Schooled by Youtube: Enslavement to Emancipation

0 Posted by - March 27, 2018 - Schooled By Youtube

At Black Then, we often see videos that make us stop and think. They frequently reveal information that is not broadcasted to the masses and are created by great talents that are not shown in mainstream media.

In a video posted on UCTTl_ygQZc4_kabRgdKR-hA , we learn more about A TV-16 special presentation. Tune in for this unprecedented television event tracing freedom’s first steps in the Nation’s Capital. “Enslavement to Emancipation” is an informative and compelling television documentary chronicling the history of the Compensated Emancipation Act of April 16, 1862, freeing the enslaved people of Washington, DC. Featured historians and experts describe the creation and history of the city’s annual Emancipation Day celebration and our continuing struggle for full democracy in DC. The documentary also highlights the single largest attempted slave escape in U.S. history — the daring and dramatic bid for freedom aboard a schooner called the Pearl. “Enslavement to Emancipation” recounts the heroic war-time contributions of what was then called the U.S. First Colored Troops, african american slaves-turned-soldiers fighting for the Union during the Civil War. These are just a few of the historic events detailed in this special television production presented only on TV-16.

    I agree with you Cheri. I too am white woman and I study this time period because I want learn and make sure that history in my family does not repeat ever itself. From what I can tell my family owned a plantation but I am trying to search records. I am hopeful that maybe they did the work themselves as they had a large family of their own but the ugly truth of history has yet to reveal itself in my famiy. I pray that they did not own another human being.

    This is my definition of the white slave owners :So who are psychopaths? Broadly speaking, they are people who use manipulation, violence and intimidation to control others and satisfy selfish needs. They can be intelligent and highly charismatic, but display a chronic inability to feel guilt, remorse or anxiety about any of their actions.

    I am white and I am a advocate against child abuse! I am no longer a proud American and cannot believe that our fellow human beings were treated like animals! This makes me sad realizing this was not that long ago and is totally disgusting!! I cannot even imagine living during those times as a slave! Black people in my opinion are the strongest, both mentally and physically!! Remember abuse usually takes at least 4-5 generation to overcome! Amazing that so many survived! These are our true Americans and America is their country not ours!!

    Now, for the more enlightened, here is a link to a remarkable print, an almost entirely unknown image, showing the collective joy that none of us can even fathom. Heading north, following the Northern Star, to freedom…

    Gee whillikers, TheLightascension88, who is the big 'They' that you're talking about? Don't put your head on the pillow at night and dream dreams about how OK slavery was. That is just weird, sick, strange, etc, etc, etc…

    Anthony Bowen purchased his freedom for 425 dollars,which was a lot of money back then,so how can u say slaves were not paid? It is a common misconception that slaves weren't paid. Now if they exaggerate about that…what else r they exaggerating about? A LOT!!! They r not telling u the truth about slavery.
