Bonus Content - Jessica Jane Robinson / Resilience Birthright
In this episode I am joined by Jessica Jane Robinson.  Jessica talks to me about reggae, becoming Miss Alameda and climate change . In the show Jessica mentions her movie "Recycle woman" and so for your viewing pleasure I have tracked down the film and you can watch it here: https://vimeo.com/57430675 She also mentions Reggae Singers Rankin Scroo and Ginger  https://youtu.be/ioOdH0wyX34 And below is a clip of the legendary Yellow Man performing at Reggae Sun-splash in Jamaica https://youtu.be/0g7v1lobSlU Jessica Robinson, selected candidate for Miss Alameda, was born at Oakland Children’s Hospital on April 5th 1984, to Pamela Jane Proctor and George Robinson. George Robinson owned his own Auto Body Shop and had his own reggae band George and the Wonders. Pamela helped promote reggae music in the late 70’s and was a huge part of the movement that brought reggae to the United States. The reggae music industry is how Jessica’s parents met. In August 1994, her life changed dramatically! Jessica’s mother passed away and her father had to raise her on his own. Losing her mother greatly impacted her life‐ Jessica went from an out‐ going, happy, free spirited ten years old, to a confused, lonely child. She lost the aspiration to communicate with her peers. She felt they did not understand her life. She felt like an outsider. Her father was a strict parent and lacked the experience to raise a young girl entering her teens. A breach developed between them. George and Jessica could not easily get along trying to balance a teenager’s social priorities and the core curriculum of her school. By the time she was sixteen, and in high school, her father granted her to get legal emancipation and allowed her to live with Juanita Blair (whom she knows as a grandmother.) Jessica has kindly given me a few of pages her amazing comic resilience Birthright that can be downloaded from my website: www.blackhistorybuff.com you can find the Black History Buff Podcast at: Spotify https://open.spotify.com/show/6CDExrHONAzUy8ksCgXsYy Anchor https://anchor.fm/blackhistorybuff Google Podcasts https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy8yNzMxMDIwL3BvZGNhc3QvcnNz Breaker https://www.breaker.audio/black-history-buff Pocket Casts https://pca.st/H9y8 RadioPublic https://play.radiopublic.com/black-history-buff-WezjVV Stitcher https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/anchor-podcasts/black-history-buff Find more at Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/Blackhistorybuff/posts Find me on Instagram:  @blackhistorybuff777 and finally Support Black history buff at Paypal: paypal.me/blackhistorybuff777 Thank you for all your support ps you can also email me at info@blackhistorybuff.com

Bonus Content - No dogs, No Blacks, No Irish
This is an interview completed with the Family members of Asquith Xavier. The Interview took place over the phone with Ebanie Xavier and Edrina Xavier, who speak about their inspiring ancestor at length and give us an insight into what life was like in Britain in the 1960's. Asquith Camile Xavier was a West Indian-born Briton who ended a colour bar at British Railways in London by fighting to become the first non-white train guard at Euston railway station in 1966. Trevor Phillips, the chairman of the Commission for Racial Equality, said in 2006: "Asquith's stand against discrimination brought to light the inadequacy of early race discrimination laws and persistent widespread discrimination faced by ethnic minorities." A plaque at the station commemorates his achievement. Xavier was born on 18 July 1920 in Dominica, which was then a British colony. He was a member of the Windrush generation of British African-Caribbean people who migrated to the United Kingdom after the second world war to fill vacancies in service industries.

Bonus Content - Rory Flack: Ebony on Ice
Welcome of the first of the "Your stories told your way" Segment While interacting with people on Instagram, I often get contacted by individuals who have either carved out a place in history for themselves or have a connection to someone who has. So this segment is to give those people a chance to tell those stories for themselves. Unedited and raw, this recording is a conversation I was privileged enough to have with Figure Skating legend Rory Flack. She has a fantastic story and is the first African American to perform a black flip on Ice in a professional setting. Flack began skating at age 5. At age 13, she met the pioneer for African Americans in figure skating, Mabel Fairbanks. Fairbanks inspired Flack to continue skating after wanting to stop at an early age due to racism. Two years later, Debi Thomas, Bobby Beauchamp and Rory Flack skated to three medals at the US National Championships. This was the first time three African Americans competed at the Nationals, and they all earned spots on the international team. In 1986, Flack won the junior bronze medal at the U.S. Championships. She also competed internationally, winning the silver medal at the 1987 Grand Prix International St. Gervais. Her performance at the 1987 U.S. Championships attracted national attention and earned her an appearance with footage on Saturday Night Live. It was the first time a figure skater was on the show.

Madison Washington and the Mutiny on the Brig Creole
This episode is a simply amazing story of love, heroism and mutiny on the high seas, so please kick back relax and enjoy the show. Madison Washington was an American cook who started the most successful slave revolt in US history. On the night of Nov. 7, 1841, Washington led 17 enslaved men in a mutiny. Taking control of the Creole, they commanded that it be sailed to the Bahamas, which was under British control. Despite American protests, the British declared the slaves to be free persons under their law and refused American demands for their return. The British then took Washington and his 18 conspirators into custody under charges of mutiny and piracy. A special session of the Admiralty Court heard the case, but ruled in favour of the men and freed them in April 1842. The remaining 116 slaves had achieved freedom immediately in the preceding fall. As 128 slaves gained freedom resulting from this revolt, it is considered the most successful in United States history.

Alexandra Pushkin - Black father of Russian literature
In this episode of the Black history Buff podcast, we look at the life of Alexandra Pushkin. I also look briefly into the Russian "Caucasian War" at the end of the show. Born in 18th century Russia, Alexandar Pushkin was Russian nobility and would eventually become immortalised as the “Father of Russian literature.” Pushkin was born in Moscow, on the 26th May 1799. His great-grandfather was Abram Petrovich Gannibal. Gannibal (sometimes written Hannibal), was very young when he was kidnapped from Africa and sent to Constantinople as a captive. From there, he was brought to the Court of Peter the Great in St. Petersburg. The Csar became very fond of the young boy. He made him his godson, giving him his name, Petrovitch, meaning son of Peter, and sent him to study in France. Gannibal’s rank and accomplishments eventually permitting him noble status. This status permitted Pushkin, aged 12 to enter the freshly created Imperial Lycee ( A school for the elite) at St. Petersburg. Described at the time by his teachers as “Lazy… Inattentive in class…Immodest” and as making "mediocre progress,” Pushkin stunned those very same teachers three years later when aged only 15 he published his first Poem to national acclaim. The fantastic thing about this poem was that it was written in Russian and not French which was the language of the Elite at that time.
