John F. Kennedy once told a presidential biographer that rating presidents from best to worst that it was impossible without a deep appreciation of the office. Perhaps even first-hand experience was necessary: "No one has a right to grade a president - even poor James Buchanan - who has not sat in his chair, examined the mail and information that came across his desk, and learned why he made his decisions.”While JFK's view will never stop historians from ranking U.S. presidents from best to worst, he makes a good point that historical figures likely had good reasons for what they did, even if the end result was failure and their reputations were left in tatters. Andrew Jackson's Indian Removal Act or Thomas Jefferson's failure to provide justice equally (even though he enshrined the equality of all in America's founding documents) are explainable and understandable, even if they aren't excusable. To explore this theme further is today's guest is Jon Meacham, host of the new podcast, Reflections of History. Meacham is a Pulitzer Prize-winning author of American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House, and several other biographies, presidential or otherwise. We discuss the lasting legacies of Jefferson, Jackson, and other presidents who rose or fell to the moment. We also discuss which historical figures should get greater recognition, whether the aftermath of the Titanic gives us ideas on how to mourn national tragedies, and the greatest accomplishments of the 20th century, including, but not limited to, NATO, vaccines, the Space Race, and Jackie Robinson breaking down baseball's color barrier and accelerating the Civil Rights Movement.
Thanks for the patience, but we've got an episode well worth the wait — writer Jamaal Lemon returns to the pod!A lot has happened since we first got to know each other over a year ago, not the least of which is a @BeardFoundation nomination for his three-part @GoodBeerHunting piece, “Tek Cyear uh de Root”. He goes deep on how the idea developed into the artful synthesis of Charleston history, beer, guns, and systemic racism it grew to be. Our conversation was tremendously eye-opening, often difficult, but ultimately lined with hope (always does with Jamaal), and we can thank @SweetGrass3 enough for the honesty, openness, and perspective.

Find out more about the DNA ancestry company aiming to increase its appeal across a wider range of ethnic groups. They're attempting to correct the racial bias in DNA databases, so customers get a fuller story of who they are. Genetic studies have primarily been done nearly exclusively in European populations to date and DNA databases are four to one skewed in favour of European DNA. But diversity drives are unearthing genetic treasure. Slavery scrubbed the family histories of generations. Genetics is helping African Americans, for one, piece together their stolen stories. In this episode David Reid hears the story of Jamila Zheng who found her ancestral home and relatives she didn't know existed after taking a DNA test. We also hear from Dr Steven Micheletti, Population Geneticist at 23andMe and Dr Anjali Shastri, Senior Research Programme Manager at 23andMe about the diversity drive at their company.

Sam and Emma host Robin D.G. Kelley, professor of American History at UCLA, to discuss Juneteenth, observed today. First, however, Sam and Emma dive into Gustavo Petro's victory in Colombia's presidential election over a mayoral tycoon, Melanchon's coalition topping Macron's (and both being beaten out by LePen's), Iowa's Supreme Court overturning the state constitution's protection of abortion rights, and the outright refusal of liberals to hold any ranking Republican accountable for the stochastic terrorism that led to 1/6. Then, they're joined by Professor Kelley as he first tackles the classic story behind the holiday, celebrating the arrival of Union forces in Galveston Texas to deliver the good news of emancipation, supposedly marking the official end of slavery in the US, and contrasts this with the way Black folks in Texas celebrated this moment, referring to it as a “jubilee” and a recognition of their divine sovereignty over their own life and land, as they look forwards to right to vote and the promise of reconstruction. Continuing off this, Kelley, Sam, and Emma discuss the actual history of the emancipation proclamation as leaving out some 450k enslaved people, the actual freedom of these people coming through their own agency and fight as they flocked to help union forces, and the role Texas played as a haven for slave owners escaping this “tyranny.” After touching on the continuation of this fight, with the right's bulwark against history and the liberals' own erasure in favor of uplifting a fallacy of unity, Professor Kelley dives into celebrating Juneteenth in a way that genuinely raises these issues and views this date as the start of a new war for reconstruction, working towards the reparations and decolonization that were seen in the promise of reconstruction, and expanding it to fights for indigenous people from Palestine to the US. Then they expand the discussion to the relationship between racism and capitalism (or just racial capitalism), how the birth of this economic system occurred in a European society that centered on racial and gendered differences for social delineations, and thus had access to a mode of thinking that legitimized the exploitation of “lesser” people. Next, they look to the development of capitalism in the United States, and how it built up white patrimony to deceive the majority of white Americans, and patriotism and nationalism for the rest, indoctrinating them into a world where racial and ethnic hierarchy are standards, before they wrap up the interview by emphasizing that class struggle is not colorblind, anti-racism is not anti-class, and that to truly fight these powers and live up to the promise of Juneteenth's jubilee, we have to simultaneously take on these overlapping systems. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma cover Trump speaking out against the accusations of him calling Mike Pence a wimP**** when really, he just meant Pence lacked courage, Brendan from PA calls in to discuss the upcoming Pennsylvania races and why the GOP is going unopposed in 3 of the 17 house races, and discuss the Democrats' desire to not politicize the 1/6 coup attempt. Adam Schiff discusses Clarence Thomas' conflicts of interest before Sonya Sotomayor comes to Thomas' rescue, because how could you ever force a man to resign when he knows his colleagues' names. Krystal Ball embarrasses Bill Maher by having a reasonable recollection of the last two years, Denis Prager calls out the left for refusing to debate him, and ignores the calls for debate, and a Missouri Senate Candidate, accused of all sorts of violence against women and children, launches his RINO Hunting campaign.

Today, many Utahns are celebrating Juneteenth for the first time since it was declared a state and federal holiday. Betty Sawyer, head of the Ogden Chapter of the NAACP, has dedicated much of her life trying to make Juneteenth an official holiday. She joins us to discuss what this day means to her.

June 2, 2022 (Season 4, Episode 9, episode length: 61 minutes) Click here to read the larger Speak Your Piece shownotes.Women, Race and Marriage: This Speak Your Piece episode involves: (a) Women's history–this is the 2nd in a series about Utah Women's History, (b) Utah's new Juneteenth holiday, and (c) a seminar-like discussion on Patrick Mason's Utah Historical Quarterly article, entitled: “The Prohibition of Interracial Marriage in Utah, 1888-1963 (V. 76, No. 2). This excellent UHQ article, offers much insights into the law, politics and culture surrounding race in Utah, during the late 19th and 20th c. If you want to understand what historical headwinds are pushing up against Juneteenth in Utah, here's your episode.Dr. Cassandra Clark, Utah's Women's History Initiative coordinator, draws out in this discussion not only the issues about race in Utah, but also challenges us to seek out women's stories and perspectives. With Mason's help, Clark explains how to identify motive and biases around historical sources; and how bystander male assumptions (in this case male clerks, police officers and newspaper reporters) may no longer be mistaken for women's stories and perspectives. Next, late 19th c. US congressional efforts, and the broader American public's resistance to Mormon polygamy, along with Utah mirroring the nation's anxiety about race, all play in this complex story. “Responding to a nation that portrayed polygamist Mormons as the most deluded and degraded of all people, Latter-day Saints counter attacked by highlighting the moral depravity of their critics. Mormons strong disavowal of miscegenation certainly reflects trends in late 19th century LDS theology and culture, but it also represents a political tactic calculated to deflect attention and criticism at the high point of the national anti-polygamy crusade.” Patrick MasonThe heart of this UHQ article involves America's and Utah's very wrong and harmful historical assumptions about race, also white legislators' efforts to restrict, in regards to race, who should or should not marry in the eyes of the state. And finally, how Utah and the nation sought to codify into law, anti-miscegenation or interracial marriages (most particulary white & black or white & Asian). The use of the term “miscegenation," is a historical term that has no currency in a society based on respect for all human rights, fundamental freedoms, and racial equality. To read Mason's article, click on "The Prohibition of Interracial Marriage in Utah, 1888-1963" At the present Mason is the Arrington Chair of Mormon History & Culture, and is an associate professor of Religious Studies and History, at Utah State University.Mason begins his article with this description: “On a September day in 1898, Dora Harris and her fiancé Quong Wah, Chinese immigrant and proprietor of a downtown laundry service, enter the county clerk's office in Salt Lake City, seeking a marriage license. The deputy county clerk rejected their request citing a law passed ten years earlier by the territorial legislature which forbade a white person from marrying anyone of black or Asian descent.”On this first nation-wide commemoration of “Juneteenth,” this episode acknowledges and describes this new national holiday; offers the backstory and describes why nationally, and in Utah, this holiday and what it represents is a good thing. The date celebrates the two year delayed announcement in Texas of the end of Slavery.
We're celebrating Juneteenth today with some of our favorite interviews about the holiday and our history: Clint Smith, staff writer at The Atlantic, award-winning poet, and author of How the Word Is Passed: A Reckoning with the History of Slavery Across America (Little, Brown and Company, 2021), leads listeners through a tour of U.S. monuments and landmarks that explain how slavery has been central in shaping our history, including a visit to Galveston, TX, where Juneteenth originated. Elizabeth Alexander, president of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, poet, educator, memoirist and scholar, looks back through American history -- both recent and not -- and asks the fundamental question "what does it mean to be Black and free in a country that undermines Black freedom?" as she wrote in an essay for National Geographic. Harvard professor and Texas native Annette Gordon-Reed discusses her book On Juneteenth (Liveright, 2021), the 2021 creation of the new federal holiday based on the events in Texas and why it's important to study our nation's history. Keisha N. Blain, University of Pittsburgh historian and president of the African American Intellectual History Society, author of Set the World on Fire: Black Nationalist Women and the Global Struggle for Freedom (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2018) and Ibram X. Kendi, professor in the Humanities and the founding director of the Boston University Center for Antiracist Research, co-editors of Four Hundred Souls: A Community History of African America, 1619-2019 (One World, 2021), talk about this moment in Black history and their new collection of 80 writers' and 10 poets' take on the American story.

Freedom and Slavery are different mindsets. Often when slaves believe themselves to be revolutionary, they are merely echoing their peers.

In reckoning with America's history of slavery, how the story is told — and by whom — matters. Clint Smith, author of the bestseller “How the Word Is Passed” shares his perspective.
Historian Dr Vashna Jaganarth joined me to explain why Juneteenth matters. We inevitably hear her brilliant narration of many complex aspects to the historical (formal) end to slavery in 1865. Along the way, she talks about the gaps between legal declarations of freedom, and forms of enslavement that continue thereafter. Unsurprisingly, who can access legal justice becomes a matter of class politics. Vashna spends a lot of delicious time on food, and what the lives of enslaved peoples have gifted us, and hence why we have certain typical foods on the Juneteenth table. This begins a discussion about the importance of humanising slaves. They did not merely endure, suffer and survive slavery. They also had humanity within the enslaved conditions (itself a form of resistance) - dance, music, food, love, etcetera. Vashna explains why, historically, white supremacy wanted the full humanity for slaves to be suppresed in the descprtions of 'slaves'. This, in turn, means that when emancipatory politics sets out to achieve full justice for the oppressed, it is important to not perpetuate the brittle view of enslaved persons. Vashan explains in this episode what this means and requires. We ended the episode by discussing what the modern project of justice for slavery entails, beyond breaking bread. Enjoy!
As the Ashanti armies retreated back across the Pra River, Kofi Kakari and the Ashanti legislature were forced to admit defeat. They offered to concede on all of the British demands. However, the British commander Garnet Wolesly was not willing to accept these terms. Despite the pleas of others in the British colonial authority, Wolesly decided that there was only one way that the Anglo-Ashanti Wars would end: with the complete destruction of the Ashanti Empire.The (all) UnknowingWhat does it mean to know?

Should the Lords Spiritual be scrapped? Currently 26 bishops sit in the Lords. But it's been reported that some cabinet ministers want that to end after the Church of England criticised the government's plan to deport asylum seekers to Rwanda. We debate the issues with the former attorney general Dominic Grieve - a practising Anglican and former Conservative MP - and Dr Jonathan Chaplin from the Divinity Faculty at the University of Cambridge. In Ukraine, the focus of the fighting has shifted to the Donbas region, but it is as fierce as ever. A senior government official has told the BBC that Ukraine is losing between one and two hundred troops every day. Military chaplain Father Sergiy Berezhnoy, a Ukrainian Orthodox priest and a chaplain to the 42nd Battalion of Defenders of Kyiv tells Edward how Ukrainian soldiers are bearing up in the latest battle. The Archbishop of Canterbury has apologised after research showed the Church of England's investment fund has links to the slave trade. Justin Welby said he is 'deeply sorry' for the links. But are apologies enough? We speak to Robert Beckford, Professor of Climate and Social Justice at the University of Winchester, who's recently been to Barbados to explore the legacy of the link between Anglicanism and slavery. As devoted yogis prepare to mark International Yoga Day, we speak to Heather Mason from the Yoga in Healthcare Alliance, which trains people to use yoga to prevent health conditions and we ask the Indian cultural minister for the UK, Amish Tripathi, how he feels about yoga being detached from its spiritual roots. Plus an Anglican church leader in Rwanda responds to his English counterparts' attack on the UK Government's new asylum policy.

Juneteenth is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African Americans. Juneteenth marks the anniversary of the announcement of General Order No. 3 by Union Army general Gordon Granger on June 19, 1865, proclaiming freedom for enslaved people in Texas. Originating in Galveston, the holiday has been celebrated annually on June 19 in various parts of the United States since the 1860s, often broadly celebrating African-American culture. The day was first recognized as a federal holiday in June 2021, when President Joe Biden signed the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act into law.Early celebrations date to 1866, at first involving church-centered community gatherings in Texas. They spread across the South and became more commercialized in the 1920s and 1930s, often centering on a food festival. Participants in the Great Migration out of the South carried their celebrations to other parts of the country. During the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, these celebrations were eclipsed by the nonviolent determination to achieve civil rights, but grew in popularity again in the 1970s with a focus on African American freedom and African-American arts. Beginning with Texas by proclamation in 1938, and by legislation in 1979, each U.S. state and the District of Columbia have formally recognized the holiday in some way. With its adoption in certain parts of Mexico, the holiday became an international holiday. Juneteenth is celebrated by the Mascogos, descendants of Black Seminoles who escaped from slavery in 1852 and settled in Coahuila, Mexico.Celebratory traditions often include public readings of the Emancipation Proclamation, singing traditional songs such as "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" and "Lift Every Voice and Sing", and the reading of works by noted African-American writers, such as Ralph Ellison and Maya Angelou. Some Juneteenth celebrations also include rodeos, street fairs, cookouts, family reunions, park parties, historical reenactments, and Miss Juneteenth contests. In 2021, Juneteenth became the first new federal holiday since Martin Luther King Jr. Day was adopted in 1983.For more podcasts visit, www.steveryan.comSupport the show
It's been a year since Juneteenth was declared a federal holiday and there are still so many mixed emotions around this. Many people have been celebrating this all along and many have been pushing for years to make this holiday official. Now, like everything else, it is quickly becoming commercialized. How do we feel about this? And how do we not lose the meaning and the message? How do you feel, friends? Have a listen and drop us a comment on FB or IG.

In this episode of THINGS HIDDEN, David Gornoski sits down with Bright News editor, Shannon Braswell, and the two start the conversation by talking about America's intervention in Africa. Why did Biden decide to send American troops back into Somalia? The conversation then moves to questions surrounding media manipulation. Are people getting tired of Woke narratives in movies? What makes the cartel of entertainment as powerful as they are today? How important is radio for psychological engineering? What do we often miss in our conversations about slavery?

On this week's episode of TheFallenState TV, host Jesse Lee Peterson is joined by Dr. Nathalie Edmond, a licensed clinical psychologist. Dr. Edmond is an anti-racism consultant, and an intersectional feminist. In this spirited exchange, Jesse and Dr. Edmond discuss modern race relations—both what it means to be a "racist," and what it means an "anti-racist." Dr. Edmond's expertise extends to racial trauma, so they discuss what that means, including the term "microaggression." Jesse asks Dr. Edmond about her belief in Black Liberation Theology, and even her views on slavery, abortion, and good vs. evil. You don't want to miss a very lively dialogue from two people representing *very* different beliefs on today's hottest topics!
On Sunday, Americans across the nation will celebrate Juneteenth. While this is a holiday Black Americans have observed for a long, long time, how can all of us--no matter our race--use this holiday as an opportunity to come together as a country? Boyd revisits some wise words from Reverend Amos Brown, one of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s last students. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Sambosim is an act in which black people embrace cultural stereotypes and a servile attitude towards white people. It would strangely seem that today whites are taking a similar view of themselves, seeing all blacks as kings and queens while they become subservient to a misplaced sense of social justice. Since some argue that a single white slave-holder means that all whites are guilty, then by logical deduction we may declare that a single white abolitionist is a cause for the abolition of white guilt. A white man did after all write the 13th Amendment. But slavery has been the conditional state of existence for virtually all people throughout history and in the United States, such a human atrocity was long ago cleansed by much suffering, war, and the blood of both black and whites. This is a bond that should unite cultures in acceptable harmony while allowing them to still maintain their history, independence, and, if by choice, seclusion, and privacy. Desirable or otherwise, attempting to classify history by current definitions, expectations, and societal norms is the condemnation of ourselves since we will all eventually fall victim in the near future to the ignorances of the present/past. The American Revolution was not fought to maintain slavery any more than the Civil War was fought exclusively to end it. History is anything but polarized and dualistic, black and white.
Hosts: Michael Wiafe & Ellinor ArzbaecherGuests: Troy Williams, Alissa Moore, Marvin Galdamez, Jeronimo AguilarProduction and Marketing: Jarrett Ramones, Tim Haydock, Kody Stoebig & Ellinor ArzbaecherWhat do you know about modern day slavery? Sorry, we mean involuntary servitude. Article 1, Section 6 of the California Constitution currently states: “Slavery is prohibited. Involuntary servitude is prohibited except to punish crime.” Wait...what? What is this 1860?? We sat down with some folks from the grassroots campaign Abolish Bondage Collectively (ABC), a movement “working to to eradicate structural racism and erase vestiges of slavery,” to discuss what this clause means, its impact, and why it should be removed from our state constitution. Our guests detailed some of their own experiences as formerly incarcerated individuals, the deeply ingrained inequities within our justice system, and legislation they are pushing to pass statewide. ABC support ACA 3 – Abolishing Involuntary Servitude. ACA 3 would place a state constitutional amendment on the November 2022 ballot to remove a clause in California's Constitution that allows the practice of involuntary servitude as a means of punishing crimeFor more information: Abolish Bondage CollectivelyThe History of Involuntary Servitude in CaliforniaLegal Services for Prisoners with ChildrenWe'd Love to Hear from You!
