SORT BY Relevancy
Toni Morrison said, "The Empire of Necessity is scholarship at it's best. Greg Grandin's deft penetration into the marrow of the slave industry is compelling, brilliant, and necessary."
Join The Gist of Freedom Tonight www.blackHistoryBLOG.com as we discuss the book "The Empire of Necessity" with author Greg Grandin!
Tryal was the ship whose human “cargo” had rebelled, murdered their owner along with a score of other whites and demanded that Cerreño sail them back to Africa. Fifty years later, Melville made Delano’s story the basis of a short novel that he called “Benito Cereno.” Grandin writes about the unknowable inner lives of the Revolters, a reticence that elevates the novella far above the antislavery manifestoes of the slavery era in which the enslaved appear in one form of caricature or another. He conveyed the horror of slavery while looking unblinkingly at the reciprocal fury of self-liberated slaves toward those who had enslaved them.
Grandin …. reconstructing the world through which the revolters moved toward their strike at freedom, he has done more than any previous scholar — and there have been many — to illuminate the context of the work in which Melville confronted slavery without presuming to comprehend its vast ramifications. “The Empire of Necessity” is also a significant contribution to the largely impossible yet imperative effort to retrieve some trace of the countless lives that slavery consumed.
Join The Gist of Freedom with host ILYASAH SHABAZZ, (Malcolm X's daughter) and Historian Yule Anderson a Fort Mose preservationist, as we continue our audio book reading of Breaking The Chains by William L. Katz. This week we read about Slave Revolts, from chapter Nine!
What role did the Irish play in the Transatlantic slave trade? Were the Irish ever enslaved or slave owners?
Join my special guest, Dr. Maurice Gleeson for a compelling overview of Ireland and the Slave Trade.
Dr. Maurice Gleeson is a psychiatrist from Dublin who works in London as a pharmaceutical physician. He is an avid genealogist and has traced his Irish family tree back to about 1800 on half of his ancestral lines. Using DNA, he was able to get back into the 1600's on one line, and this inspired his interest in Ireland's involvement with the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

Today on "It's My House" we shall discuss the topic of "30 Years A Slave"; no it's not a movie (yet) nor is it based on the movie 12 Years A Slave..........however when it comes to pure slavery in the form of debt slavery the net effect might not be that different.
If you have a 30 year mortgage on your home, you are a slave. If you have a reverse mortgage or any type of mortgage on your home, you are a slave. If you live in a large urban municipality there is a very good chance that you are a slave. At bare minimum you are living on a plantation.
We shall discuss strategies on how we can "buy back our freedom" and live a happy and prosperous life with any debts attached.

Tonight will be part two on my topic on where was and has slavery lasted the longest? And why isnt it being taught in school when local history and world history is taught to us as children? Why do we learn of this horrific history by only B/Academia and not W/Academia if it actually occurred on the scale that we have been led to believe? How many of we have memory of the Trans Atlantic slave trade also called the Maafa? However we watch movies on slavery played by White and Black actors and now it is seared in our minds that these awful things happened because now a (movie) told us it did? They did the same thing with the movie the TEN Commandments. Which I actually own by the way. But the world knows the Biblical Hebrews were never a white people, and yet because of this movie Polish Germans have been allowed to pass themselves off as Biblical Black Jews. Wow, that is majic. Are African or Black Educators responsible for not teaching true history to Black children globally? Ayiti/Haiti occupies small satellite islands known for tourists, including; lle-a-Vache", which includes Port Morgan and Abaka Bay. In French, the country's nickname is La Perle des Antilles (The Pearl of the Antilles), because of its natural beauty. It is the most mountainous nation in the Caribbean and the country's highest point is Pic la Selle, at 2,680 metres 8,793 ft. By area, Haiti is the third largest Caribbean nation after Cuba and the Dominican Republic with 27,750 square kilometres 10,714 sq mi (roughly the size of the U.S. state of Hawaii or the country of Belgium by population, Haiti is the second largest Caribbean nation, with an estimated 10.7 million people, just under a million of whom live in the capital city, Port-au-Prince. How long have BA's really been enslaved and should we all be labeled Africans?
The recent attack by the Taliban on children in Pakistan killing 142 innocent persond and the execution of 4 children near Bagdad by ISIS certainly appears that militant Islam has a war on children who are the most vulnerable. Now to discove that the depravity goes as far as to circulate a price list for captured girls should cause nations to respond to the carnage they are causing.
Our previous conversation on 11/20/14 was so inspiring that we decided to continue the conversation.
The ego. Yes, you have one. We all do. It’s the ‘operating system’ we use to navigate life and the world around us. It’s what we think we are: our “self.” It is also the biggest obstacle to remembering our true self and God. In fact, it’s the ONLY obstacle.
Join us to learn more about the ego and its ways: what it is, how it works and how it manages to keep us so blind and enslaved to its agenda.
