"Is known about Stephanie Saint Clair's life before her criminal career. This is partly due to a race and partly due to the time and place of her birth earth as a black woman born in the eighteen hundreds formal records of history were few and far between a facts that would play to her advantage edge later in life however there are some things we know for sure Stephanie. Saint Clair was born on December twenty fourth eighteen ninety seven in the French West indies on what is known today as the Caribbean archipelago of Guadeloupe. She was the third child of four and the oldest daughter of Ama- decent Claire and Onslow Mar tro Stephanie was born over fifty years after the abolition of slavery in the West indies and so her parents lived as free people but the Saint Clair shores weren't just free they were part of an elite social and economic class on Guadalupe because records show that Stephanie's parents were married. We can assume that they held a higher status among other black islanders according to her book the world of Stephanie Saint Clair An entrepreneur race woman and outlaw in early Twentieth Century Haarlem Author Shirley Steuer rights that a government acknowledged marriage was one of the limited privileges granted to these upper class black citizens at the time and the basis of this status was almost entirely highly determined by a combination of a person's ancestry and their resources those whose relatives were more recent slaves were considered lower class. They'd had limited access to money and education however those individuals with longer histories of free ancestors were able to inherit and accumulate wealth and in some cases even land. Stewart goes on to explain that these elite black islanders commonly worked in a skilled trade it directly under or beside the small population of wealthy whites on Guadeloupe Stephanie's father for instance was most likely an artisan and well respected in the community education was another privilege that the Saint Clair's enjoyed unlike many black girls at the time Stephanie was put in school and taught to read and write in both French and English. It was important to her parents that their children take advantage of their education and continue to elevate their families station. The Saint Clair's were very proud of their distinguished place in the community which is why it hurt deeply when that status was put at risk around nineteen o eight when Stephanie was just eleven years old her father on d. passed away this was a huge blow to the Saint Clair family. It was his work that it afforded his family their relative wealth and education they had and without him. Stephanie's mother onslow was left with no source of income and four young mouths to feed onslaught struggled to keep up appearances in the community but money quickly dwindled and she compensated by dipping into her daughter's dowries. Eventually she was forced to take Stephanie Out of school with no education and limited marriage prospects Stephanie's future began to dim onslaught knew that keeping her daughter on Guadeloupe loop would sentence Stephanie to a life of hardship and no mobility so she looked elsewhere sending Stephanie to France would have been the obvious choice voiced onslaught given that French was the national language of Guadeloupe however France was suffering a cholera epidemic at the time and Shipping Stephanie. Hey there would have meant delivering her daughter to her death. Instead arrangements were made for Stephanie to travel to french-speaking Montreal on a Transatlantic Trans Atlantic ship by way of New York City. The voyage would be a long twenty days in the steerage section of a luxury steamship and thirteen year old Stephanie money would go alone the nest going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode please note. Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist I but she has done a lot of research for the show. Thank Sammy leaving your family and home country alone and at such a young age no doubt has psychological consequences but in some cases it can help young emigrants develop what researchers Matias Gay Bouza Lem and Baltimore mid dog call self efficacy self efficacy is an individual's perceived belief in their ability to control their circumstances and their own potential for success assess gay Wulan maytag right that self efficacy is mainly influenced by the ratio between an individual's access to resources and their exposure exposure to constraints for example a constraint may be the loss of a social support system while a resource like the promise of employment would mitigate that constraint straight which was exactly the case for Stephanie Saint Clair before her voyage to Montreal. Stephanie's mother used an employment agency agency to find her work well the Canadians. We're looking for young french-speaking black women to serve as maids or nannies in their mostly white households girls like Stephanie were in demand so when Stephanie left her home island and her family behind she at least knew she had a job job and housing waiting for her on the other side of the world this would have given the young girl a sense of security and purpose rather than helplessness and thus a greater sense of self efficacy gay. Wu's alum and maddox research shows that individuals with high self efficacy adapt to new environments armaments more easily they trust themselves to meet the demands of their circumstances interpreting them as challenges rather than threats simply put it makes aches a person bold a quality that Stephanie Saint Clair soon had in spades this sense of agency or what others would later describe scribe as her fighting spirit would become one of Stephanie's most defining characteristics once she stepped aboard the S S Jonah Stephanie left a life of relative comfort with her family behind though the SS Jonah was billed as a luxury steamer steamer ship with opulent cabins and High Class Amenities for the wealthy tourists life below deck was very different dozens of black Caribbean women were traveling in steerage they struggled for space and fresh air in the ship's crowded underbelly and if it became too stifling the women's only other option was to sleep on the main deck exposed to the harsh elements of the open ocean on the SS Jonah Stephanie was was no longer the young lady of a respected black family. She was glorified. Chattel for the twenty days that the SS Jonah on a slowly made its way to New York City thirteen year old Stephanie Sinclair learned a hard lesson in class while the rich sipped champagne in the ballrooms above her head. Stephanie fought for scraps of a measly dinner in steerage below. If you wanted something she learned you needed tap fight for it by any means necessary so when thirteen year old Stephanie finally arrived on Ellis Island for processing in a new the country she took destiny into her own hands and molded it to her will she was twenty three now not thirteen and in some ways her new age fit her better than thirteen ever had her experience lying to the immigration official would shape Stephanie's understanding standing of government institutions and laws for the rest of her life. Everything she learned was a game and the day Stephanie came to America America. She decided to play after her release from Ellis. Island Stephanie traveled North to Montreal to work for the Canadian du Bois family there. She spent the rest of her teenage years. Toiling in domestic servitude little is known about Stephanie's. He's time in Montreal but because she left Canada after no more than five years a relatively short period of time for a living domestic worker we can assume that the life of made didn't suit the strong willed girl Stephanie most likely couldn't stand the pointless drudgery and limited freedom ultimately. Admittedly she abandoned her post now for perhaps the first time in her young life. Stephanie's destiny was in her own hands. She was faced with a choice returned to her home. Country her beloved island and back to the arms of her family or stay on her new continent utterly alone alone and live the life of opportunity her mother had hoped for her. Stephanie Unsurprisingly made the bold choice around Nineteen Sixteen Stephanie Sinclair crossed the border back into New York leaving her past life of domestic mystic servitude far behind her. She was only eighteen but her paper stated that she was a full decade older at twenty eight with with her second chance at a fresh start. Stephanie was looking to redefine herself in her new home. The possibility seemed endless in such a bustling metropolis list for a black woman and especially an immigrant in the nineteen hundreds. The opportunities in the land of the free weren't as abundant as promised but there there was a new era dawning in New York City and Stephanie Sinclair had arrived just in time to help usher it in nineteen sixteen was a year at the cusp of two historical evolutions for black people in New York the Great Migration and the Harlem Renaissance the Great Migration was a historical exodus of African Americans from the rural south to northern cities from roughly nineteen sixteen to Nineteen nineteen forty hundreds of thousands of people moved north to escape the repression of Jim Crow laws this influx of black people into New York works city would become one of the key catalysts for the Harlem Renaissance. This was a period of social and cultural change in New York City dating from roughly nineteen nineteen eighteen to nineteen thirty five. It was a time of new intellectualism and artistry that reflected the modern black experience and it all took took place in the northern Manhattan neighborhood of Harlem so when Stephanie Saint Clair reentered New York City. She like thousands of other Black New Yorkers decided to settle in Harlem in a burgeoning black community. Stephanie's race was no longer a barrier to employment and she'd find that her immigrant background was actually a boon because of her elite upbringing in Guadeloupe Stephanie received an education that most black women born in in America never had access to not only could she read and write in both French and English. She had some education in math and soon these skills proved incredibly useful in.

"Studio. So glad to be with you, especially on this show because we're always looking back where we look back at wins. It's that much more special especially on a night when the Texans organization from top to bottom paid homage to the man that founded this organization, Bob McNair, man, what an amazing night, and I don't use the word amazing loosely mazing grace before the game and a tribute to Bob McNair was just unbelievable. My guys Gavin Gert, Kenny. Tom. They all did a great job with the videos in everything on the video board. And it was just such a special special night. It was it was weird in a sense that I could look at the board thinking, I can't believe the big man's gone. I can't believe you know, it was just kind of just still trying to take it all in even though he'd have been able to come to games and be around much this year. It just knowing that he wasn't going to be here anymore was just such a tough a tough thing over the weekend. But everybody in this organization. Tip their cap, in some way, shape or form to Mr. McNair. I mean, it was just unbelievable Monday night and Monday night was just really in all honesty, Monday night was just the decapa and everything. When the when the news came down Friday the way that people in this organization pitched, in some way, shape or form to come up with a plan. How do we how do we feed this, man? How do we give him the proper do? What would he have wanted? I mean, it was just amazing to see people come together. And I'll tell you a little peek behind the curtain on Friday. I got my show all ready to go. I got it all recorded. Everything was ready to go. I got an lasted report and to our show. So putting together a two hour show recording whole thing is is lengthy. I got that showdown. I walked out of the studio, and it was at that moment that I found out that Bob had passed and I knew immediately. I was like, well, we can't run the show we're going we're going live and Martin van Buren. And I came in here for two hours did show. So I've got a show from Friday that will never be aired. And it was all about the titans and getting ready for the titans and all that. And then we did a show that hopefully memorial memorialized him in the proper way at least on radio, but it was throughout the weekend. The articles people wrote the videos people did what community did what PR did? I mean what Amy and Omar and Nathan. An alley. I mean what they all. Did was just incredible. I mean Jonah Stephanie. I mean, they just did such a great job with everything that went on. It was just an incredible incredible evening and on the fortune one because I get to talk about that on the radio because I'm on the radio. You can't see any tears streaming down my face, which is great because I'm sure at some point and all of those discussions, whether it's Friday or Monday or Monday night, whether it was on the air in any way, shape or form, or now just making me think about how everybody came together, which is exactly what Bob McNair wanted. That's exactly what he set out to have here for as an organization was based on family, a work family, faith, flam three. And of course football. And it's the football that we talk about here on the radio, but we wouldn't have done it without Bob McNair. And whether he was the driving force on Monday. I know he was the driving force on Monday, especially when it got to be tend to nothing. He definitely was the driving force for a team looking for eight in a row and in all honesty. I don't think the team looks at that way. The team looks at it has let's be wanted. Oh this week. We'll take care of this sixty minute adventure in front of us and get this thing done, and they certainly did that on Monday night. Against the Tennessee titans. So I noticed to start off your home, you know, stasis might to that replay as on Wednesday. We'll be back on Tuesday for the remainder of the year for as long as the Texans play. And hopefully, I'm doing replay all the way at the February. That would be unbelievable. And I don't I should say unbelievable. It would be fantastic. But the way his team is playing anything. Nothing would shock me at this point nothing, especially the NFL's been this year. You lost three right off the bat. Then you went eight not in NFL history has ever done that ever ever done that in history. I mean, it's just amazing to think about amazing to about this team has done. Now, they can find that consisted stride going forward. They're going to be a tough out from here until February. They're going to be a really really tough out for anybody. But we'll get to that down the road. That's looking ahead. We always look back on replay. And we're going to do that tonight. Looking back at the place of the win over the Tennessee titans. And also back last year's win over the Cleveland Browns. Another statement made as a rookie last year for the Shawn Watson and we'll go through that game. And look back at it later. We got to get through our ultimate eleven plays of the game now, and we're going to start with a guy that I think has unfortunately because the sack numbers aren't higher and the glorified stat numbers aren't higher. I think it's lost. What a good year Whitney mercilus has had came back off the injury last year. And he's been asked to a lot of different things for this organization a ton on and off the field. But all the funeral particular. He's been asked to play as a four three outside linebacker. He's been asked to play as a four three and he's been asked to play three frauds linebacker. He's been asked to play its elaborate. He's been asked to play. All over the field because that's what we can do. We can do all those things. We'll thankfully on Monday night. He was able to get to quarterback gets a team that he has done that against. I remember twenty fifteen list team was two and five and looked like this team was just headed nowhere play the Tennessee titans at home last week before by and whit went nuts. He should had five sacks net game, but they took one away because of a face mask. And I think it'd being fours what he ended up with. It was just outstanding afternoon. We ended up with four on Monday night, but he ended up with one and a half and because of live radio sometimes he got credit for two. So a number eleven we give you both as I put an air quotes both sacks for Whitney mercilus on Monday evening. Here's the first one. I doubt the Texans forty nine. Here's Mario to.
