KNOW YOUR BLACK HISTORY: Slave Revolts Part 1 - Blacks and Native Americans: The Powerful Alliance You’ll Never Learn About in School

Consider what most of us know about slave revolts: that there were a few major slave revolts, like the Nat Turner revolt in 1830, which were quickly put down.

KNOW YOUR BLACK HISTORY: A Terrible Compromise - When Black Americans became “three-fifths of a person”

Southern and slaveholding interests dominated the founding of our country. Twelve of the first 16 presidents owned slaves. Eight of these presidents owned slaves while they were acting as president.  Fifty of the first 82 years of the United States were governed by slaveholding presidents. At the 1787 Constitutional Convention, the issue was not whether to abolish the evil abomination of slavery in the newly founded United States, the issue of contention…

Two steps away from Levinsky square, in Tel-Aviv (Israel), you’ll find a spot like no other. Amid the bustling streets of the city’s most mixed neighborhood, Maman Philomene’s bar is a refuge for the non-Jew Africans and all those in love with French-speaking Africa.
