Slavery to Freedom Lecture Series Renamed

Civil rights lecture series renamed to honor Dr. William G. Anderson

Feb 7, 2014 10:00 AM

The MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine’s award-winning civil rights lecture series was renamed as the “Dr. William G. Anderson Lecture Series: Slavery to Freedom” on Feb. 6, prior to the beginning of the 14th edition.

Before a presentation by Detroit Free Press columnist and reporter Rochelle Riley, MSUCOM Dean William Strampel announced that the series was being renamed in honor of the man who was one of its founders and, along with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Ralph Abernathy,  a leader in the civil rights movement.

William G. Anderson, D.O., was a founder of the Albany Movement, a seminal struggle for civil rights in Georgia in the 1960s, and the first African American to have been elected national president of the American Osteopathic Association.

Friend and faculty member of the MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine throughout its history, he has been essential in developing and sustaining the “Slavery to Freedom” lecture series.

To honor his singular achievements as an activist, a physician and cornerstone of this program, the college is proud to name it in his honor: the “Dr. William G. Anderson Lecture Series: Slavery to Freedom.”

Amos and Andy Radio Show via Old Time Radio Network(1928-1955)       : Amos 'n Andy was a situation sketch comedy show based on the African-American community that ran from the 20's throughout the 50's.  Amos 'n Andy was one of the earliest comedy series, first broadcast in 1928, and it inspired many of the comedy duos that followed.  The series ran nightly from 1928 to 1943, and weekly from 1943 to 1955.  Amos 'n Andy was the first radio program distributed by syndication.  The voices of Amos 'n Andy were provided by Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll, who were not African American themselves. The stories revolved around the humorous adventures of two friends, Amos Jones and Andy Brown, who left a farm in Georgia to find a better life in Chicago, where they started a company called the Fresh Air Taxi Company (because the car they bought had no roof!)  Amos was gullible and naive but hardworking, and Andy was a bumbling dreamer.  Another character, George 'The Kingfish' Stevens, was a friend of the duo who was trying to lure them into get rich quick schemes. For more information about the Amos and Andy Radio and Television shows, visit Wikipedia  or the Museum of Broadcast Communications.

Booker T. Washington Recording from Earliest Voices A Gallery from the Vincent Voice Library, part of the Michigan State University Libraries Digital and Multimedia Center. In this 1904 address to the President and visitors to the Atlanta Exposition, Washington speaks of improved race relations and economic conditions in the South. He states, "in no way, has the...value of the American Negro been more fittingly and generously recognized than by the vantages of this magnificent exposition." For Washington, this collaboration served to "cement the friendship" of the two races, and here he calls for camaraderie among not only white and black Americans, but also understanding for the experiences of the new immigrants currently entering the country.

The Living Legacy: Black Colleges in the 21st Century.  American Radioworks, August 2015.  Before the civil rights movement, African Americans were largely barred from white-dominated institutions of higher education. And so black Americans, and their white supporters, founded their own schools, which came to be known as Historically Black Colleges and Universities. HBCU graduates helped launch the civil rights movement, built the black middle class, and staffed the pulpits of black churches and the halls of almost every black primary school before the 1960s. But after desegregation, some people began to ask whether HBCUs had outlived their purpose. Yet for the students who attend them, HBCUs still play a crucial — and unique — role. In this documentary, we hear first-person testimony from students about why they chose an HBCU; and we travel to an HBCU that’s in the process of reinventing itself wholesale.

Voices from the Days of Slavery : Former Slaves Tell Their Stories.  The almost seven hours of recorded interviews presented here took place between 1932 and 1975 in nine Southern states. Twenty-three interviewees, born between 1823 and the early 1860s, discuss how they felt about slavery, slaveholders, coercion of slaves, their families, and freedom. Several individuals sing songs, many of which were learned during the time of their enslavement. It is important to note that all of the interviewees spoke sixty or more years after the end of their enslavement, and it is their full lives that are reflected in these recordings. The individuals documented in this presentation have much to say about living as African Americans from the 1870s to the 1930s, and beyond.  All known recordings of former slaves in the American Folklife Center are included in this presentation. Some are being made publicly available for the first time and several others already available now include complete transcriptions. Unfortunately, not all the recordings are clearly audible. Although the original tapes and discs are generally in good physical condition, background noise and poorly positioned microphones make it extremely difficult to follow many of the interviews.  Courtesy of the Library of Congress, American Memory Project.

White over black : [Winthrop Jordan presents changing American attitudes][Hollywood, California] : [Center for Cassette Studies], [1969]  1 audio file (29 min., 38 sec.)  Vincent Voice Library (Digital) (4 West) Voice 7758 : Winthrop D. Jordan, Professor of History at University of California, Berkeley, and author of "White Over Black," talks about the history of race relations in the United States, and his assessment of issues of interracial sexuality in colonial America. Jordan was the first historian to use Dumas Malone's timeline of Jefferson's activities to demonstrate that he was at Monticello for the conception of each of Sally Hemings' children lending validity to allegations about Thomas Jefferson and a liaison with his slave. Jordan talks about the institution of slavery, the beginnings of the Abolition movement, who actually assisted fugitive slaves to freedom, speculation about how slavery may have ended without a civil war, and the future of race relations. Chicago Tribune book editor Robert Cromie interviews Jordan.

Who Speaks for the Negro?  In 1965, the writer Robert Penn Warren wrote a thoughtful book titled "Who Speaks for the Negro?" To prepare for the writing of this volume, Warren traveled across the United States to interview dozens of people involved with the civil rights movement, including James Baldwin, Stokely Carmichael, Ralph Ellison, Vernon Jordan, and Malcolm X. This wonderful resource created at Vanderbilt University features some of these conversations, digitized from their original reel-to-reel recordings. Visitors can get started by clicking on the "Listen to Interviews" area. Here they can search the interviews by keyword, or just browse the collection by interviewee or subject. For people looking for insights into American history, the civil rights movements of the 1960s, or the African-American experience, this site is one that will warrant numerous return visits.
