From Before It Was Illegal To Read To A Cyber Reading



Thank you to the artists and other friends who will be joining the cyber reading 11/11-13, 2011 of the dynamic book BLACK PEOPLE AND THEIR PLACE IN WORLD HISTORY by Dr. Leroy Vaughn, MD, MBA, Historian, Humanitarian and Honorary African Chief.



This is a Griot's mission. After decades of research, Dr. Vaughn's Black history book was a series of 5 minute history lessons broadcast on KPFK Radio. That was followed by a series of articles for the Los Angeles Sentinel entitled "Our African Heritage", a weekly series written from his floor to ceiling room of Black history books that he has built and devoured since the 1960's.  


Black history is Dr. Vaughn's passion and his insights revolutionized my life.  From his articles I learned about Black Wall Street and the grit it sometimes takes to overcome anything.  From his piece about the five other Black presidents are I learned 'no tellin' whose passin or if they even know...they did and took the shot anyway. Hatshepsut, Queen Nzinga and many other women throughout the book stand as historic proof of femine power expressed in ultimate leadership positions. West Point's Henry Flipper will show you why Colin Powell respects him today. Wait until you meet the creator of the PC, the man with the fan, IBM's Dr. Mark Dean.  

This book is a combination of Dr. Vaughn's articles and photographic supporting evidence…a wonderful journey that helps with the transformation from his-story to truth-story. Only the truth will set us free.

So if you've decided to participate in the reading or just want to post whatever to the web, here's the how to notes.




To send a webeo (web video) for inclusion in the cyber reading of Black People And Their Place In World History, the process is:

Martin Luther King on Technology


"When we look at modern man, we have to face the fact that modern man suffers from a kind of poverty of the spirit, which stands in glaring contrast with a scientific and technological abundance. We've learned to fly the air as birds, we've learned to swim the seas as fish, yet we haven't learned to walk the Earth as brothers and sisters."
This clip comes from the documentary "Berkeley in the Sixties" I have no more info about this speech. If you do, please post it

Somebody Told A Lie - MLK that's never quoted


We here at Black Independence Day came across this clip, and were in tears, for it epitomizes our mission. We had never heard or seen this before. In this clip Martin speaks about what all Black folk, African-American and Negro alike should continue to strive for, not an emancipation or the results of being emancipated.
But, as we say here, a day of Black Independence, a Declaration of our Freedom and celebration of our Black Heritage. A Black Independence Day. on Youtube.
