People think they know everything about slavery in the United States, but they don’t. They think the majority of African slaves came to the American colonies, but they didn’t. They talk about 400 years of slavery, but it wasn’t. They claim all Southerners owned slaves, but they didn’t. Some argue it was all a long time ago, but it wasn’t.
ALABAMA, August 19, 2016 - The Equal Justice Initiative will be opening a national museum in Montgomery, Alabama that will include the first memorial to victims of racist lynchings in the U.S. and will also document the history of African Americans from slavery to modern-day mass incarceration, the group said Tuesday.
