Our calendar year is full of important dates. Like yesterday, when we all enjoyed a national holiday. What were we celebrating, children?
And where was it said “all men are created equal”?
In the Declaration of Independence, 1781, Miss.
Correct. But not, sadly, for everyone on that memorable day. Who had to wait
another 84 years ‘til their freedom was secured?
My ancestors, Miss. Slaves from Africa.
Yes, can you imagine what it felt like, in 1787, just six years after independence, to be told that not only was slavery still legal, but that as ‘Negroes’ we were actually only considered 3/5ths human being!
