This Week In Black History 7-24-13

ALEXANDRE DUMAS For the week of July 24-30 July 24 1651—Anthony (or Antonio) Johnson, a free Black man who had purchased freedom for himself and his wife, is awarded 250 acres of land in North Hampton, Va. Johnson was among the first group of 20 Black indentured servants brought to America in 1619. Indentured servitude was a form of slavery which allowed the person to either work for or purchase his freedom. After becoming free, Johnson became the first wealthy Black person in America. He even purchased five indentured servants of his own. He probably picked up the name “Johnson” from his original owner but in official records from the period he is simply referred to as “Antonio the Negro.”

Inside Conditions…2nd time around

Aubrey Bruce I have grown weary as I am sure many NFL fans have of picking up the daily paper or reading the latest blog profiling another athlete being accused or convicted of using performance enhancing drugs.

OVERTIME 7-24

Bill Neal :10 There’s a price to pay for cheating on your wife…not that I would know…I’ve never cheated! But clearly there must be and I guess it’s a number game. So the game must be this. For every woman you cheated with, that’s how many majors you have to lose before you can win again. Hey Tiger, I guess you got about “25” more losses coming. Hey, don’t blame me. I don’t make the rules. I just pass them along.
