To be with her true love Luca, no one nor law standing in the way. To rule Ardenia as queen outright, no marriage necessary, as Luca does the same with the reformed Torrence. To rebuild the continent of The Sand and Sky into a place not defined by archaic, patriarchal laws, but by the will of its people. However, threats await in the shadows of Amarande's hoped-for happily ever after. One expected and deadly to both her love and every one of her objectives. The other, unexpected, and arising with a vicious aim: revenge at any cost. Against the princess who killed him, the boy whose love made her do it, and the continent cruel enough to deserve his rage. The King Will Kill You is the epic, pulse-pounding conclusion to Sarah Henning's Kingdoms of Sand and Sky trilogy. ABOUT SARAH HENNING Sarah Henning is a recovering journalist who has worked for the Palm Beach Post, Kansas City Star and Associated Press, among others.

On today's episode, Jason begins with a quick mention of Thursday Night Football between the Steelers and Browns in a rivalry matchup. Minor news out from Chicago Bulls camp is that PG Lonzo Ball is having another procedure done on his left knee. This being the 3rd instance he's having his knee cleaned up with many seeing Ball as a bust as a 2nd overall pick. Chicago has already paid Ball, but his continued absence leaves Zach LaVine and the Bulls stuck in a bad position. Palm Beach Post's Joe Schad swings by and discusses the 2-0 Dolphins and previews their upcoming game against the seemingly immaculate Buffalo Bills. The Dolphins are now a fun team to cover and watch with Tua Tagovailoa and HC Mike McDaniel off to a fast start. Schad explains that McDaniel is a huge part of why Tua and the organization is doing well, and has really pumped up the surging QB. Schad suggests that McDaniel is able to connect so well with the team, the complete opposite of the Dolphins' regime that preceded him. Jason and Joe preview the Dolphins' matchup against the Bills and how Miami's offense matches up against Buffalo's stout defense. Schad thinks Tua and company have a decent shot, especially with some of the injuries on Buffalo's end.

The Ghosts of Eastern Flight 401 SCARY TRUE STORYIn December 1972, there was a deadly air crash in Florida's Everglades. But that wasn't the end of the story…It was Christmas 1972 and passengers and crew onboard Eastern Airlines Flight 401 were making the relatively short journey between New York and Florida. They would never arrive.This tragic air crash was the most deadly ever to have occurred in the US at the time and generated heartbreaking stories of loss, heroism and love. However, it also created a ghost story that has never really been explained to this day. Here, we'll take a closer look.A routine flightThe aircraft assigned to Eastern Airlines Flight 401 that December 29th was an L-1011 from Lockheed, often referred to as a Whisperliner due to its quiet engines.It had been cleared for a 9PM departure from New York's JFK airport to Miami, with Captain Robert Loft at the helm and Albert John Stockstill, a former Air Force flier, as his co-pilot.Also on board were 25-year Eastern veteran Donald Louis Repo as engineer and second officer, maintenance specialist Angelo Donadeo, and Warren Terry, who was off-duty but hitching a ride to return from a duty assignment.The manifest listed 153 passengers, but there were in fact 160 on board, as well as the close-knit cabin crew that included 25-year-old Beverly Raposa and her colleague Mercedes ‘Mercy' Ruiz.The flight was uneventful and had crossed the Palmetto Expressway as it cruised over West Palm Beach to Miami, with the captain already having told his passengers the weather in the beach-side city as he made preparations to land.Trouble arisesIt was then, just before 11:40 PM, that a problem arose in the cockpit. Stockstill voiced his concern that a light had not come on to show the landing gear in the plane's nose was lowered as it should be.Loft tried again to lower it, but nothing had apparently happened. The crew made a U-turn and told air traffic controllers they would circle again as they attempted to ensure the landing gear was correctly lowered.They put the aircraft on autopilot and Loft climbed down into the avionics bay, a space beneath the flight deck, to see if he could personally check what was going on. Meanwhile, the others struggled with the cockpit display to see if the fault lay with one of its tiny light bulbs.Suddenly, the cockpit voice recorder captured a chilling phrase from Stockstill:“We did something to the altitude.”The plane should have been at 2,000 ft, but it had somehow dropped dramatically. A moment later, the voice recorder captured Loft's voice:“Hey, what's happening here?”The phrase would be the last communication to come from Flight 401.Devastating crash — and desperate rescue missionAt 11:43 PM, Miami air traffic control got a message from another aircraft to say they had seen an explosion close by. Flight 401 had crashed in the Everglades at 227 miles per hour, cartwheeling into the swampy water after the left wingtip hit the ground first.The plane broke up into several sections upon impact and travelled more than a third of a mile before finally coming to a halt.First on the scene was a local man named Robert Marquis, who had been trapping frogs with a friend on an airboat when he saw an orange fireball and knew instantly he was witnessing a plane crash. He turned his pleasure craft and swung towards the crash site, as did the Coastguard on a nearby helicopter.Meanwhile, flight attendant Beverly Raposa had survived the crash and found herself flung into the mud of the Everglades. In a stoic display of professionalism, she gathered other survivors around her and shouted for more to come towards the sound of her voice.After realising she was covered in jet fuel, she implored everyone not to strike matches for light and sang Christmas carols in a bid to keep their spirits up.“These were my people. They were my responsibility, and this was my job as a flight attendant,” she later told the Official Eastern Airlines Flight 401 website.The Coastguard's helicopter tracked down the survivors after Mr Marquis swung his lamp around to attract attention, and rescue vehicles began to gather them up via a flood control levee.Aftermath and investigationIn total, 75 passengers and crew survived. The eventual death toll would be 103, with some succumbing to their wounds after the event. Many drowned in the water of the Everglades before rescuers could reach them.Stockstill was killed on impact and Captain Loft died in the wreckage of the flight deck. Repo survived the initial crash, but died later in hospital. Technical officer Donadeo, who was in the avionics bay with Repo when the plane went down, survived. Two of the ten flight attendants also perished.An investigation was immediately launched into what happened that fateful night using the cockpit voice recorder. It was found that Stockstill had put the plane on autopilot after attempting to lower the landing gear and that it had continued its trajectory for 80 seconds.A sudden descent of 100 ft occurred, followed by two minutes of steady flight. After this, the aircraft began to descend so gradually as to be imperceptible before the pilots saw they were far too low. Although they tried to pull up, it was too late and the wing hit the water.Investigators realised the confusion in the cockpit over the landing gear light must have been enough to distract the pilots and mean an altitude warning chime wasn't heard.As to why the aircraft began to descend at all, other Eastern pilots testified to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) that their altitude hold function could be disengaged by bumping the control column.The NTSB therefore theorised that Loft had probably nudged the control column as he turned to talk to Repo about going down into the avionics bay to check the landing gear, which accidentally nudged the aircraft into a lower trajectory that it then automatically maintained.In a sad twist, the landing gear was found to be down exactly as it should have been, meaning the crash was effectively caused by two burnt out light bulbs.Officially, the NTSB cited pilot error, adding: “Preoccupation with a malfunction of the nose landing gear position indicating system distracted the crew's attention from the instruments and allowed the descent to go unnoticed.”Eastern Flight 401 was the first jumbo jet to crash and the loss of life was the worst in US civil aviation history at the time.Not the end of the story — ghosts in the machine?However, this wasn't the last that was to be heard of the doomed flight and its lost crew members. It was widely reported that several parts of the aircraft were salvaged from the crash site and returned to the manufacturer to be used again on other L1011s.Soon after, stories began to emerge that passengers and crew members on other Eastern flights were being visited by some of those who had died. At JFK, a boarding crew saw Loft sitting in the flight deck dressed in his uniform. Not realising who he was, they talked to him for a few moments before he allegedly disappeared in front of their eyes. The crew was so shaken that the flight had to be cancelled.On another occasion, a flight engineer saw Don Repo and the apparition told him he had already done the pre-flight checks before he vanished. During a flight from Atlanta to Miami, a crew heard knocking coming from the avionics hold and opened it to see the face of Repo looking back out at them.Perhaps the most startling episode was when a flight attendant on a trip from Mexico City to JFK saw Don Repo's face reflected in an oven door and heard him tell her to beware of fire. As the plane climbed, the engine indeed caught fire and the pilot was forced to shut it down and make an emergency landing back at the airport. Fortunately, no one was hurt.All in all, there were more than 20 incidents in which people reported having seen ghostly apparitions of dead Flight 401 crew members. Sightings had become so commonplace during 1973 that a report was published about them the following year in the US Flight Safety Foundation newsletter.Keen to shut down the paranormal tales, Eastern Airlines is said to have removed all log books in which ghost sightings were recorded and warned employees who perpetuated the stories they could face dismissal.Eastern Air Lines CEO (and former Apollo astronaut) Frank Borman spoke out to say the reports of sightings were “garbage” and a book published in 1980 called From the Captain to the Colonel: An Informal History of Eastern Airlines insisted no parts were ever salvaged from Flight 401 for reuse.In an interview with Eliot Kleinberg of the Palm Beach Post in 1997, Eastern's public relations representative Jim Ashlock also said the ghost stories were made up and that the airline had never hidden flight logs or intimidated witnesses.However, Mr Kleinberg said Don Repo's son Jay had told him he believed the stories about his father's ghost returning. He reportedly claimed he had inexplicably found a pair of Eastern Airlines wings in a Miami hotel room, which he took as a supernatural sign of visitation.Some still insist salvaged parts were behind the sightings of Captain Loft and his dead colleagues months after the loss of flight 401, and that Eastern Airlines was forced to remove them from the other planes to stop the spectres reappearing and allow them to rest in peace.Regardless, there were no more reports of apparitions after 1974. Perhaps Loft and his team had finally decided it was time to hang up their uniforms for the final time.The Ghosts of Eastern Flight 401 SCARY TRUE STORYRSLASH Paranormal: BEST Of True Alien, Ghosts, Unexplained and Bigfoot Stories 2022TRUE UFO, Bigfoot and Ghost Stories

Here, we'll take a closer look.A routine flightThe aircraft assigned to Eastern Airlines Flight 401 that December 29th was an L-1011 from Lockheed, often referred to as a Whisperliner due to its quiet engines.It had been cleared for a 9PM departure from New York's JFK airport to Miami, with Captain Robert Loft at the helm and Albert John Stockstill, a former Air Force flier, as his co-pilot.Also on board were 25-year Eastern veteran Donald Louis Repo as engineer and second officer, maintenance specialist Angelo Donadeo, and Warren Terry, who was off-duty but hitching a ride to return from a duty assignment.The manifest listed 153 passengers, but there were in fact 160 on board, as well as the close-knit cabin crew that included 25-year-old Beverly Raposa and her colleague Mercedes ‘Mercy' Ruiz.The flight was uneventful and had crossed the Palmetto Expressway as it cruised over West Palm Beach to Miami, with the captain already having told his passengers the weather in the beach-side city as he made preparations to land.Trouble arisesIt was then, just before 11:40 PM, that a problem arose in the cockpit. Stockstill voiced his concern that a light had not come on to show the landing gear in the plane's nose was lowered as it should be.Loft tried again to lower it, but nothing had apparently happened. The crew made a U-turn and told air traffic controllers they would circle again as they attempted to ensure the landing gear was correctly lowered.They put the aircraft on autopilot and Loft climbed down into the avionics bay, a space beneath the flight deck, to see if he could personally check what was going on. Meanwhile, the others struggled with the cockpit display to see if the fault lay with one of its tiny light bulbs.Suddenly, the cockpit voice recorder captured a chilling phrase from Stockstill:“We did something to the altitude.”The plane should have been at 2,000 ft, but it had somehow dropped dramatically. A moment later, the voice recorder captured Loft's voice:“Hey, what's happening here?”The phrase would be the last communication to come from Flight 401.Devastating crash — and desperate rescue missionAt 11:43 PM, Miami air traffic control got a message from another aircraft to say they had seen an explosion close by. Flight 401 had crashed in the Everglades at 227 miles per hour, cartwheeling into the swampy water after the left wingtip hit the ground first.The plane broke up into several sections upon impact and travelled more than a third of a mile before finally coming to a halt.First on the scene was a local man named Robert Marquis, who had been trapping frogs with a friend on an airboat when he saw an orange fireball and knew instantly he was witnessing a plane crash. He turned his pleasure craft and swung towards the crash site, as did the Coastguard on a nearby helicopter.Meanwhile, flight attendant Beverly Raposa had survived the crash and found herself flung into the mud of the Everglades. In a stoic display of professionalism, she gathered other survivors around her and shouted for more to come towards the sound of her voice.After realising she was covered in jet fuel, she implored everyone not to strike matches for light and sang Christmas carols in a bid to keep their spirits up.“These were my people. They were my responsibility, and this was my job as a flight attendant,” she later told the Official Eastern Airlines Flight 401 website.The Coastguard's helicopter tracked down the survivors after Mr Marquis swung his lamp around to attract attention, and rescue vehicles began to gather them up via a flood control levee.Aftermath and investigationIn total, 75 passengers and crew survived. The eventual death toll would be 103, with some succumbing to their wounds after the event. Many drowned in the water of the Everglades before rescuers could reach them.Stockstill was killed on impact and Captain Loft died in the wreckage of the flight deck. Repo survived the initial crash, but died later in hospital. Technical officer Donadeo, who was in the avionics bay with Repo when the plane went down, survived. Two of the ten flight attendants also perished.An investigation was immediately launched into what happened that fateful night using the cockpit voice recorder. It was found that Stockstill had put the plane on autopilot after attempting to lower the landing gear and that it had continued its trajectory for 80 seconds.A sudden descent of 100 ft occurred, followed by two minutes of steady flight. After this, the aircraft began to descend so gradually as to be imperceptible before the pilots saw they were far too low. Although they tried to pull up, it was too late and the wing hit the water.Investigators realised the confusion in the cockpit over the landing gear light must have been enough to distract the pilots and mean an altitude warning chime wasn't heard.As to why the aircraft began to descend at all, other Eastern pilots testified to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) that their altitude hold function could be disengaged by bumping the control column.The NTSB therefore theorised that Loft had probably nudged the control column as he turned to talk to Repo about going down into the avionics bay to check the landing gear, which accidentally nudged the aircraft into a lower trajectory that it then automatically maintained.In a sad twist, the landing gear was found to be down exactly as it should have been, meaning the crash was effectively caused by two burnt out light bulbs.Officially, the NTSB cited pilot error, adding: “Preoccupation with a malfunction of the nose landing gear position indicating system distracted the crew's attention from the instruments and allowed the descent to go unnoticed.”Eastern Flight 401 was the first jumbo jet to crash and the loss of life was the worst in US civil aviation history at the time.Not the end of the story — ghosts in the machine?However, this wasn't the last that was to be heard of the doomed flight and its lost crew members. It was widely reported that several parts of the aircraft were salvaged from the crash site and returned to the manufacturer to be used again on other L1011s.Soon after, stories began to emerge that passengers and crew members on other Eastern flights were being visited by some of those who had died. At JFK, a boarding crew saw Loft sitting in the flight deck dressed in his uniform. Not realising who he was, they talked to him for a few moments before he allegedly disappeared in front of their eyes. The crew was so shaken that the flight had to be cancelled.On another occasion, a flight engineer saw Don Repo and the apparition told him he had already done the pre-flight checks before he vanished. During a flight from Atlanta to Miami, a crew heard knocking coming from the avionics hold and opened it to see the face of Repo looking back out at them.Perhaps the most startling episode was when a flight attendant on a trip from Mexico City to JFK saw Don Repo's face reflected in an oven door and heard him tell her to beware of fire. As the plane climbed, the engine indeed caught fire and the pilot was forced to shut it down and make an emergency landing back at the airport. Fortunately, no one was hurt.All in all, there were more than 20 incidents in which people reported having seen ghostly apparitions of dead Flight 401 crew members. Sightings had become so commonplace during 1973 that a report was published about them the following year in the US Flight Safety Foundation newsletter.Keen to shut down the paranormal tales, Eastern Airlines is said to have removed all log books in which ghost sightings were recorded and warned employees who perpetuated the stories they could face dismissal.Eastern Air Lines CEO (and former Apollo astronaut) Frank Borman spoke out to say the reports of sightings were “garbage” and a book published in 1980 called From the Captain to the Colonel: An Informal History of Eastern Airlines insisted no parts were ever salvaged from Flight 401 for reuse.In an interview with Eliot Kleinberg of the Palm Beach Post in 1997, Eastern's public relations representative Jim Ashlock also said the ghost stories were made up and that the airline had never hidden flight logs or intimidated witnesses.However, Mr Kleinberg said Don Repo's son Jay had told him he believed the stories about his father's ghost returning. He reportedly claimed he had inexplicably found a pair of Eastern Airlines wings in a Miami hotel room, which he took as a supernatural sign of visitation.Some still insist salvaged parts were behind the sightings of Captain Loft and his dead colleagues months after the loss of flight 401, and that Eastern Airlines was forced to remove them from the other planes to stop the spectres reappearing and allow them to rest in peace.Regardless, there were no more reports of apparitions after 1974. Perhaps Loft and his team had finally decided it was time to hang up their uniforms for the final time.

As we all get ready to gather with our families and friends to celebrate the birth of Jesus, I'm reminded of Paul's words from Acts 20:35 “In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'” The words that just jump out at me from this verse are “we must help the weak.” There are so many ways we can do that at Christmas time.

 Launching A Bestseller and Business During the Pandemic with Lauren Peacock Book launch party in LA...canceled!  Multi-city book tour and signings...scrapped!  Maybe we can do it during the Summer 2020 when we ‘re-open'?  Not a chance!  And, yet Lauren Peacock managed to launch a bestselling memoir based on her experience as a millennial divorcee.  The overwhelming response to her book and a need she saw in the younger divorced community led her to creating an online community and monthly subscription box business that supports people going through the painful, isolating, and sometimes, eventually comical experiences of divorce and moving beyond it.   Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode: Discover Lauren Peacock, a wildly accomplished Jane-of-All-Trades producer, bestselling author, humorist, and founder of an online community and subscription box business.

Episode Highlights: A Virtual Community to Support the Divorcee Lauren saw a need to have a space where many who go through the intense and often common experiences of divorce at a younger age could support each other. Ending a relationship that has finances, children, building homes and lives together, and a legal bond is different from a heartbreak or breakup.  Lauren knew that it is support and community that get us through and beyond divorce. Lauren's Journey as a Producer, Writer, Author, and Creatrix of an Online Community. Lauren started out with aspirations to be on Broadway (her all-time favorite is the classic tap 42nd Street) but was disinterested in the undermining nature of showbiz politics.   She still wanted to be a part of entertainment and found her fit as a producer, being a part of all the processes from script reading and casting to final production.  With each job, she learned new things to add to her producer's toolbelt that she applied to TV, movies, videos, and commercials. Lauren always loved writing and started with writing regularly in her journal and talking about it with others.  After her divorce, she put her funny, painful, and very relatable collection of experiences into her bestselling memoir. What's in the Divorce Case Subscription Box?  The Facebook community, The D-Deck, started as a private community and part of the subscription.  However, Lauren wanted to offer a valuable resource to help support people during the many challenging experiences of the pandemic.   Now it is a closed but public community. The D-Deck is a meaningful way to connect, collaborate, network, and cross-promote within the community. Lauren writes weekly articles on topics around divorce.  Lauren also shares suggestions that worked for to help move from divorce to being ok with being alone like travel experiences and destinations.  The community offers further value with their own stories and feedback.   Lauren designs the monthly box filled with 8-10 thoughtful and meaningful items and notes that she helped her move through and beyond her divorce. Lauren's Process of Writing Her (Bestselling) Memoir Lauren Female. Likes Cheese. Comes with Dog.: Stories About Divorce, Dating, and Saying ‘I Do' She started writing in her journal in the months after her divorce in 2014. She also told her stories when her friends would email her asking, “How are you doing?”  Their feedback was that she should put these stories in a book. Lauren didn't take it seriously until she ‘ran away' alone to Europe and made the decision to do it. In 2017, she put her short stories into a narrative form.   Pro-tip: Hire an editor! As an independent, self-published writer, the process of putting your story out there is the reward and can be used as the thing that leads to other things...like the second book. Launching a Book at the Beginning of the Pandemic Grand plans for an LA launch party, book tour, and signings were cancelled. Maybe when we ‘re-open' in the summer of 2020?  Nope! Her PR got her great online press and TV coverage.  Lauren still has secret hopes to do a book tour but the varying restriction across states make it nearly impossible.   After an overwhelmingly positive response to her first book, she is now focussed on her second book! Her appearance in widely read magazines like Authority, Bustle, and Hello Giggles has grown her brand In the end, her stories are incredibly relatable and people have connected to them in a deep and meaningful way.  For Lauren, that has been the greatest reward. About Lauren Lauren Peacock is a multi-talented creative with great success as an accomplished producer, humorist, author, and founder of an online community and subscription box business. Lauren Peacock has always gravitated towards storytelling. After receiving a BA in communications from Florida's Flagler College, her theater background led her straight to the entertainment industry, where she has worked extensively for the past decade on projects like Joshua Tree , Atlanta's a Drag , and Ladylike , and she has done production work with organizations like GLAAD and the NFL, with many other exciting new projects in the pipeline.

Spellman.  Last week we covered the burning of a Capitol building…which happened to air on the day our Capitol was attacked…am I prophet?  Maybe.  Today we're headed down to the wetlands of east Florida, just outside of Jacksonville, and investigating the spirits that haunt Kingsley Plantation:  the princess turned slave turned slave-owner, Anna Kingsley; the vengeful and malevolent entity known as “Old Red Eyes”; and the ghostly white peacocks that scream in the night are just some of the known apparitions.  However, are these truly the ghosts that haunt the plantation?  Or is the true haunting the racial tropes that persist within these ghostly stories paired with the bloody imprint of slavery on our history?  Join me today to find out.   I was getting a little tired of telling the same old story of rich white folk, as ghost stories often tend to be…and the story of Kingsley Plantation is still often told as one.  Instead of focusing too much on the owner of the plantation, Zephaniah Kingsley, a rich, white polygamous slave-owner; I wanted to focus in on the story of one of his wives, Anna Kingsley, or Anta Madjiguene Ndiaye.  Her story is that of tragedy and triumph, overcoming being sold into slavery and even once freed, overcoming societal norms and the oppression of Jim Crowe.  For the history portion of the podcast, let us delve into the life of Anna Kingsley so that we can better understand her afterlife and the phantoms that lurk on the grounds of Kingsley Plantation.         On June 18, 1793 princess Anta Madjiguene Ndiaye of the Wolof people was born in modern-day Senegal.  At this time, this portion of West Africa was a home to conflict between the Wolof and the Fula and villages in the area were often lain waste to by slave raids.  The crisis only intensified and in 1806, Anta was captured by Tyeddo raiders from the Futa Toro.   She was taken by force to Goree Island, a slave debarkation point.  She was kept prisoner for days with little to no food.  However, on the first occasion she was presented to European buyers, she was sold.  Unfortunately, this catapulted Anta from one horrific situation to another.   The journey across the Atlantic was long and arduous.  The enslaved were shackled to wooden boards, confined to tight quarters, and were malnourished and over-heated.  Those who had died from heat stroke or another malady were simply thrown overboard like rotted meat.  Some people managed to escape and threw themselves overboard, as death by drowning was preferable to the horrid conditions on the ship and what awaited them once they arrived at their destination.   The ship landed in Havana, Cuba and the passengers were immediately forced into isolation.  This was done to help prevent the spread of any diseases that may have been brought with them and to make them presentable to potential buyers.   In the autumn of 1806, it was time for Anta to be put up for sale.  As it would have it, luck was on her side.  43 year-old Zephaniah Kingsley, an English merchant, had been in Cuba to purchase rum, molasses, and of course, as was the fashion of the day, slaves.  It was at this auction that he laid eyes on 13 year-old Anta and had to have her.  He desperately outbid every other slave trader and merchant there, winning ownership of Anta, soon changing her name to Anna.   Now, there is nothing about slavery that is good, but the fates were looking out for young Anta; rescuing her from a destiny that could have been much more dire.  While still a slave trader, and still a slave owner, Zephaniah held views on slavery that were atypical for the time and would benefit Anta until her death.   Although not ideal, and though it raises many modern day concerns: Anta was wed to Zephaniah in an African ceremony in Havana.  This ceremony was certainly not a catholic ceremony and therefore was not legally recognized by Spanish Florida or the United States during their lifetimes.    After this unconventional marriage, the couple made the voyage to Zephaniah's plantation, Laurel Grove, located in present-day Orange park.  However, Zephaniah and Anta did not arrive alone, as by the time they landed, Anta was with child.  Despite still being a slave, instead of relegating Anta to the paltry slave quarters – Zephaniah invited her to stay with him in his home.  This was a welcome change from the gruesome living conditions Anta had been subject to for the last several months.    Laurel Grove was home to over 100 slaves working to produce cotton, oranges, peas, and potatoes.  As mentioned earlier, despite being a plantation owner, Zephaniah's views on slavery were unique.  Make no mistake, he was still a slave master, but he was more humane than most.    Zephaniah employed a system where the slaves were appointed certain tasks for the day.  They were allowed to work as quickly or as slowly as they wished and when their day's work was completed they were allowed to use their time as they wished.  Zephaniah also allotted slaves their own fields to grow their own crops.  Some slaves spent their free time creating crafts, which Zephaniah permitted them to sell along with their own produce if they so wished.  Instead of segregating his slaves, Zephaniah preferred that they live together as families, rather than being split up.  However, despite this treatment his motivations weren't altruistic: he believed that if you treated slaves better that they would be more productive and less likely to rebel.   Apparently his system worked, as the plantation made up to $10,000 annually, or nearly half a million dollars today.  This was impressive, especially for a plantation in a secluded area of Florida.   Visitors to the plantation assumed that Anna was a free woman: after all, she ran the plantation along with a freed slave who acted as the manager while Zephaniah was off on business.  Though Zephaniah had other wives, Anna was always recognized as his primary and most beloved.  By 1811, when Anna was 18, she had bore three children: George in June of 1807, Martha in July of 1809, and Mary in February of 1811.  It was also this year that Zephaniah granted Anna full and legal emancipation, reinforcing her important position and place of power at the plantation.   In 1813, Anna petitioned the Spanish government, which still ruled Florida, for land.  She was granted 5 acres in Mandarin, just across the river from Laurel Grove.  Anna purchased equipment and goods to start her farm, including 12 slaves of her own.  Now, it may seem unusual for a freed slave to then go and purchase her own.  However, the concept of slavery was a part of her culture in Africa – including the model that female slaves often married their masters to gain freedom.  However, Anna was dead set on becoming an independent businesswoman, selling goods, produce, and poultry.   However, this particular business venture would not last long.  During that same year, Zephaniah was kidnapped by the Patriot Rebellion; American insurgents who were attempting to annex Florida by force.  The rebels attacked and raided towns and plantations and all blacks they captured into slavery—regardless of their legal status.  This put Anna at great risk.   The patriots soon arrived to pillage Laurel Grove, taking 31 of its slaves in the process, and using the plantation as their headquarters as they looted nearby areas.  To avoid capture and being re-sold into slavery, Anna negotiated with the Spanish for her escape, bringing her children and 12 slaves with her.  As she left, she burned Laurel Grove and her newly acquired homestead to the ground so that the insurgents could no longer use them as a base.  For this, the Spanish government awarded her 350 acres of land.  70 times what she had purchased earlier that year.   In 1814, now reunited, Zephaniah and Anna moved to a plantation on Fort George Island—what is now known as Kingsley Plantation near Jacksonville, Florida.  The plantation was looted and vandalized during the rebellion and every building aside from the main house was destroyed.  Here is where Zephaniah took his other three wives, all slaves, who gave him a total of 9 children.  These women were all freed, along with his children.   To say that the family dynamic was complex would be an understatement, but Anna was the one named in his will as his wife.  These other women were considered “co-wives” of Anna, but not quite matching up to her in terms of importance or power.  His wives and his children lived in luxury and were educated with the best schooling he could afford.  When the plantation had company, Anna would sit at the head of the table and the walls of the home were decorated with paintings of African women.   In the 1820's the Kingsley's built a separate kitchen connected to the main house by a walkway.  Above the kitchen was a room where Anna resided with her children and this building was dubbed the “Ma'am Anna House”    A total of 32 slave residences were built not far from the main house.  They were arranged in a peculiar semicircle pattern.  Some historians believe that Zepheniah did this to keep a closer watch on his slaves, but others believe it was Anna's doing as many African villages were arranged in similar patterns.  In 1824, Anna bore her fourth and final son, John.   Spain eventually ceded Florida to the United States.  This transfer of power led to significant changes in how slaves and free blacks were treated.  Interracial marriage were considered to be invalid and children of mixed descent were not allowed to inherit property.  While all those born free slaves prior to 1821 were not subject to these new laws, their youngest son was born in 1824 and would not receive these same protections.  Worried that his family's rights may be taken away, in 1835 Zephaniah, moved to Haiti, in a location that is now part of the Dominican Republic.  He transferred all of his holdings to his three eldest children who stayed behind, while Anna and their youngest son, John, followed Zephaniah to Haiti in 1838.    In total Anna and Zephaniah brought 60 slaves, family members, and freed employees with them.  Since slavery was illegal in Haiti, those who were not yet freed acted as indentured servants who would earn their freedom in 9 years' time.  Anna and Zephaniah lived together on the island rather peacefully until in 1843, on a trip to New York, Zephaniah died at age 78.   Because of the new laws in Florida, none of his children were able to inherit his property and his sister, Martha, and her children challenged his will, claiming it was “defective and invalid”  Under Florida's new laws it was illegal for black people to own property and Martha claimed that when they moved to Haiti to remain free, they also abandoned their right to the property.   Despite the racial tensions boiling in Duval County at the time, neing the powerhouse of a woman that she was, Anna returned to Florida in 1846 to participate in the legal battle for the property that was rightfully hers.  Miraculously, the court upheld the treatise between the United States and Spain decreeing that all free blacks born before 1821 had a right to the same privileges they had under Spanish rule.  This was an extraordinary achievement for a black woman before the Civil War.   Naturally, when the Civil War did break out, Anna and her children were Union sympathizers.  Jacksonville was captured by the union in 1862 and Anna and her children were briefly evacuated to New York.  She returned to Florida, taking up residence in Arlington, to be nearer to her daughters who were married to white planters in Florida.  Anna passed away in 1870 at the age of 77 after living a full and eventful life.   Anna's ghost can still be seen on Kingsley plantation and is known as the “Woman in White”.  She is usually spotted on the back porch of the main house, and can often be photographed there.  However, she is not alone, her husband, Zephaniah can also be seen on the plantation from time to time.   Anna's descendants remained part of the African-American upper class for more than a century.  One of her descendants even includes Florida's first black millionaire, Abraham Lincoln Lewis.  Though Anna is long dead, her spirit, and her legacy, will live on for generations to come.   A few parts of Anna's story are disputed, but it was widely factual.  Anna did not appear to burn down her property to save it from the insurgents as she was already on a boat away from the area at the time.  Additionally, it is not confirmed if she truly was a princess.  Her lineage is widely debated and whether or not she descended from royalty. She shares part of her name, Ndiaye, with a mythological ruling figure from Jolof culture.  Additionally, her mother also held royal blood from Wolof culture and Anna may have been the daughter of ruling royalty at the time of her birth, but there is no proof on the matter.   I was able to find a number of primary sources about Anna, which was surprising given that she was a black woman in the 1800's.  However, the material I did find doesn't help us tell her story as it mainly pertains to her will.    I was devasted that I couldn't find a photograph of Anna.  Websites have pictures that claim to be her, but when you reverse search them it turns out they are other famous black women in history.  The woman on the episode image, for you Spotify listeners, and the one on the Instagram are not of Anna, but another freed slave from the plantation.   We do have a descriptions of Anna.  One from Zephaniah says that she was "a fine, tall figure, black as jet, but very handsome. She was very capable, and could carry on all the affairs of the plantation in my absence as well as I could myself. She was affectionate and faithful, and I could trust her.” And in his will he says  “She has always been respected as my wife and as such I acknowledge her, nor do I think that her truth, honor, integrity, moral conduct or good sense will lose in comparison with anyone."   Her niece described her a little differently, though she still greatly admired her beauty:   I remember her very distinctly. She was not black, and had the most beautiful features you ever saw. She was a most imposing and very handsome woman. Her smooth, light brown skin, her dark-eyes and wavy [sic] made her outstanding, and I would not keep my eyes away for admiration. She was quiet and moved with regal dignity—I have never seen anything like her, before or since. Her daughter was there also, and she was very light in color, but not as good-looking as her mother. I was six or seven years old at the time. I was Kingsley's niece. The next morning my aunt, Mrs. Gibbs, sent two servants for us with a horse and buggy, and we were carried over to Newcastle. My mother was furious that we had spent the night at Ma'm Anna's, but it could not be helped.   In fact no letters, photographs, or personal effects of Anna's are known to exist.  Even her grave is unmarked.  It is sad, but as we've discussed in other episodes, not out of the ordinary for a woman, specifically and especially a woman of color.   Now, let's get into the ghosts.  There are a lot of fun sightings on the Kingsley plantation, which was converted to a state park in 1955 and later incorporated into a national park.  This designation has allowed the property to welcome many visitors who have seen strange things.   As I mentioned Anna's ghost is often seen on the property and captured in photographs.  Maybe these are the only photographs of Anna Kingsley to exist.  However, it should be noted that she's spotted in the main house…where she did not live.  As we know she had her special residence known as Ma'am Anna's House.  She didn't die on the property, and she hadn't lived there for nearly 30 years when she did.  But it is still possible that she loved the property on Fort George Island.  Although a account from one of her white friends, Susan L'Engle, says that she seemed quite lonely but her work on the plantation and running the house kept her busy.   I wasn't able to find any firsthand encounters of her ghost.  In fact, I discovered this story through reddit, where I was asking if anyone knew of any ghost stories of people of color because I was sick of talking about old white people.  For black ghosts it's hard to search since shadow figures are described as black and will often show up, and when searching African-American it's usually metaphoric ghosts that appear such as “The Ghosts of Slavery” or the “Ghosts of the Jim Crow Era”  Now, the thing I found sad, annoying, and frustrating is that my post was constantly downvoted.  I thought it was just me…but even the comments, one saying “Black ghosts matter!” was also heavily downvoted.  It's just sad to see that happening.   And even though I did uncover this story about Anna, it is typically only discussed through the lens of her white, slave-owning husband.  But I digress.   There is another presence on the island that isn't the powerful, inspiring woman that was Anna Kingsley.  Instead, it is a dark, malevolent entity that seeks to harm: Old Red Eyes.   Legend has it that Old Red Eyes was once a slave on the plantation.  This man raped and murdered girls on the island – both the daughters of white planters and fellow slaves.  Once the other slaves on the island discovered who was behind this brutal attacks, they banded together and lynched Old Red Eyes from an oak tree.  Now, Old Red Eyes lurks on the property, spying on visitors from the trees, looking for his next victim.  Some say if you say his name three times…he just may appear.   Old Red Eyes manifests as a pair of red, glowing eyes in the woods and was first spotted in 1978.  After the recounting of a tale by a local in 1993, he has been spotted much more regularly.   For me, the interesting thing about this story is that it is full of stereotypes and idiosyncrasies.  Namely the trope of a black man being portrayed as a murderer and a rapist is one that still pervades today, and these types of stories, whether true or not, were used to spread fear and rationalize lynching in the south.  However, during the plantation era, lynching was not common and was mainly seen in the Jim Crowe era.   Interestingly, the take on the Bloody Mary myth—chanting his name three times, seems to coincide with the 1992 film Candyman: a film where the son of former slaves and a lynching victim is conjured in a similar fashion.  This would also explain the increased sightings beginning in 1993.  Old Red Eyes is also a colloquial name for the devil in some parts of the south.   Emily Palmer, one of the Park Rangers at Kingsley plantation, has another explanation for Old Red Eyes.  She says, “Interestingly enough, along Palmetto Avenue we do have something hanging from the trees that would reflect bright red eyes if a brake light was shining in them.  They're called possums. I believe that people have probably seen something of that sort… but I think it may have been a more natural explanation than what people are looking for.”   In addition to natural inhabitants like the possum, ghostly animals are also seen on the plantation.  At night you can hear the screams of a young girl, and if you follow the sound, you may be presented with a jarring sight: a ghostly white peacock.  Is it an omen?  In early Christian lore the peacock represents Christi's resurrection and the soul's ability to live on after death.   Again, Palmer is a downer, quoted as saying “If you're unfamiliar with the fact that there are albino peacocks, and if you are not familiar with the sound a peacock makes when it's doing its mating call, you might take that for a little girl screaming.  It's a pretty unique noise.”   Okay, fine, Emily!  Stop being such a downer.  What about the ghost alligator that sits at the bottom of a stairwell?  Do you have an explanation for that?  No.  I didn't think so.   A quick rundown of some of the ghostly encounters includes the smell of gingerbread in Anna's kitchen, furniture that moves on its own, a crying child in the well, the apparition of an African man in a turban, and old Zephaniah himself.  There is a tradition that you must never say “Goodnight, Zephaniah” while locking up for the night because it can cause “bad things” to happen.  What this mean, I don't know.  But I wouldn't want to chance it.  Though it seems rude on Zephaniah's part because you're just trying to be nice and courteous.  But…he was a polygamist slave-owner who had to buy his wives so maybe he's not very rational.   Kingsley plantation remains one of the most haunted places in Florida.  And whether or not its ghosts are real or simply spooky wildlife…the land is an important part of a freed black woman's story and her family's legacy.  I'm honored to have been able to tell it and I hope you enjoyed listening.   You can find historic documents and photographs are on the podcast Instagram @crimesandwitchdemeanors and sources are in the show notes.  So, please, beware of possums hanging in the trees, watch out for the ghostly crocodile at the bottom of your stairs, and as always, stay curious and stay spooky.  Bye~

  Welcome back to BeREAL! This week, Diana and Ednesha are joined by Lorraine C. Ladish to discuss her history with an eating disorder, being your best self at fifty, and overcoming adversity.   Lorraine is a 21st Century Communicator, helping empower women and others to achieve their goals. She is the founder and CEO of Viva Fifty! a bilingual community that celebrates being 50+. She has worked as an editor and social media coordinator for a number of online publications. She's a content creator and regular contributor to  NBCNews, Huffpost, AARP, Babycenter and Mom.me. She has contributed to People en Español, La Palma of The Palm Beach Post,  Purple Clover, Latina magazine and Redbook . My latest book on embracing age was published by HarperCollins in 2017. Most of all she is a woman, a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a writer, an entrepreneur, and a yogini.   Lorraine begins the episode by giving a summary of her life. She covers a wide range of events that happened throughout her 57 years beginning in childhood. Throughout all these stories, she ties back to themes of survival and perseverance. She delves into details about her struggles with an eating disorder, and how it affected her life and those around her. Lorraine also touches on the publication of her book that centered around her eating disorder. She believed it would not find success in Spain (where it was first marketed) because of it was not something that was discussed culturally. However, it was a hit.   Next, Lorraine tells the story of how her life turned around suddenly before she was eventually able to find success. At 45, Lorraine suddenly found herself in the United States, unemployed, divorced, and with two children to take care of. Through various writing jobs, Lorraine was able to revolutionize her life once again, taking her from food stamps to becoming a successful entrepreneur.    Lorraine concludes the episode by discussion where she is today. She talks about how much joy she has being in her fifties, and how she doesn't believe she has even reached her peak yet. She discusses body positivity, both her struggles with it and how she promotes it to other women through Viva Fifty! She reflects on her role as a mother, and how she teaches her daughters about self care and self love.    Thank you so much for tuning into BeREAL this week!
