Newspaper Article from the National Anti-Slavery Society c.1854 [Letter of Authentication attached]
"The newspaper’s founder, The American Anti-Slavery Society, was founded in 1833 to spread their movement across the nation with printed materials. The National Anti-Slavery Standard and The Liberator became the official newspapers of the society. The paper featured writings from influential abollitionists fighting for suffrage, equality, and most of all emancipation. Two activists that were featured most were Charles Lenox Redmond, a free elite African American minister who travelled the country speaking out against slavery, and Frederick Douglass who gave powerful antislavery testimonies."

"When you put together things that other people have thrown out,
you’re really bringing them to life – a spiritual life that surpasses the life
for which they were originally created."
In 1963, WOOK TV Channel 14 in Washington, DC premiered a teen television dance show created for African American teenagers in the Washington metropolitan area. The show, “The Teenarama Dance Party” was the visual spin-off of a radio program broadcast on WOOK Radio in DC. WOOK Radio was black radio at its best in Washington, DC and when WOOK owner Richard Eaton received a license to operate a television station, the popularity of the Teenarama Dance Party radio program made the smooth transition from radio to television.
Teens danced the latest dance craze to the hit sounds. Guest performers ranging from Rhythm & Blues, Rock and Roll to popular actors visited the set of Teenarama when passing through town. Most singers were ushered over to Teenarama from The Howard Theater where they were performing that particular week. The teens had the opportunity to see their idols perform including James Brown, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Major Lance, Mary Wells, Aretha Franklin, Lou Rawls, Billy Stewart, Martha & The Vandellas, The Supremes, The Four Seasons and many many others.
The program was produced and broadcast live six days a week from the studio of WOOK-TV in Northeast Washington, DC. The show ran from March 7, 1963 to November 20, 1970.
