8 PM EST - “The last four or five hundred years of European contact with Africa produced a body of literature that presented Africa in a very bad light and Africans in very lurid terms. The reason for this had to do with the need to justify the slave trade and slavery.” - Chinua Achebe
7:00 PM EST - Max and Yusuf have been providing educational radio podcast content for the abolitionist movement since 2010. On 1/17/2021 we are joined by our former co-host Yohanan Elijah. We're also being syndicated on the Black Talk Radio Network courtesy of Scotty T Reid. In the midst of a national insurrection by white supremacists, these Veteran Abolitionist Witnesses come together for the first time in years to testify of what they have seen and discuss the bigger picture of then, now, and tomorrow.
Donald J. Trump has become the first POTUS to be impeached twice. While some pundits on both the left and right will claim that the first impeachment was a witch hunt, I disagree, Trump was absolutely guilty of the charges that a formal House inquiry found evidence that he had solicited foreign interference in the 2020 U.S. presidential election to help his re-election bid, and then obstructed the inquiry itself by telling his administration officials to ignore subpoenas for documents and testimony.
We will be joined tonight by two guest speakers. New Abolitionists Radio welcomes J Justin and Gwen Ragsdale. Curators of the “Lest We Forget” – Black Holocaust Museum. Home to the private Ragsdale collection of slavery artifacts and Jim Crow memorabilia owned by J. Justin & Gwen Ragsdale. The exhibit includes authentic slave shackles, chains, whips, branding irons and other items that were used for human bondage and punishment. It also includes numerous objects from the Jim Crow era that negatively depict Blacks. The museum is in need of funds for maintenance and other renovations. You can donate through their GoFund Me campaign.
Mrs. Ragsdale is also the author of PECULIAR RELATIONSHIPS, a fictional novel that describes the evolving relationships between black women and white women from slavery to current day. You can purchase it on Amazon.
New Abolitionists Radio seeks to educate the public and agitate for an end of 21st Century Slavery and Human Trafficking. It is an extension of the group Move To Abolish 21st Century Slavery
