We're all reminded of the emancipation proclamation that was issued in eighteen sixty three. We know that they were areas other south that did not get the word that the slaves would be free for two years earlier this week. I celebrate the commemoration of the birthday of the audible Mickey Leland who died some years ago alongside of an Ethiopian mountain attempting to feed those struggling, but he believed in nationals.
