Counter-Revolution of 1776:
Was U.S. Independence War a Conservative Revolt in Favor of Slavery?

Book Signing with Author Gerald Horne

Saturday, July 26, 2014 - 6:30pm

Free.

 

 

A new book from University of Houston professor Gerald Horne revisits America's heroic creation myth and what really happened in 1776 — at the very founding itself. In “The Counter-Revolution of 1776: Slave Resistance and the Origins of the United States of America,” Dr. Horne marshals considerable research to paint a picture of a U.S. that wasn’t founded on liberty, with slavery as an uncomfortable and aberrant remnant of a pre-Enlightenment past, but rather was founded on slavery — as a defense of slavery — with the language of liberty and equality used as window dressing. If he’s right, in other words, then the traditional narrative of the creation of the U.S. is almost completely wrong. Hear this amazing author and get your autographed copy today!

Floritha came to the US to host her own concert in Washington DC, which was held on July 12 and has already begun to build a fan base here.  For the past two years Floritha has won the Namibia Annual Music Award for best R&B singer. She began singing in her school choir and in the African Methodist Episcopal church, Young People’s and Children’s Division.

 

Floritha's second album "Don’t Judge" is an inspirational album encouraging women’s empowerment and helping young women to stand up and fight for themselves. She also uses her music to advocate HIV/AIDS awareness and to encourage and strengthen those living with HIV/AIDS. To top it all off, Floritha is a law student at the University of Namibia.ZTourz, a micro-tourism project of the December 12th Movement, is current organizing a tour of Namibia and Zimbabwe scheduled for November 2014.
