In this recording, Gloria J. Tate reads from Jeremiah 34:8-17 followed by prayer. She delivers a sermon titled “What Plantation are You On?” relating this message back to the Bible scripture. She talks about slavery of Black slavery and the slavery of the mind. This slavery could be jealousy, greed, laziness, and pride. She implores the audience to fight against these weaknesses like slavery was fought against, and delivers the message that it is up to the person to free themselves from these sins.
