Black History Month selected quotes and notes from Count Time Podcast with LD Azobra Interview with Delores Stewart Shealy

LD and Delores Shealy

Good evening. Good evening. Good evening it’s 4:00 PM. Stand up it’s count time, time for every man and woman to stand up and be counted. Welcome to another edition of Count Time podcast. I am brother LD Azobra formerly named Lyman white. Thank you for joining us today

Good evening. Today is a very special day for Count Time, for Smart Brotha Media, and we have arrived at a place that didn’t even see it coming. When we started this journey last year, I was just hoping to make it to five podcasts. But today is our 50th podcast and that is a wonderful accomplishment for me, for Smart Brother Media, for Countertop. And we trust and hope that we can make it to 50 more.

50 episodes

But most of all I would like to thank our wonderful audience out there who have been very supportive, very encouraging, many calls, many texts, many emails from others saying, LD, I thought last week was the best podcast you ever did. But this week was even better. They say, ask me, how do you continue to bring on these wonderful stories, these wonderful shows? And it’s easy because as we know, our story has not been told.

So we are seeking those who are interested in sharing their story, their life, their history with Count Time. And Count Time is looking forward to another 50 more podcast and hopefully beyond that. And it wasn’t as hard as I thought it was going to be either. Because when it’s something you enjoy doing, something you enjoy being a part of, you’re going to give it your all. And that’s the way it was when I played sports. That’s the way it is in my life. Every day you want to give it to all.

This is a special month we all know is what we call Black History Month. So it is history for Count Time for us to be at the milestone of 50 podcast. And some of you are saying, well, that ain’t that many to me It’s a whole lot. Now. I never thought I would get to 50.


And after you listen to the podcast and you give us some of your feedback, let us know what you think about Count Time podcast, how it impacts you. You give us some comments on what you think, what you like to hear in the future, what can make come time even better. So please go and share and encourage us by making some comments.

And trust me, today’s podcast gives you a story about what happened over 50 years ago in the great state of Mississippi. But you got to hear this story from Ms. Delores Shealy, who’s going to be starting the show out today. And we got Ms. Shealy’s sister, Ms. Ruthie Millsapp.

And once again, I’d like to thank my wonderful listening audience. So thank you for joining us and thank you for being part of the Count Time community.


Living Legend Delores Yvonne Stewart Shealy and her sister Ruthie Lee Millsap give a riveting description of life for Blacks in the fifties and sixties in Mississippi.

The Biloxi Wade-Ins were three protests that were conducted by African-Americans on the beaches of Biloxi, Mississippi between 1959 and 1963. The police stood by on April 24, 1960, as white mobs attacked Black beachgoers/protesters including elderly men, women and children. Whites attacked Blacks throughout the city into the evening. Ten times as many Blacks were arrested as whites during the day.
