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.
Writer Carolyn Riker has written about the changes in herself through the changes in her life, the world and inspiring generations into the power of self.
Join us for a cup of tea, some dark rich chocolate and a chat about change..
November 23rd, 2013 began a streak of three guest-hosting gigs in four weeks. I never did receive an adequate explanation for Mr. Gibbs' month-long attack of sloth (which is to say, I don't remember what it was). But you know me, I'm always willing to help, especially if it means getting the hallowed gold-pressed latinum KCAA microphone all to myself until I start growing as accustomed to the center seat of the starship Pistachio as the host. Kind of like "Captain" Riker in Best of Both Worlds.
Yes, that's foreshadowing.

We will discuss Jerome Murdough, a homeless Marine Corps veteran who suffered from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder who was arrested in Riker's Island jail and died there of overheating in a solitary jail cell in February 2014. Bob will discuss how deinstitutionalization of the mentally ill during President Regan's term and simultaneous removal (through lack of funding) for the "safety net" of detoxification centers, group homes and outpatient treatment programs contributed to Murdough's avoidable death and the negligence of America's most vulnerable population. The National Institute of Mental Health (NAMI) says there are 8,100,000 adults in this country with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, and a UCLA study found that fifteen percent of people with these diagnoses are homeless.
Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart, and Ethel Lopez of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.
Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Sam, Cliff and Ethel will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.
Our special guest for tonight's show is Attorney, Paul Prestia. He will share with our listenening audience the wrongful convictions story of Kalief Browder, a teenager, who spent 3 years in Riker's Island with no conviction.
A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commitrong. For full story: www.freetheirp6.org.
