The Matter of Black Lives




Former POTUS, George W. Bush


Excerpt From 2008-09 Congressional Apology Resolution

For Slavery and Jim Crowism


12. Whereas on July 8, 2003, during a trip to Goree Island, Senegal, a former slave port, President George W. Bush acknowledged slavery's continuing legacy in American

life and the need to confront that legacy when he stated that slavery `was . . .one of the greatest crimes of history . . .

      …The racial bigotry fed by slavery did not end with slavery or with segregation.

     And many of the issues that still trouble America have roots in the bitter

     experience of other times.  But however long the journey, our destiny is set: liberty

     and justice for all.';

"There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights.  The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges". MLK, Jr. "I Have A Dream" Aug. 28, 1963
