawks and the Cowboys showed a chink in Chip Kelly’s armor and the weaknesses of the team? What QB is the future of the team? Without a playoff appearance, can this season be called a success?


    Next week, the Birds take on the hapless, dysfunctional Washington Redskins, and a chance to regain some footing in the NFC East. The guys break down that upcoming games, and the challenges the Birds face to make a playoff run.


    Join Jim & Mike, as they debate and engage the hottest Eagles topics . . . AND, take your calls at 347 - 826 - 9964.

    Vision Boards and the Power of Intention on Talk-N-Angels Radio

    in Spirituality

    Do you know how powerful you are?


    If you know, do you really believe?


    There is a difference between intellectually knowing something and actually believing it to be true.  Our minds can and do influence us and can affect great changes in our bodies and in our circumstances.  Words and thoughts, affirmations and positive thinking can influence our sub-conscious mind and begin to change our vibration, raising it higher so that we can become more attuned to blessings in our lives - attracting more and more of what we desire.


    Believing in your power means you have, all the way into your total being, accepted and "bought into" what your mind understands.  The action of Intention moves from the sub-conscious mind to the Super-conscious Mind which works on a totally different level to "move mountains" so that your goals, dreams and visions can take root in the fertile soil of the physical realm and grow into being.


    What do you want in your life? What images represent your dreams? What words inspire you to move forward? Capture them with a vision board.  Get clear about your goals, your hopes and your vision for your life. Make the connection to turn your dreams into reality every day.   Visit us at www.talknangels.com for more information

    Candelo's Corner: Special 11-10-14 Rebroadcast

    in Spirituality

    Appropriation, Racism and Misnomers, OH MY!
    -- Racism in the ATR/DTRs: The 800 lb. Gorilla in the Room!


    We're presenting our most popular show in archive again for your edification and reflective thought. Please tune in and listen to Candelo Kimbisa, Ancestor Healing and Malik Kimbiza and hear them get to the root of the problem and ask the essential questions facing us all in these changing, charged times!


    Has the recent explosive growth and interest in the ATRs/DTRs flooded religions like Palo, Vodou, Santeria, etc. with people who have hidden agendas and/or deep-seated biases? Does subconscious hatred and/or racism toward children of the Diaspora, while worshiping and petitioning the very same ancestors and Spirits that gave birth to these descendants play a part in the corruption of ATR/DTR religions? What roles do greed and lust for power play in the acceptance of new initiates or prospective godchildren?


    Grab a seat ladies and gentlemen because that rebroadcast from November 10th was a roller-coaster, and needs to be heard again! Join the Bad Boys of Palo every Monday on Candelo's Corner at 5pm PT, 8pm ET, online, call in and listen by phone 646-478-5072, or 'Click-to-Talk' via a computer interface. While we will not be able to accept live callers to this special rebroadcast, feel free to join in chat using a registered BlogTalkRadio account.
