Voices From Our Dark Past, George T. White, The Last of the Capitol Men

This week the remnants of Jim Crow was uncovered when the bodies of 95 black men literally cast aside were unearthed in Texas. Today, on The Black Blogger" I revisit "Voices From Our Dark Past" the last speech in a lily-white Congress of Representative George T. White, Second Congressional District North Carolina in 1901. This speech signaled the end for a period of 3 decades any black representative in Congress due to the ugliness of Jim Crow. George T. White, the last of the Capitol Men.
