GCCT - An African-American man was sitting in his vehicle parked at Circle K in Stanley, North Carolina earlier this month. From his perspective, he was suddenly surrounded by 4 Gaston County Police officers who took him by surprise.
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.
