About The Abolitionist Roundtable
If there is one aspect of Joshua’s Trail that makes this weekly program a success, it is the Abolitionist Round Table that consists of Dr. Levon R. Yuille, Milt Harris and Ellis Washington. Dr. Yuille’s wife Sally is to be credited with suggesting this unique collaboration that continues to inform and entertain their listeners.
Abolition speaks to the advocacy of the eradication of slavery. There are individuals in America who are enslaved to a life of failure because they have allowed themselves to be deceived by the demagogy of some of our leaders who exploit their own people for personal gain. And then, there are others who manipulate the black experience to their own advantage so they can use the civil rights movement to promote their own agenda.
These men make Joshua’s Trail like no other talk show in America.

Charles McCollough (September 2, 1942 - October 27, 2015)
Charles sat at the Abolitionist Roundtable from 2004 until he was taken home in 2015. Charles’ sincere dedication to God and country drove him to be a valuable member of the Abolitionist Roundtable. Charles was a firebrand who spoke from his heart with great care and concern about what is happening in America. Charles will be missed.
Milt is a life-long resident of Detroit and has been sitting at the Abolitionist Roundtable since 2004. Milt’s calm and analytical ways (often amusing) cause one to think about things deeply. Milt’s “Logically Speaking” segments will make you “think about it”.
Fillippo (Phil) Stargell
Phil officially joined Reverend Levon Yuille's abolitionist roundtable as on air commentator on the fourth of January 2010 alongside co-host LaVonne Yuille-Maxwell and Del Marsh. A retired construction worker, after a career spanning more than 40 years working on such diverse projects as the building of the Renaissance Center to the demolition of the JL Hudson building. His conservative philosophy was developed the hard way working as a laborer in the Michigan trade unions who loyalty almost always was to the Democrat party, where group thinking was the norm and independent thinking is discouraged never the less he developed the entrepreneur spirit to own his own business. I celebrated 25 years of wedded bliss to wife, best friend and business partner Mary in December 2009, parents to six successful and happy adult children & 14 grandchildren. Teamed with my wife Mary we developed Star Cleaning and Maintenance L.L.C; a twenty year successful business until the recent recession made it necessary to take business in a new direction. The new direction allows for a double commitment to tell all who will listen the two things I believe will make for a better America (1) If America is to continue her role as the leader of the free world, The American people must have a change of heart which will bring about an end to how abortion is promoted and practiced in the United States today (2) Conservatism, free markets and the commitment to the rule of Constitutional law are the cornerstone of the foundation that makes America exceptional.

The Spanish philosopher, George Santayana, said, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." This quote is one of the great motivators behind the Abolitionist Round Table, the goal being to remind blacks and Americans in general about much of our forgotten history especially from the Christian perspective.
