Add comment on:National Emancipation Day ~ An Act of Justice
John Hope Franklin ~ reprint
The proposed National Emancipation Day, H.Res 803, (Lee) marks a major milestone in U.S. History. The fact that the Proclamation did not emancipate many slaves and surely did not do what the Thirteenth Amendment did in winding things up, it is the Proclamation and not the Thirteenth Amendment that has been remembered and celebrated over the past 150 years. Black Agriculture will connect the history and present modern day examples of the ongoing quest toward freedom.
