Celebrating Black History Month
Lessons of Hayti
Wednesday, February 12th, 9:00 PM EST
“Lessons of Hayti,” the 2013 winner of ‘Best Documentary’ at the Harlem International Film Festival, details the dramatic rise and fall of Black economic power in America and the historic Black mecca called Hayti.
The 1-hour documentary examines the unique history of Black self-sufficiency and political power in the United States from its origins just following President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 up to the second inauguration of America’s first Black President, Barack Obama, 150 years later, and how that power has eroded since the Civil Rights era, leaving Black America in a current state of economic turmoil.
As told by prominent historians, scholars, former Hayti residents, and a survivor of the Tulsa Riots of 1921, “The Lessons of Hayti ” details a history of Black success in America, including the creation of over 100 independent Black communities, nearly 100 Black Colleges and Universities, and wielding massive political power in the former Confederate States, all within 50 years of the end of slavery.
“The Lessons of Hayti” also examines the demise of these historic Black communities over the last 100 years due to both racial violence and political backstabbing triggered by pivotal historic events including the landmark case “Plessy vs. Ferguson” in 1898, the end of of World War 1 in 1918, and the civil rights movement of the 1950’s and 60’s

George Washington Carver-Faith in History
Wednesday, February 5th, 9PM EST
Presented by St. Louis historian and author, William Federer, this two-part program tells Carver’s inspirational story because of the incredible obstacles he had to overcome, and because of his deep faith in Jesus Christ. He was born into slavery, experienced the loss of most of his family, felt the sting of poverty, and encountered door-closing racism. However, before his life was over, Carver was an internationally known chemist who advised Presidents and Congress, and was offered jobs by prominent men like Henry Ford and Thomas Edison. His great mission in life was to help bring education and moral uplift to those less fortunate.
Carver is best known for discovering hundreds of uses for the peanut, which in turn gave the post-Civil War South a soil-replenishing crop that could be turned into a viable economic future. His horticultural discoveries took place at Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, led by Booker T. Washington. He would teach his students in the classroom, but also journey out to the poor farmers, instructing them on how to take care of the soil.
