‘Slavery in America’ …. “🤨 Didn’t End after the Civil War …. A New Form of Enslavement …. Still Permeates the American Psyche 🤨 …. “!!

SLAVERY ISN’T A CHOICE

It could never be!

Recently an American in the music sphere stated that ‘slavery is a choice’.

Interesting to note, he’s an African American himself.

The current political, social and cultural climate in America is such that it lends itself to this type of thinking. The mask is off. Racism, white supremacy, dominance, distortion of facts, ignorance of history or plain shameless self-serving.

You pick the reason!

I find it so difficult to wrap my mind around this type of thinking. I can’t fathom how this happens.

“When you hear about slavery for 400 years … for 400 years?

That sounds like a choice. You were there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all.

It’s like we’re mentally imprisoned.”

Slavery might have ended on paper after the Civil War, but many white landowners did everything they could to exploit newly freed slaves well into the 20th century.

Thousands of black laborers across the South were forced to work against their will as late as the 1960s – a new form of enslavement that went on in the shadows of rural America.

On this episode of DAILY VICE, we traveled to Louisiana to meet genealogist Antoinette Harrell, the “slavery detective of the South,” who tracks down cases of modern-day slavery and abusive labor practices.

They talk to a man whose family was held on a plantation against their will into the 1950’s and Antoinette explains how she uses decades-old records to uncover how slavery was perpetuated long after the Civil War ended.

~RISE~

Inspired by a true story, a working-class community is awakened when its high school theater program takes on an unconventional new leader

As dedicated teacher and family man Lou Mazzuchelli takes over the lagging department, he encourages his students to unleash their creativity and explore new means of self-expression.

Rise - Season 1

But even though the students discover talents and ambitions they never knew they had, not everyone in town is thrilled. Upset by challenges brought by change, enraged faculty and skeptical parents contest Mr. Mazzu’s galvanizing efforts.

But with passionate fervor running through the town’s veins, no one can deny a revolution is underway.

The Earth Anthem penned by poet-diplomat Abhay K was translated into Portuguese and launched in Brasilia to commemorate World Environment Day.

Abhay had written the anthem in 2008, inspired by the Upanishads and the image of the Earth taken by the Apollo 17 crew. He penned it in Russia’s St Petersburg and so far it has been translated into 30 languages.

According to IANS, he said,

“Whichever country we come from, we all have our planet in common. A tribute to her in the form of an anthem, therefore, should be able to find favour with people from all countries. Such an anthem will not only connect all of us across the world through a common musical thread but will also inspire the next generation to put the planet before themselves.”

For his Earth Anthem, he was termed ‘inspiring’ by UNESCO, Habitat for Humanity, and many others. He has plans of continuing the the Earth Anthem project by collaborating with the world’s leading musicians and singers to create consecutive editions.
