New Abolitionist Radio will discuss how deeply embedded the lie of the 13th amendment ending slavery is in our history and psyche. Max Parthas says, “The most legitimate and accredited people and educational institutions of this nation support a bold faced lie. I'd like to know why. I'd also like our listeners to start challenging this concept openly”.
For instance a quote that comes DIRECTLY from the Cornell University Library reads,
The Thirteenth Amendment horizontal rule “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” On January 31, 1865—two years after the presentation of the Emancipation Proclamation, and three months before the end of the Civil War—the Thirteenth Amendment passed through both houses of Congress, ending almost 250 years of slavery in the United States."
Today the President gave a speech in Washington DC at the Let Freedom Ring event held to mark the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream speech” and the he certainly did his part to further the myth of slavery being abolished by mentioning that he was standing in the shadow the great liberator referring to Abraham Lincoln while he gave his speech.
We will also share some of the latest news involving slavery and 21st Century slavery.
Tonight’s featured abolitionist is Robert Purvis (1810-1898).
