    Boston State Senator William Owens, with Donald Brown on The Gist of Freedom

    in Education

    Boston State Senator William Owens, with Donald Brown on The Gist of Freedom and TANDLRADIO.COM! This show is in honor of George Edwin Taylor!


    More than one hundred years before Barack Obama, George Edwin Taylor made presidential history. Born in the antebellum South to an enslaved black man  and a freed woman, Taylor became one of the first African American ticketed as a political party’s nominee for president of the United States, running against Theodore Roosevelt in 1904.

    Orphaned as a child at the peak of the Civil War, Taylor spent several years homeless before boarding a Mississippi riverboat that dropped him in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Taken in by an African American farm family, Taylor attended a private school and eventually rose to prominence as the owner and editor of a labor newspaper and as a vocal leader in Wisconsin’s People’s Party. At a time when many African Americans felt allegiance to the Republican Party for its support of abolition, Taylor’s sympathy with the labor cause drew him first to the national Democratic Party and then to an African American party, the newly formed National Liberty Party, which in 1904 named him its presidential candidate.

    Sacred Sunday~Galatians Chapter 6/612 Jewish Laws Vs. Freedom Through Christ

    in Christianity

    Galatians Chapter 6-Slaves No More


    What's the gist of all this? Don't be slaves to the law. You've been given your freedom, so take it and run with it, Galatians! Paul tells them if they go ahead and get circumcised, things are not gonna work out well. Besides the fact that it's gonna hurt a ton, if they get snipped, they'll be forced to obey all the other 612 Jewish laws on the books. Good luck with that, guys. Also, they'll be cutting themselves off from God's grace since they'll be trying to find a relationship with God through the law. That path is a dead end. Literally. But if they want to follow Christ, they should just do that. No law-abiding required. The only thing that matters is having faith. Come on, Galatians! You guys were doing good until someone pushed you off the straight and narrow. God will see to that. Paul is pretty angry by this point and says that he wishes "those who unsettle you would castrate themselves!" Watch the potty mouth, Paul.  Paul hopes that the Galatians will stay on the path to freedom, but this doesn't mean they can do anything they want. In fact, true freedom comes in following God's will. If they truly love God, they'll devote their lives to loving each other. Hugs all around. Paul reminds them to keep their focus on spiritual things instead of material things. In other words, no Rolexes. This also means no "fornication, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, anger, quarrels, dissensions, factions, envy, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these."  On the other hand, a person who lives in the Spirit will be loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, generous, faithful, gentle, and in control of themselves.  If a person truly lives in Christ, they'll follow the Spirit's lead and do all these good things.

    Audio Book Henry Bibb, Part 2 self-liberated newspaper founder, The Voice!

    in Education

    Audio Book Henry Bibb,  Part 2 self-liberated  newspaper founder, The Voice!


    Author and Newspaper Owner, Henry Bibb a self-liberated black man gained his freedom in 1837. However he returned to Kentucky to try and rescue his wife and daughter. On the first attempt, he was recaptured and his whole family was sold south to a Mississippi plantation owner.  


    They escaped together, but were set upon by wolves and recaptured. Henry managed to get away again, but despite all his efforts, could not free his beloved Malinda and their little girl, Frances.
    ------
    Henry Bibb became an eloquent lecturer, author and community organizer.  http://bit.ly/HenryBibb_LoveAds


    In September 1851, as a result of the new Fugitive Slave Law, Mr. Bibb called a conference to be held in Toronto to discuss whether or not Canada was the best place for African Americans to seek freedom. 


    More than 50 delegates came to the North American Convention, also called “The Convention of Coloured Freemen.” 


    Henry and Mary also started a newspaper, The Voice of the Fugitive, in January, 1851. The Voice of the Fugitive was the first anti-slavery paper published in Canada by people of African descent. It was a very important means of communicating with Underground Railroad supporters, and with the general public. 


    Mr. Bibb's autobiography, Narrative of the Life and Adventures of Henry Bibb, An American Slave publicized the horrors of slavery. It was published in 1849 and became very popular reading, helping to further the cause of anti-slavery in North America and even in Europe.

A network of agents in the U.S. and Canada collected from subscribers and sent the money to Henry and Mary so they could run the newspaper.

    Audio Book, Harriet Jacobs ~Survivor of Slavery, Abolitionist and Author

    in Education

    The Gist of Freedom www.BlackHistoryUniversity.com is pleased to present to you the audio book of Harriet Jacobs, an African American abolitionist! Mrs. Jacobs  became active in the antislavery movement, and at the urging of several female abolitionists, she wrote “Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl,” which was published in 1860. Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, is a powerful depiction of the sexual abuse of female slaves. 


    Harriet Jacobs would thwart repeated sexual advancements made by slavers for years, then escape to the North. She would later publish an account of her anguished life in her autobiography, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl.


     


    Harriet had previously asked Norcom for permission to marry a free black man. Norcom had violently refused. Now Harriet had a plan to disrupt his fight for sexual conquest: She had become friends with a caring white man -- an unmarried lawyer. She would become sexually involved with this man, become pregnant, and an infuriated Norcom would sell her and her child. 


    A child was conceived.  The harassment continued even after she bore the lawyer another child. Finally, after she learned that Norcom was preparing to put her children to work as plantation slaves, she had had enough. In June of 1835, after seven years of mistreatment, Harriet escaped.


    Harriet was actively involved with the abolition movement before the launch of the Civil War. During the war she used her celebrity to raise money for black refugees. After the war she worked to improve the conditions of the recently-freed slaves. 

  • Conversations with Sapphire J Blue with Author Harper Miller - The Sweetest Ta

    in Writing

    The Sweetest Taboo: An Unconventional Romance-Like many single women who reside in the city that never sleeps, Micah Foster has had numerous encounters with undesirable men that make her want to renounce love. Just when she’s on the verge of calling it quits in her quest to find love and a sustainable relationship with a Dominant man, her friend Kisa requests her company for a girl’s night out at Spanxxx, a local fetish club. Both Kisa and Micah are seasoned submissive players in the BDSM lifestyle. Micah has been involved in the scene since her early twenties, but she has yet to meet a Dominant she meshes with and takes seriously. Now, at age thirty, she continues to search for a connection that repeatedly eludes her. Under duress, she crosses paths with Dominant Rick Thomas. Unusual and dire circumstances bring the pair together, and he’s exactly what Micah has been searching for. 



    The Sweetest Taboo is aptly titled. It’s an unconventional erotic love story that provides a different perspective of a relationship involving D/s and BDSM. The reader will follow Micah and Rick’s journey from beginning to end. You’ll laugh, you’ll be turned on, and most of all, you’ll find yourself cheering for their love. 


    Entwined (The Kinky Connect Chronicles Book 3)-After twenty years of devotion to Uncle Sam, I called it quits. I was wired and looking to get into some trouble. Trouble found me all right, in the form of a hot-bodied fox. 



    Little did I know how much she’d rock my world. 

    The names are all fake, details have been fudged, but you’ll get the gist of what went down. 

    You’re getting one hell of a tale. This is my story.
