The True Status of Descendants of Enslaved Afrikans in America: A Lemon's Legacies Porch Talk
Three of the five men credited with drafting the Declaration of Independence held slaves at the time the Declaration was drafted. As such, it is clear that the words, “All men are created equal,” did not apply to the enslaved population. The 3/5ths clause of the US Constitution, the Dred Scott case, Jim Crow Laws and the continued treatment of Black lives as inferior, including my conviction for delaying or obstructing a peace officer, all support the notion the status of the enslaved descendants has never changed. We will discuss this status and what language in the record of the United States, if any, changed the status.
