As one who has taken up the mantle of the Unfinished work of the Freedman’s Bank, and the Freedman’s Bureau Act of 1865, I and we respect and understand the value of the 1866 act. As do countless others.
The video below is simply an informational briefing of the non-emotional, impartial facts. Let’s remain educated, vigilant and engaged.
Correction: The video should have noted that we ‘should’ have been okay (meaning, this case should not have been the litmus test for civil rights). But if Mr. Allen loses, it may make it harder for all to file after this ruling.
