American History in Black and White – part 2 of 3

Now for Part 2 of the video “American History in Black and White.”

Tune in at this time next week for the third and final part.

American History in Black and White – part 1 of 3

For me, this is now “old news,” because as a homeschooling family we have always sought out a better and well-rounded history, but for many people, this will be new, and astonishing, information!

If you find history interesting, if you don’t, or just think you know the history of slavery in America, this video will blow your mind.

Points in this part:

  • American revolution – black soldiers, fully integrated armies. Famous revolutionaries: James Armistead, Peter Salem, Prince Whipple.
  • Paintings with surprises
  • Historic Black Writers about blacks in history: William Nell, Carter Woodson, Benjamin Quarles, Joseph Wilson, Booker T. Washington, Edward A. Johnson
  • The Constitution and the “3/5 clause” arguments, origins, intent.
  • Frederick Douglass – history, education, writings, discovery that 3/5 clause is anti-slavery.
  • 1789 – Northwest Ordinance passed, forbidding slavery in new areas
  • 1792 – Democratic National Committee founded
  • 1808 – Congress abolished slave trade (Rev. Absalom Jones, first black bishop in Episcopal Church, gave sermon in Philadelphia commemorating it)
  • 1820 – Jefferson’s Democratic Party now in majority. Their Congress passed Missouri Compromise (reversing Northwest Ordinance), permitting slavery in almost 1/2 of federal territories. Several states then admitted as slave states and, for the first time since the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, slavery officially promoted by Congressional policy.
  • 1850 – Fugitive Slave Law, passed by Democratic Congress. A disaster for free blacks and Underground Railroad at its peak in this time.
  • 1854 – Kansas-Nebraska Act, passed by Democratic Congress, allowed slavery to be introduced into parts of new territories where previously forbidden.
  • May 1854 – Anti-slavery Democrats in Congress formed the (new) Republican party to fight slavery and secure equal rights for black Americans. One founder: Sen. Charles Sumner (had championed desegregation of Boston public schools).
  • 1856 – Sumner’s 2-day long speech in U.S. Senate against slavery. Preston Brooks (Rep – D) from South Carolina clubbed down Sumner on floor of Senate, nearly beating him to death. Many Democrats thought it amusing and that he deserved it. Sumner recovered enough after 3-1/2 years, to return to Senate and give another anti-slavery speech.
  • 1856 – Republicans’ first Presidential election. First party platform had 6 of the 9 planks with bold declarations of equality and civil rights for African-Americans. Democratic Platform was boldly opposite.

Some people may continue on their own to watch the 2nd and 3rd parts, but I will be posting those out next week at this time, anyway.

There is an associated book: “Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black & White” which is “a unique view of the religious and moral heritage of African-Americans.”

Black American Founders

This video is Glen Beck’s May 28, 2010’s Founders’ Friday in which he talks about black American founders with David Barton (of Wall Builders) and Lucas Morel (professor at Washington and Lee University). I would be willing to bet real money that unless you follow Glen or read books written by David Barton, MOST of this will come as a complete surprise to you. If not, let me know so I can congratulate you!

He observes that moving media has typically portrayed blacks in historical shows and movies in subservient / slave / victim roles, and is incensed. Then he shows period paintings (Battle of Bunker Hill, Battle of Lexington, Washington Crossing the Delaware, Marquis de Lafayette, etc.) and points out key black people in the paintings, who were very important, or even that should have been there but were NOT. Things that NOBODY mentions…anymore. Though they used to be taught, until history was scrubbed and re-written in order to promote the victim narrative.

He reveals Black history that most people don’t know and the audience is surprised (first black Speaker of the House was in…1789), then appalled and outraged. So was I. There is so much more that will blow your mind. Watch it and let me know what you discovered and surprised you the most, and your reactions.
