«WINGS:» Women’s International News Gathering Service: Wade in the Water, parts 2 and 2 #9
Dienstag, 21. Jun 2022, 06:30 bis 07:00 Uhr

Wade in the Water, parts 1 and 2 Description: As of 2022 Juneteenth is a US federal holiday. First celebrated by Black communities in Texas, it marks June 19th, 1865, when Union troops arrived at the port of Galveston, to enforce Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation. While Americans celebrate that enslaved people were freed, many refuse to hear the cruel facts of slavery or allow them to be taught. The late Marian E. Barnes was a storyteller, author, historian, child advocate, and Black community leader in Austin, Texas. This week and next you hear her read her story based on historical records - a story nobody would publish because it depicts some of the cruel and violent practices and ways of speaking that slaveholders used to control and abuse their captives, throughout what Barnes terms 300 years of holocaust. Part two includes a warning to listeners. No FCC rules are violated.

Host(s): Frieda Werden Featured Speakers/Guests: Popular storyteller, historian, community leader and child advocate Marian E. Barnes produced several books, including Black Texans: They Overcame; a series of three books of African-American tales under titles beginning Talk That Talk; and Twelve Steps to Bringing Out the Best in Every Child. She died in 2012, at age 89.
