Liberation from slavery reached slaves on Texas plantations 155 years ago today.
It took another century! Another 100 years would pass before the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965, which directed the attny general to enforce the right to vote for a African Americans.
In 2020 we are still fighting to free Black Americans from systemic persecution by our own American police officers.

I will fight not only for equality but also against racism. I will always rail against the repression of the many by the few. I will be a part of Tear down white supremacy.
