Black Heritage and America
Placeholder Image
Recently, as I tarried the ground of the estate of President Thomas Jefferson, the first 18 United States presidents and this coming February 2013 Black History month came to mind. Of our first 18 United States presidents, 12 owned slaves. There is nothing that can right the wrong of slavery -- no amount of financial reparation, no apologies -- nothing can erase the inhuman brutality of slavery.
