The real celebration of freedom in the U.S. is June 19. Today, a look at Congressional efforts to end the “Punishment Loophole” in the 13th amendment of the U.S. constitution, the search for ancestors and the “Slave Narratives” of those who experienced emancipation, anti-abortion laws regarding the violation of a woman’s privacy rights and against involuntary servitude. Also, a discussion of books edifying our understanding of the lives of the enslaved.
