Project Uplift Literacy, Today's Quick History Lesson, 1877
In 1877, the rights of people of color in this nation were effectively sold down the river of the shame for another 100 years. Although a civil rights bill was passed in 1957. It was so watered down that even the segregationists didn't care if it passed or failed. We are still suffering in our communities as a result of this sellout by the so-called abolitionist's republicans. They basically allowed the reinstitution of a system that was, even more, savage than slavery. The Jim and Jane Crow rules that suppressed black equality in each and every southern state in this nation. Come with me today on my history lesson about the year 1877.
