  • Mapping the Freedmen's Bureau with Angela Walton-Raji and Toni Carrier

    in History

    Did you know that the majority of Freedmen's Bureau records are now digitized and available online for free, as well as the records of other institutions that served newly-freed African Americans during Reconstruction? Angela Walton-Raji and Toni Carrier have built a new website called "Mapping the Freedmen's Bureau - An Interactive Research Guide" (www.mappingthefreedmensbureau.com) to assist researchers in locating and accessing records of the Freedmen's Bureau, Freedmen's hospitals, contraband camps and Freedman's Bank branches. Researchers can use the website's interactive map to learn which of these services were located near their area of research interest. If the records are online, the map provides a link to the records that tell the stories of newly-freed former slaves in the American south. The goal of this mapping project is to provide researchers, from the professional to the novice, a useful tool to more effectively tell the family story, the local history and the greater story of the nation during Reconstruction.

    Angela Walton-Raji is an author, genealogist, guest lecturer and producer of the weekly African Roots Podcast and Toni Carrier is the Founder of LowcountryAfricana, a free website dedicated to African American genealogy and history in SC, GA and FL.

    -Tanya, Stellar/Dove Nominated Recording Artist



    in Radio

    Born and raised in Chicago's south side, Johnny Louis aka "Fella Soul" grew up in the mean streets, was a high ranking member of the vice lords (a Chicago street gang) and was on a fast track to no where until he heard the voice of God. "I was on my way to committing another illegal act when Gods voice stopped me in my tracks and told me to pray."

    That was nearly 5 years ago and since that time Fella Soul has been receiving nothing but blessings. As he says, "I don't call it a blessing because I'm doing what I love, the blessing is in recognizing that God loves me all the time". "Testimony" is the first single from the soundtrack of the movie American Badboy, which stars Katt Williams, features Karyn White and also presents Fella Soul in a cameo role where he performs his "Testimony" single.

    Fella Soul has 4 songs featured on the soundtrack and is working on his first full length project as well as preparing to tour churches, youth groups and do live performance dates throughout the U.S. "I'm excited about the future, I want to bring my Testimony to as many people as I can, I want to touch hearts, change lives and make a difference in the world and for humanity." - See more at: http://www.soultracks.com/song-month-fella-soul-testimony#sthash.u6mE3KnR.dpuf

    Proxy The Film: Writer/Director/Actor Brandon Deyette and Actor Charlie Harding

    in Movies

    Nicholas Snow welcomes Brandon Deyette who wrote, produced, directed and acts in his latest film, Proxy. Also joining the show, adult film star Charlie Harding who is making his mainstream entertainment debut in Proxy as Tristan.

    The film's synopsis?  On a Sunday in July, one man’s indiscretion affects eight lives. Josh thinks his only goal is to get back his grandmother’s engagement ring from ex-girlfriend Tess. A casual day gets much more serious for Steve and Tristan once their friend Price leaves for a date. A family secret causes friends Becca and Kari to reveal secrets of their own.

    Deyette started producing in 1994, at the legal age of 14 years old. While this seems like a stretch, it was merely a favor from a friend’s father that allowed him to do so. Since then, he’s gone on to work in Broadcast News, produced photo shoots, commercials, theatre, and video; written for and acted in theatre and commercials.  Harding began his performance career by playing Charlie Brown on stage in high school. After many years out of the performance arena, he made his adult acting debut for Falcon Studios in February 2012. He has performed in over 25 adult films.

    The Yehudah Project: End Time Prophecies, cannibalism,moral decay & our people!

    in Culture

    Our goal at the Yehudah Project is to establish open communication and build a bridge with love to combat the negative spirits that attempt to attack our men and women through hatred and division. We want to recognize and appreciate each other through love, support and accountability while taking responsibility for our behaviors and actions.

    STOP the abusive dialog between our Hebrew men and our Hebrew women, because we are experiencing the same identical hardships today and we need to heal each other with love.

    It is mandated by YHWH for us to come together and pray: we are a nation of people with dual nationalities and we have to open dialog as a nation to prepare ourselves and our families for the changes that are about to happen according to the Word. Children are won through the union of the man and the woman. Let’s remember our children learn what they live!
