Inspired by Deborah Willis' book, Reflections in Black, THROUGH A LENS DARKLY (Willis is also a co-producer) casts a broad net that begins with filmmaker Thomas Allen Harris’s family album. It considers the difference between black photographers who use the camera to define themselves, their people, and their culture and some white photographers who, historically, have demeaned African-Americans through racist imagery. The film embraces both historical material (African-Americans who were slaves, who fought in the Civil War, were victims of lynchings, or were pivotal in the Civil Rights Movement) and contemporary images made by such luminaries as Roy DeCarava, Gordon Parks, and Carrie Mae Weems. The film is a cornucopia of Americana that reveals deeply disturbing truths about the history of race relations while expressing joyous, life-affirming sentiments about the ability of artists and amateurs alike to assert their identity through the photographic lens.
Note: The Digital Diaspora Family Reunion Roadshow is an interactive project that ties-in with the film. For more details, go to www.1World1Family.me.

Join The Gist of Freedom tonight as we welcome Lenora Branch Fulani.
Ms. Fulani has spent almost three decades fighting to end the two-party system and create a “viable, national, pro-socialist” party for those who feel ignored by the Democratic and Republican parties. Fulani ran for the presidency in 1988 and 1992.
She grew up in Chester, PA and watched her father die because, she said, no ambulance would come to her poor, African-American neighborhood. This, along with the firing of a gay choir director at her church, shaped her desire to address injustice.
A scholarship student at Long Island’s Hofstra University, she graduated in 1971 and then earned a master’s degree from Columbia University’s Teachers College and a Ph.D. in developmental psychology from the City University of New York, where she was much influenced by Dr. Fred Newman, who would serve as both a mentor and her campaign manager. While a guest researcher at Rockefeller University, she joined Newman’s New York Institute for Social Therapy and Research and his New Alliance Party (NAP).

1Sa 10:5 KJV - After that thou shalt come to the hill of God, where is the garrison of the Philistines: and it shall come to pass, when thou art come thither to the city, that thou shalt meet a company of prophets coming down from the high place with a psaltery, and a tabret, and a pipe, and a harp, before them; and they shall prophesy:
1Sa 10:6 KJV - And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man.
1Sa 10:7 KJV - And let it be, when these signs are come unto thee, that thou do as occasion serve thee; for God is with thee.
1Sa 10:8 KJV - And thou shalt go down before me to Gilgal; and, behold, I will come down unto thee, to offer burnt offerings, and to sacrifice sacrifices of peace offerings: seven days shalt thou tarry, till I come to thee, and shew thee what thou shalt do.

On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable reviews The Equalizer! Is it faithful to the 80’s television series on which it’s based? Does it have to be? Is it among Denzel Washington’s best action films? Is it merely another violent thriller in the vein of Taken? Does it bear a striking resemblance to another Denzel Washington thriller, Man on Fire? Are the similarities between the two films merely superficial? Is Antione Fuqua one of today’s more competent action directors?
We’ll also be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Quentin Tarantino’s breakthrough film, Pulp Fiction! Is it still the post-modern classic that we all remember? Did it single handedly bring independent cinema to the forefront? Could it possibly be the single most overrated film in the Tarantino cannon? Did it begin a modern day renaissance of crime cinema? Was it the single most original film of its era? Did it revitalize American cinema? Can its influence still be felt today? Just how much did Roger Avery contribute to the Oscar-winning screenplay? Does it contain Samuel L. Jackson’s single best performance?
Prayerlessness is a sin
1 Samuel 12:23 KJV23 Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way:
1 Samuel 12:23The Message (MSG) 23-25 “And neither will I walk off and leave you. That would be a sin against God! I’m staying right here at my post praying for you and teaching you the good and right way to live. But I beg of you, fear God and worship him honestly and heartily. You’ve seen how greatly he has worked among you! Be warned: If you live badly, both you and your king will be thrown out.”
The Story of the Persistent Widow
Luke 18: 1-8 1-3 Message Jesus told them a story showing that it was necessary for them to pray consistently and never quit. He said, “There was once a judge in some city who never gave God a thought and cared nothing for people. A widow in that city kept after him: ‘My rights are being violated. Protect me!’
4-5 “He never gave her the time of day. But after this went on and on he said to himself, ‘I care nothing what God thinks, even less what people think. But because this widow won’t quit badgering me, I’d better do something and see that she gets justice—otherwise I’m going to end up beaten black-and-blue by her pounding.’”
6-8 Then the Master said, “Do you hear what that judge, corrupt as he is, is saying? So what makes you think God won’t step in and work justice for his chosen people, who continue to cry out for help? Won’t he stick up for them? I assure you, he will. He will not drag his feet. But how much of that kind of persistent faith will the Son of Man find on the earth when he returns?”
Mr Holder is the first black US attorney general and has had the fourth longest tenure in the post in history resinged today September 25th, 2014. Listen to The Gist of Freedom with Roy Paul www.BlackHistoryUnversity.com
Now that Holder feels he has accomplished more in recent months in the areas of prison and sentencing reform and helped restart a national conversation about racial justice in light of the shooting of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Mo., the people said, he feels more comfortable with leaving government.
In August 2014, Holder became controversial again when he ordered the Department of Justice to investigate events surrounding the death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown at the hands of Ferguson, Missouri police officer, Darren Wilson. He ordered the DOJ to investigate possible civil rights violations related to the shooting and excessive force Ferguson police used against Brown supporters following the incident.
Eric H. Holder, Jr., U.S. Attorney General since 2009, was born on January 21, 1951 in the Bronx, New York to parents of Barbadian descent, Eric, a real estate agent and Miriam Holder, a telephone operator. Holder was raised in East Elmhurst, Queens, a community which included a number of famous African Americans such as Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Harry Belafonte, and Sidney Poitier. Civil rights activist Malcolm X lived two blocks from young Holder and on one occasion in 1964, then recently crowned heavy weight champion Muhammad Ali entertained him and other community children on the steps of the Malcolm’s house.
Holder entered Columbia University where he participated in sit-ins by African American students. In 1973, he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in U.S. history from Columbia and then entered Columbia University Law School, earning a J.D. in 1976.

Tonight's show is dedicated to Charles White ‘Images of Dignity’, Charles White (1918-1979) captured the strength, character and complexity of African Americans in dramatic charcoal illustrations.
When his Social Realist images were published in a book for the first time in 1967, Negro Digest promoted it. In an un-bylined article, the magazine featured a portfolio of Charles White’s drawings from “Images of Dignity: The Drawings of Charles White” (Ward Ritchie Press).
