H.R. 3432, which establishes a commission to commemorate the bicentennial of the abolition of the U.S. slave trade, passed the House of Representatives yesterday afternoon.
The bill has already been received in the Senate, where it will be referred to the judiciary committee.
This is good news for those of us who believe that the nation should be paying more attention to this milestone in our history.
