Steve’s Smooth Pickup in College || STEVE HARVEY

– Alright, everybody, welcome back. You know, these days more people than ever are tracing their family tree to find out about their lives. And the lives of their
ancestors, so that they can gain a better understanding
of who they really are. Well thanks to my friends at MyHeritage. The story of my next guest ancestor has been brought to life, take a look. While the history books are full of heroic stories, many stories
of unsung heroes go untold. James Reece Europe is one such hero. Quoted by some as the founding father of Ragtime and Jazz the only
thing more staggering than his legacy is the fact that he is not a household name. Born in eighteen eighty in Mobile Alabama. He learned classical violin
and piano as a child. At twenty two, he moved
to new york to pursue a career in classical music. While there he founded
the Clef Club Orchestra. The first all African American Orchestra and trade union in the country. James single handedly led the orchestra all the way to Carnegie
Hall in nineteen twelve where he made history again as the first black man to
perform at the iconic venue. In nineteen seventeen at
the height of his career he was called to fight in world war one. When not on enemy lines
he as busy introducing a whole new continent to Rag time and Jazz with his band The Harlem Hellfighters. His contribution to black culture makes his untimely death
even more shocking. In nineteen nineteen
he was stabbed to death by a member of his band. He was just thirty nine years old. James Reece Europe’s
efforts to elevate the black cause through music
have earned him a place in the history books
with many referred to him as the Martin Luther King of music. (applause) Well everybody please
welcome, the great grandson of James Reece Europe, Robert F. Europe. (applause) – How you doing man? – Thanks for having me on. – So Robert before
MyHeritage how much did you know about your great grandfathers legacy? – My father James who unfortunately couldn’t be here today,
he always encouraged us to learn as much as we
could about the man. But to kind of gauge the sheer impact that my great grandfather had on culture its kind of hard to comprehend. I mean I know mostly
about his big exploits as far as bringing jazz to France but. You know the finer details of his life my knowledge gets a little
sketchy so I’m excited – Yeah so joining us now is geneticist and family tree
expert Nathan Pearson. (Applause) Alright Nathan, welcome back to the show I know that you’ve partnered
up with MyHeritage on this. How can you help people like Robert connect with their family history? – So families we have kind of two ways of looking back into the
family past, and seeing those details that you’re
craving to see Robert. And those are the DNA
that’s within us and also the lore and the records
that go, that we share outside that, that we share in families and then the paper trail. And so the cool thing with
MyHeritage is they look at both. And so you get this kind of stereo view where your looking
through those binoculars and you can bring the
past into focus and depth better that way and for
your great grandfather when you look back at the records of him and his family, before he was the warrior, before he was the band leader. He was the baby of the
family, the youngest of Lorraine and Henry Europe
and they were living in Mobile, Alabama in nineteen eighty and at that time Henry
was working as a gauger. A gauger is a customs official
at the port in Mobile. But ten years earlier, in the first census after emancipation, he had been
working as a school teacher. And you can see as you
follow the family forward in the paper trail, first they go to D.C and then later when
James moves to New York he of course, in his
fathers footsteps becomes a mentor to so many young
musicians in New York. And there is amazing
paper trail there of him going to Puerto Rico and recruiting. He was trying to find the best
musicians to join his band. There’s a record him
coming back with folks on that ship with new band mates and pioneering that forward. And that of course brings
us to music is his legacy. And to your own legacy,
the living legacy, there. So in your own work,
you inherited along with other people, in your
family tree and other kin. You inherited some of
that beautiful pioneering work that he did artistically
and also of course the DNA that came with it. (Applause) – What attributes from
your great grandfather do-would you think live on in you? – Well obviously, the most
obvious thing would be music um, I myself I’m a career musician. I’m a singer guitar player
for The Fostirit band. Its a little rock band, back in New York. I mean I got cousins that
are just amazing singers vocalist, songwriters and my father James Reece Europe the
third, and my brother Lieutenant James Reece Europe the fourth although they did not
take a career in music there, there both
very,very adept at music. (Applause) – How do you plan on keeping
your great grandfathers memory alive for future
generations in your family? – Well I definitely want
my kids to know about James Reece Europe but
uh I would like everyone to know about James Reece Europe. That’s why my family and
I, we’ve actually been involved in this thing called The Three sixty ninth Experience. They actually recreated the Three Sixty Ninth Harlem Hellfighters. And all the musicians
are made of, musicians from local uh HBCU’s. And they tour around the country, I mean their an incredible band and
they tour around the country and play my great grandfathers music. – Thank you for joining us today man. – On behalf of everybody
thank you Steve and thank you MyHeritage for bringing us on. (Applause) – That’s really cool man
to learn it like that. Thank you Nathan and Robert. Aye! For all of you at

  31. K 0 says:

    This story is a complete fake, let me tell you. Maybe back in the old days women were softer, but im not completely sure that women were too easy to fall for this approach. In today society this is completely akward, cowardly appproach. Let me explain. Women today wants approach with:
    -Eye contact
    -Hand gestures
    -Good posture
    -Body Language
    -Maybe little flirt

    So he obviously sounded like a baby, look, he doesn't look in eyes, body posture too leaned, too anxious with his body, he didnt smile he – no jokes he didnt break the ice, without confident, look st his approach, looks too fake and unnatural, for me this is awkardly approach with no confidence, it looked everything planned before and that's the mistske when you approach a girl, girl can read you in 5seconds and knows when you come with thoughs right away and thoughs planned weeks before and that walk away uhhh very awkward, this is my opinion you can discuss in the comments below but for me this will never ever gonna work today, maybe in the past but its too fakey. Yes i respect his kindness and respect toward women, thats a very good manner for a gentleman but only with respect anf kindess women won't gonna run with you and admire you, one of the greatest manner that can s gentleman have is also humor, without humor you cant break the ice, especially today with this depressed society.
    Maybe the girl was so easy to get, but with my experience im so confused with this approach, i wish i lived in that time or meet a girl like Melinda. Peace and thank you for reading.

    I love when share a part of life with his fans. There's one story he told had me laughing so hard I couldn't catch my breath. I've been trying to find that clip on YouTube for the longest.
    He talks about traveling on some kind of tour bus from a golf trip in Florida. As he said they stopped to refuel somewhere between the borderline of Florida and Georgia. Steve said he looked around and noticed a general store. By this time he had a taste for an organic banana. He entered the store and encountered a grouchy owner who left him waiting. Then, a young black lady recognized him and waited on him. She sold him a lot of lottery tickets. By the time he was ready to leave, the young lady placed a call to her mom and told her Steve was in the store. As Steve was walking out, he was surrounded by kids asking for ice cream and pizza. Shortly, the young lady's mama appeared. The rest is hilarious. Only Steve can tell this story.

    If anyone is familiar with this story, please leave a link.

  55. ritiksfilms says:

    This has given me so much confidence to try this.

  56. PRIYO says:

    Brother's pimpin, yeah

  57. potato head says:

    Unfortunately, guys won’t try this, not in 2019, not in America. They are scared and you can’t blame them. Not scared of the girl but getting prosecuted for sexual harassment if he’s not her type. I would be too. Your reputation is seriously on the line. I can’t imagine how it’s like for you men in America to date nowadays. I have no problem approaching a random girl I like in public where I live here in Europe. But in America, noo. Forget spontaneity and perseverance. Forget flirting and romance. It’s killed. Trust me you don’t want to stay in the world of exchanging insta’s and hookups. It feels nice and convenient in the short term but if you don’t experience meaningful relationships in your 20’s that really sucks. Please feel free to comment and engage in discussion if you like this topic 🙂

  60. Jake Sanders says:

    That's school days game.. nowadays if I see a girl out and about, I can't risk losing her so I gotta do this whole gig in the first interaction coz I don't know if I'll bump into her again.
    Me: It would make my day if you told me your name.
    Her: Sara
    Me: It would make my day if you said my name.. it's Jake.
    Her: Hi Jake
    Me: It would make my day if y..
    Her: Ok you're creeping me out with the "make my day" thing
