Remembering Emancipation Day II

“The Africans who were kidnapped from their villages, marched across Africa, ferried across the sea, unloaded off ships and sold into a life of slavery in America, those Africans are all dead; but they’re descendants are now in good hands, and life is only going to get better from here to eternity.”

—from Africans In America In Good Hands Now, originally published on this blog on President Obama’s inauguration day, 1/20/2009.
