Today on The Gist of Freedom at 2:30 please join guest host William Katz and author Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz for a lively discussion about her latest book
"An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States"
WWW.BlackHistoryblog.com archived on iTunes www.BlackHistoryUniversity.com
The first history of the United States told from the perspective of indigenous peoples
Today in the United States, there are more than five hundred federally recognized Indigenous nations comprising nearly three million people, descendants of the fifteen million Native people who once inhabited this land. The centuries-long genocidal program of the US settler-colonial regimen has largely been omitted from history. Now, for the first time, acclaimed historian and activist Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz offers a history of the United States told from the perspective of Indigenous peoples and reveals how Native Americans, for centuries, actively resisted expansion of the US empire.
And as Dunbar-Ortiz reveals, this policy was praised in popular culture, through writers like James Fenimore Cooper and Walt Whitman, and in the highest offices of government and the military. Shockingly, as the genocidal policy reached its zenith under President Andrew Jackson, its ruthlessness was best articulated by US Army general Thomas S. Jesup, who, in 1836, wrote of the Seminoles: “The country can be rid of them only by exterminating them.”
Spanning more than four hundred years, this classic bottom-up peoples’ history radically reframes US history and explodes the silences that have haunted our national narrative.
This evening, Monday the 15th we will play a podcast made by Alternative Radio in which Howard Zinn talks about his book "A Peoples History of the United States." This will be the first of 4 parts to the same interview. The second part will be broadcast Tuesday the 16th. The third and fourth parts will be broadcast Monday and Tuesday of next week. Jeff will introduce the interview and make some closing remarks after it is over. If you have not already read Zinn's book we suggest you do so. He is a master at finding and bringing back to life the history that was 'left out' of our public school education.

BLACK HISTORY QUOTES
"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to learn, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite." By Nelson Mandela

Hello Every One Thanks for Listening!
It's been extremely busy and crazy as we all have "grinded" through the month of January 2016, and I ask myself: "did we just celebrate Christmas and New Year of 2015!" Now here we go again- lather, wash, and rinse. And ofcourse, we are celebrating and honoring Black History Month. I don't know about ya'll, but I feel like I'm in the Twi-lite Zone!
I encourage you to join me as I share with you some Great History, Fun Facts and Trivias for the whole family to enjoy! Everyone has a "history" and this includes you and I. Have you ever stopped to think or consider how your life or "history" may have inspired others or how you may have impacted someone elses life in a very profound way? WOW, many times, I thank GOD for allowing positive and influential "people" to come into my life and help shape me into the Woman I am today. I believe all of us have something to contribute to our History and Culture, so let's not forget to Honor and Celebrate those individuals who have "paved" the way and made great contributions and Sacrifices for our Land. Celebrating Great History is fun...
