1619 and the Making of America

Views:342|Rating:3.33|View Time:1:58:31Minutes|Likes:4|Dislikes:2
The John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress convened a symposium that brought together respected scholars to explore the intricate encounters of Africans, Europeans and native people during this significant period in America’s history. In 1619, a Dutch ship with about 20 Africans on board entered a port at the English colony of Jamestown, Virginia. This event is known as the arrival of the first recorded Africans to English North America. Their historic arrival, however, marked the beginning of a trend in colonial America, in which the people of Africa were taken from their motherland and consigned to lifelong slavery.

From 1619 to 1650, during the life span of the first arriving Africans, racial discrimination emerged and chattel slavery would be codified into law. The symposium will ask questions related to the historical importance of these events in 1619. For example, who were the Africans who arrived in Virginia in 1619, where did they come from, what world did they bring with them? What emerged from Africans’ engagement with indigenous Native American populations and their spiritual and cultural life ways, and what is the enduring legacy of this encounter today?

The event also featured a display of treasures and historical items from the Library of Congress’ collections related to the early Americas. The symposium was held in collaboration with the Middle Passage Project of the College of William & Mary, the Virginia Commonwealth’s 2019 Commemoration and Norfolk State University.

Holy Ghost Fire making people act crazy, dance and fall out

Views:78844|Rating:3.96|View Time:7:25Minutes|Likes:218|Dislikes:57
Many times in our services the Holy Ghost fire will fall with showers of blessings upon the people it made them dance, shout, cry and fall out in the spirit. The spirit would make people fall and do some crazy things and protect them while they fell making them literally invulnerable. They would fall so hard that we feared for the safety and asked were they alright and they never knew what happened. All they felt was the glory of the Lord enveloping them with and uncontrollable joy that just made you want more of God. They were enveloped in an incredible joyous energy that caused them to praise God with all of their might. We knew it had to be God. If you have never experienced it, you don’t know what you are missing. I often said of my mother (who is in heaven now) who is seen running on this video that she could dance her way through a mine field. I saw her shout and dance and one time fall 10 feet off a stage on her head on cement floor and she never felt a thing. Sometimes visitors would come in the service witnessing this and thinking people were crazy and faking until the Holy Spirit got on them and make them act just as crazy dancing before the Lord with all their might. We would laugh and rejoice at the awesome power and goodness of God. For those of you who wonder where are the scriptures for this, here are a couple. Psalm 18:33 He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet, and setteth me upon my high places. Psalm 149:3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. 2 Samuel 6:14 And David danced before the LORD with all his might; To visit my website go to www.keithbarr.com
