Dear Orange County Church Goers,

Do you want to be a part of history-making in Orange County? My name is Shandell and I am a PhD candidate at Antioch University, and former Orange County resident. I am in the process of writing my dissertation. My topic is on religious racial socialization, or the way in which pastors talk to their members about racial and social matters.

The purpose of this project is to identify: 1) What type of messages Black Christian Pastors in Orange County California say about race and racial matters, 2) How parishioners interpret the messages, and 3) How members view their pastor’s leadership. This information is intended to help bring to light differences in how religious leaders racially socialize church goers.

As a part of this project I am asking you to participate in this online survey. Please click on the link below. The survey will take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete, depending on the length of your responses.

https://qtrial2010.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eL62jKSgPhZ139P

Participants should be at least 18 years of age and attend church in Orange County. Please email me at [email protected] with any questions. To protect your privacy, please do NOT respond to this post.
The Antioch University Institutional Review Board has approved this survey. If you have any ethical questions or concerns about this research study please contact Dr. Lisa Kreeger, Chair of the Institutional Review Board, Antioch University Graduate School of Leadership and Change at [email protected].

Do any of you still have one or remember these? I thought it was a horse jockey all these years. And.....THIS is why we need Black History Month.

A lot of people don't know the real meaning behind these statues, so they vandalize them, [email protected] about them being racist, etc. When the image of a black 'footman' with a lantern signified the home was a stop on the Underground Railroad. These are largely a northern thing, and weren't commonly found in the South until after WWII when northerners moved there and brought this custom with them. The clothing of the statue was also coded. A striped jockey's shirt meant that this was a place to swap horses, while a footman in a tailed coat meant overnight lodgings/food, and a blue sailor's waistcoat meant the homeowner could take you to a port and get you on a ship to Canada. I always laugh when I hear black folks talk about how racist these are, because honestly, the cats who had them were likely the LEAST racist. Later, these came back into popularity after WWII, and they were again coded to show the white homeowners supported early civil rights efforts, weren't Klan, etc.

And this....people, is why we need Black History month. How many of you knew this? For the record Tom Brady is not the first person to win 5 superbowl rings.

Charles Lewis Haley (born January 6, 1964) is a retired American football linebacker and defensive end who played in the National Football League (NFL) for the San Francisco 49ers (1986–1991, 1998–1999) and the Dallas Cowboys (1992–1996).

A versatile defensive player, Haley began his career as a specialty outside linebacker, eventually progressing to pass-rusher and finally full-fledged defensive end. He was the first five-time Super Bowl champion, and remains one of only two such players (with Tom Brady). Haley was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2011 and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2015.

She didn’t just help herself, she reached back to help others.
My #BlackHistoryMonth hero of the day is #HarrietTubman suffered physical abuse daily, still…. she rose! She escaped to #freedom and freed others along with her. Harriet “Moses” Tubman (1822 – March 10, 1913) was an American #abolitionist, #humanitarian, and an armed scout and spy for the United States #Army during the #AmericanCivilWar. She escaped slavery and led hundreds of enslaved people to freedom along the route of the #UndergroundRailroad. The violence she suffered early in life caused permanent physical injuries. She carried the scars from her lashings in her teen years for the rest of her life. The most severe injury occurred when Tubman was an adolescent. Sent to a dry-goods store for supplies, she encountered a slave who had left the fields without permission. The man’s overseer demanded that Tubman help restrain the runaway. When Harriet refused, the overseer threw a two-pound weight that struck her in the head. Tubman endured seizures, severe headaches and narcoleptic episodes for the rest of her life. Harriet Tubman escaped from slavery in 1849. Working for the Union Army as a cook and nurse, Tubman quickly became an armed scout and spy. The first woman to lead an armed expedition in the war, she guided the Combahee River Raid, which liberated more than 700 slaves in South Carolina. #BlackHistory #Freedom #Nurse #courage #caring #determined

Black Wall Street - NEVER FORGET
As one of the most prominent concentrations of African-American businesses in the United States during the early 20th century, it was popularly known as America's "Black Wall Street" until the Tulsa race riot of 1921, in which white residents massacred hundreds of black and the community was bombed. It was literally the first act of terrorism on American soil.
