In the early to late 1940s, audio recordings of three ex-slave men document their struggle and capture the horrors of slavery. Part of the New Deal programs, these recordings were coordinated to archive the testaments of the few surviving victims of slavery. The interviews were conducted in cities based on the sound of automobiles in the background. Preserved by the Library of Congress, the recordings are eerie and broken because of the deterioration of the audio tape itself. Fountain Hughes, Wallace Quarterman and George Johnson all were victims of slavery in the mid-19th century. Very old now their testaments are chilling reminders of the United States past.
Since the beginning of slavery, leaders called on their faith to justify the immoral actions of the slave trade. These strong preachers for their communities’ strategically defined the meanings of scriptures to sway members into the ideals of North vs. South. Richard Furman and

There has been much controversy involving racial injustices. From the many killings by police officers of innocent and unarmed African Americans, to well recognized symbolism that may have negative connotations to some such as the Confederate flag. Many of these problems have been brought up a numerous amount of times, but never resolved. It would be a much better world if there was not any division among us. If finding solutions to these issues is a goal that is desired to be achieved, then only talking about the problem must stop, and action needs to take place.

HISTORY OF PRESENT ILLNESS: David Lockman is here for followup for his traumatic saw injury to his right knee. He is about two and half weeks out now. He was seen, I believe a week or so ago or two weeks ago perhaps, by one of my partners. He was sent for therapy, although he has had some delay in therapy. He just started therapy. He did get a blood clot, I believe recently, and is now on Xarelto for that. He states that the swelling in his leg is much better, at this point. He does continue to smoke, however. I believe he is a half a pack or one pack per day smoker. Again, I went over smoking cessation with him, as well as the risks of uncontrolled bleeding with the Xarelto that he currently on. He understands this, so he should

Since the PADC trip is on Tuesday, I think it would make sense for me to spend the night at home and meet the group on Tuesday, June 21, at PALC at 8:30-9:00 am. I will spend the day at PALC and PADC and then drive myself back to Long Island afterwards.
The author wants me to believe that Dr. Jay Grossman is perfect and is the best dentist. I say this because even though the claim is implied, the author still provides several reasons as to why readers should choose him as their specified dentist.
Petitioner John L. Yates, a commercial fisherman, was operating in the Gulf of Mexico when a federal agent conducted an offshore inspection and found that the ship's catch had undersized red grouper, in violation of United States federal conservation regulations. The federal agent instructed Captain Yates to keep the undersized fish segregated; Yates instructed his crew to throw the undersized fish overboard, resulting in Yates being charged under 18 United States Code §1519. This provision, originating from the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, states that a person may be fined or imprisoned for up to 20 years if the person "knowingly alters, destroys, mutilates, conceals, covers up, falsifies, or makes a false entry in any record, document, or
1. What needs to be “re-balanced” in American society? Galbraith believe that rebalancing the flow of goods and services with which our wealth each year rewards us.
