DIANE MILLER, NUGRR/MGR., “HARRIET TUBMAN VISITOR’S CENTER”, CARL NELSON AND FORT NEGRO’S FIXICO

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH,

Good morning, today is May 10th, 2017, yesterday on the WOLDC Radio-One Carl Nelson Show, I enjoyed the absolutely wonderful experience of listening to Mr. Nelson (arguably “America’s #1 Black Talk Show Host”) interview Ms. Diane Miller the National Underground Railroad/Network to Freedom’s Manager and the New Harriet Tubman Visitor Center ‘s Superintendent. It was a classic example of how a professional Journalist/host interacts with an extremely knowledgeably guest. The callers were lighting up the phone banks at Cathy Hughes Radio Station and the accomplished National Manager Diane Miller was answering their sincere questions, proficiently and adding interesting details.

I was deliriously happy for and proud of both of these awe-inspiring personalities whom I deeply respect and admire. The topic was about the upcoming National Underground Railroad /Network to Freedom’s upcoming  exciting Annual Conference entitled: “On the Edge of Freedom”, to be held in Cambridge, Maryland from May 18th, to May 21st. Check the link below for details. I was happy for Mr. Carl Nelson because of the generous manner in which he has pursued his career for years as an award winning Talk Show Host and I felt the same about NUGRR Program Manager Ms. Diane Miller , I have a professional history with Ms. Miller .

In 2012, I was one of 11 “VIP”  Descendants who were chosen and featured, in that year’s NUGRR Annual Conference that was dedicated to the Black Seminole and Gullah Geechee of the Western Hemisphere, held in St. Augustine, Florida. I had been recommened by Dr. Kevin Mulroy, Author of :” FREEDOM ON THE BORDER” and “THE SEMINOLE FREEDMEN”. What an incredible  life-changing experience. As a result of my taking part in that memorable event, I became a Private-Sector-Partner for the National Underground Railroad/Network to Freedom 1998 Act and have been active in my capacity as a Partner since that Time. I also, called into Carl’s show during the interview to make a comment. Below is a transcript of my brief call:

“Greetings, Brother Carl and Diane Miller. Thank you, so much for doing this interview. I’m a Private-Sector-Partner for the National Underground Railroad/Network to Freedom 1998 Act. There is actually a Public Law that says these stories must be told. Diane is my “FEARLESS LEADER” and she  does a tremendous job ! So, I hope that the community comes out to support the program” Call ends.

2020 U.S. PRESIDENT & V.P. ELECTION COULD FEATURE: PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND DAUGHTER IVANKA TRUMP KUSHNER VS. REV. JESSE JACKSON, SR. AND DAUGHTER SANTITA JACKSON

Could President Donald Trump, as a result of his recent political win ask the Republican Congress and Senate to allow him to add his daughter Ivanka Trump Kushner to the future 2020 election as his choice for Vice President?

If he is successful in doing this, I respectfully nominate the Civil Rights Icon and International Goodwill Ambassador Reverend Jesse Jackson, Sr. and his brilliant daughter and “KEEP HOPE ALIVE” Radio Talk Show Co- Host Santita Jackson to run for President and Vice President. For the first time in World history a Father/Daughter  Dominant Culture Team would take on a Father/Daughter African-Native American Team.

In a no holds barred series of  16  “Take no Prisoners” debates, over the years leading up to the election. 8 of the debates would be held in Trump territory              and 8 should take place in areas that could be described as Jackson territory.

“ARE WE READY TO RUMBLE”…”LET’S GET IT ON”. I think it would be fun and I believe that President Trump could convince his political allies to go ahead with it.

DEAR “BROTHER” PRESIDENT TRUMP… ANDREW JACKSON AND THE CIVIL WAR WAS DIFFERENT FOR US, SAYS FORT NEGRO’S FIXICO

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH,

Today is May 2nd, 2017, yesterday, I read on the internet that President Trump, in an interview with a reporter said that He believed that, had Andrew Jackson been president in the era leading up to the Civil War that he would have avoided it. Before, I continue I should admit that I didn’t vote for you and that I, for years have been a constituent of the Honorable Congresswoman Maxine Waters, I’m so glad that we have her as a fearless Champion of our community. She tells it like it is. I now am quite sure that you were speaking from your heart when you spoke about Andrew Jackson your views on him concern me greatly.

Last year , just after your  the election, I called in to Mr. Stevie Wonder’s radio station, on his early morning #1 Black Community Talk show, “Frontpage” . Below is a brief transcript of a small portion of my call:

(My call begins:) “Good Morning Mr. Avi Bernard, Hallelujah Brother ! Voting is important ,especially voting for the President. Now about the election, what scares me the most is that Newt Gingrich has said : “That the president, that President Elect Trump is most like is Andrew Jackson”. Who was a Slave-Owning, Indian Killing President, who took land from Indians and created “COTTON PRISONS” for Black Families. He caused the Fort Negro Massacre ( that led to 3 wars 42 years of hostilities),  The Massacre at Horseshoe Bend (hundreds were slaughtered), The Trail of Tears (thousands perished) and he chose Chief Justice Roger Taney for the Supreme Court. Who ruled in the “Dred Scott” decision that : “Blacks have NO rights that Whites need to Respect”.

General Andrew Jackson, colluded with President James Madison to, without congressional approval and at tax-payer’s expense illegally send a US military Slave -hunting expedition into Spanish Florida. There hundreds of Blacks who were fortunate enough to have escaped U.S. Slavery were starting new lives in a neighboring state that gave them asylum. To the U.S. Slavocracy, they were considered as “Banditti/ Terrorist”, therefore President Madison and General Andrew Jackson, issued orders to the U.S. Military to violate the Territorial Sovereignty of Spanish Florida to: “Destroy the negro fort and return the stolen property to their rightful owners”. I guess that’s when “America was Great”.

Entire Black Families and remnants of families were doomed to perpetual enslavement in “Cotton, Cane and Rice Prisons” sentenced for life or until some untimely end freed them brought on by being worked or whipped to death”. Each time, I see a Cotton Field populated with Slave Corporation Inmates, I always ask myself how many Indians did Andrew Jackson have to kill to clear the land for “planting time”. We must never forget, that when the colonizers first came to America and they wondered how they would get the land. It was decided then that :”Indians have no rights that they as CONQUERORS need to respect”. These were the “GOOD OLD DAYS ” for Andrew Jackson and his contemporaries.

It is time for a Cultural Renaissance similar to the Harlem Renaissance, except instead of using the “New Negro” as our role model , we use Indigenous and  Maroon Freedom Fighters as our Heros and Sheroes and re-tell Western Hemisphere History through their lives.  Let us tell the true story of what Discovery, Colonization, TransAtlanticSlavery, Removal, Manifest Destiny, and etc. really meant. As far as Andrew Jackson’s views about the Civil War are concerned being a “Man of his Time”, the Pro Slavery proponents of that era wanted to expand Slavery not just on the North American continent, they also wanted to expand it into the Caribbean, Central and South America.

Honor and Respect, Phil “Pompey”Fixico, Seminole Maroon Descendant and President of the Semiroon Historical Society.

REV. JESSE JACKSON’S “WVON 1690 am. “KEEP HOPE ALIVE” RADIO SHOW WITH “FORT NEGRO’S” FIXICO

Hooray and Hallelujah,

It’s Sunday morning, April 30th, 2017 and Reverend Jesse Jackson and his daughter Co-host (daughter) Santita Jackson are again airing their powerful and precisely presented “Live” radio show. They always have informed callers, a topical “Topic”, plus a panel of knowledgeable experts, giving their “Take” on things. Today’s subject was a combination of  the: “Environment and President Trump’s 100 day”. Below is a transcript of my call:

“Greetings Reverend Jackson, Santita and guests, “When we forget History ,we are in danger of repeating it’. Last year, I as a Descendant participated in the 1st official recognition of the “Fort Negro Battle and Massacre”. 200 years ago President James Madison and President Trump’s role model General Andrew Jackson illegally and without permission from congress sent a military force into Spanish Florida, where hundreds of Blacks were taking asylum from U.S. Slavery. Their orders were to “Destroy the Negro Fort and return the stolen property to their rightful owners”.

“The Blacks taking refuge in  an abandoned and fully stocked fort , refused to be dragged back into Slavery. A U.S. Gunship heated a cannon ball and fired it into the fort’s ammunition and 270 occupant’s were instantly destroyed. 200 of the victims were Black Women and Children and 70 were male defenders both Black and Indian.” ( Reverend Jackson speaks:

“Fixico stay on the line buddy, I want you to send me everything that you have on that” (1st hour call ends)

That call was made in the 1st hour of the show, at the beginning of the 2nd hour Reverend Jackson came back to me again and I repeated the basics of my earlier statement. I have also forwarded the links to him of articles, by scholars William L. Katz and Andrew Wasserman ,plus videos. What should be emphasized here is that the action taken to destroy “Fort Negro “precipitated a conflict that lasted for 42 years, which included 3 wars and non-stop hostilities. I believe that what the Fort Negro Battle and Massacre” tells us is that we must use caution, patience and diplomacy and avoid making Korea another “Fort Negro”.

CARL NELSON’S “BIG SHOW” ON CATHY HUGHES WOLDC RADIO AND FORT NEGRO’S FIXICO

Hooray and Hallelujah,

Today is April 28th, 2017 and on Carl Nelson’s “Big Show” it’s: “Open Phone Friday”. People are calling in from across the country and around the world.  The award winning Host Mr. Carl Nelson as usual is working his magic. Anyone can talk about anything but one hot topic for this week is a comment made by “POWER TALKER” Dr. Umar Johnson  earlier this week. The extremely popular Dr. Johnson said that he could never trust a Black man who married a White woman. He added that a Brother with a White Wife could never have “Black Consciousness”. The calls poured in, after a caller from California challenged Dr. Umar Johnson’s position in no uncertain terms. He essentially said “What business is it of his”, referring to Dr. Johnson.

Carl Nelson’s listening audience is in part composed of many of the greatest Black Scholars in the world. He had asked me to update the show about my efforts to help influence a  “New” Cultural Renaissance . Below is a transcript of my call into the show:

“Greetings Brother Carl, I have for some years advocated for a Cultural Renaissance, similar to the Harlem Renaissance, except instead of using the “New Negro” as the role model, that we should use “Indigenous and Maroon Freedom Fighters”. Well it appears that it is here, at last . It has been ignited by the recent rise of “People of Color” embracing the concept of Aboriginal Blacks as the 1st Americans. This , I think is finally giving African-Americans their “EMOTIONAL COMING TO AMERICA”.

“Concerning Dr. Umar Johnson and the other gentleman, we have to make room for both opinions but I don’t believe that we can , at the end of the day, advance Humanity by using Race. Hitler proved that”.

“However by using Culture, being traditions, customs and habits that govern our behavior, some of us can find “COMMON GROUND” with people who are different  than ourselves”

Carl Nelson speaks: “Thanks for that Fixico”. Call ends.

EASTER SUNDAY 2017 ON REV. JESSE JACKSON’S RADIO SHOW WITH FIXICO

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH,

IT’S EASTER SUNDAY, APRIL 16TH, 2017 THERE ARE MANY HEADLINE NEWS STORIES THAT COULD AND SHOULD BE DISCUSSED. THE THEME OF TODAY’S “KEEP HOPE ALIVE BROADCAST” HOSTED BY REV. JESSE JACKSON AND HIS DAUGHTER SANTITA JACKSON WAS ABOUT THE UNITED AIRLINES PASSENGER BEING FORCEFULLY BUMPED FROM HIS 1ST CLASS SEAT BEFORE TAKE-OFF FROM CHICAGO’S O’HARE AIRPORT. HIS NAME WAS DR. DAVID DAO A VIETNAMESE-AMERICAN, WHO RECEIVED MULTIPLE INJURIES WHEN HE REFUSED TO GIVE UP HIS SEAT.

THIS STORY HAS TAKEN ON INTERNATIONAL IMPLICATIONS AS A RESULT OF IT BEING FILMED BY ANOTHER PASSENGER AND THE VIDEO OF IT HAS WITH THE HELP OF SOCIAL MEDIA AND NEWS OUTLETS GONE VIRAL. IT HAS BEEN REPORTED THAT THE REASON THAT DR. DAO WAS ASKED TO GIVE UP HIS SEAT, IS BECAUSE UNITED AIRLINES HAD 4 EMPLOYEES THAT THEY NEEDED TO BE FLOWN TO ANOTHER DESTINATION TO KEEP THEIR OPERATIONS ON SCHEDULE.

WE DON’T KNOW HOW TRUE THIS IS, HOWEVER WE CAN ALL BE REASONABLY SURE THAT IT WILL ALL COME OUT IN EITHER A COURT OF LAW OR IN THE PARTIE’S ATTORNEY’S OFFICE DURING SETTLEMENT PROCEDURES. THERE WAS AS USUAL A PANEL OF EXPERTS ON REV. JACKSON’S “KEEP HOPE ALIVE” WVON RADIO 1690 AM SHOW THAT BROADCASTS OUT OF CHICAGO,ILLINOIS. BELOW IS A TRANSCRIPT OF MY CALL INTO THE SHOW:

“HAPPY RESURRECTION SUNDAY EVERYONE! HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH! HOPE IS STILL ALIVE!! I’M SO VERY PROUD OF THE PROGRAM TODAY. WE CAN’T LOSE WITH THE STUFF THAT WE USE BECAUSE THIS IS TRULY A MULTI-RACIAL, MULTI-CULTURAL MOMENT AND MOVEMENT. OUR STRENGTH IS IN OUR ALL-INCLUSIVE DIVERSITY.
AN AMERICAN CULTURAL RENAISSANCE IS COMING AND THE ROLE MODELS FOR THAT RENAISSANCE WILL BE AMERICAN FREEDOM FIGHTERS OF ALL RACES COLORS AND CREEDS”.CALL ENDS.

Eastern Standard time and it is coming out of Washington,DC.

Due to an emerging News story and programming changes, Gloria “MaMa G” Simms Paramount Chief and Grand Gaama of Jamaica’s Maroons and Akilah Jaramogi’s who Represents Trinidad and Tabago’s Merikin Maroons, proposed segment could not be recorded. However there are plans for a future show where they will ,of course be included.Mr. Carl Nelson who was very happy with the show ,when I spoke to him this morning told me to inform him as soon as a Meeting of Maroons is scheduled.

Professor William L. Katz, Author of “BLACK INDIANS” A HIDDEN HERITAGE helped interview Dr. Ambassador Fidelia Graand-Galon who he is well acquainted with and he has written about her in relation to “OPERATION SURINAME”:MAROON DAY 2015 which was when I was brought to Suriname by the MWCoC and visited 10 Maroon villages on three major rivers. Ambassador Graand-Galon was part of the “A” Team as the Protocol Officer/Interpreter and Guide,
UCLA Grad Student Mr. Jeremy Peretz was the Photographer and
Documentarian(see photo above). Below is a transcript of my call into the show:

“Greetings Brother Carl, U miti ooo (good afternoon) Queen Mafide m’pikin sisa (my little sister) Aa de fu gi daa (Welcome) Gaatangi fu yu (Thank you) for all that you have done for the Maroons of the Western Hemisphere and especially for me. Your presence makes our sun shine brighter Most Royal Daughter of the Okanisi Ndyuka
Maroons of the Republic of Suriname.” My call ended.

However , Dr. Ambassador Fidelia Graand-Galon’s appearance was awesome she was, knowledgeable,professional, warm and passionate about the subject of Maroons in the Disapora. The listening audience was truly enthralled by the information that she imparted and they are eager for more.
