ANNOUNCING: OFFICIAL KICKOFF OF THE DRED SCOTT COMMEMORATIVE STAMP LETTER WRITING CAMPAIGN

In 2015, a letter was sent to request a Dred Scott stamp. On this 160th Anniversary, we are requesting thousands of letters and petitions that are needed to be written in support of a Dred Scott Commemorative Stamp.

The request is in recognition of the 14th Amendment in 2018. It is also called the Dred Scott Amendment. Mary Sternberg is the coordinator who has already worked with a Florida Middle School which submitted almost 1,500 requests. We will be asking for your help and support to submit support letters.

Look for more information soon!

The Missouri History Museum’s recent installation #1 In Civil Rights, The African American Freedom Struggle in St. Louis presents the accounts of this history that has been too often unacknowledged.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Historic Healing & Reconciliation 160th Annversary Of Dred Scott Decision Monday March 6, 2017

MARYLAND STATE HOUSE ANNAPOLIS, MD – 3/2/2017 — NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF COLORED PEOPLE  NAACP Anne Arundel County, Maryland Branch P.O. 6210 Annapolis Maryland 21401   Phone: 443-883-5151  www.annearundelcountynaacp.org

A CALL FOR RACIAL HEALING & RECONCILIATION ON  THE 160TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE DRED SCOTT DECISION Monday, March 6, 2017

THE EVENT

On Monday, March 6, 2017, at 11:30 am, the 160th anniversary of the Dred Scott decision, there will be a historic apology made for The Dred Scott Decision at The Robert Brooke Taney statue in front of the Maryland State House.   The Descendants of both former Chief Justice Roger Brooke Taney and The Dred Scott family are coming together on March 6th for two reasons. First, to reconfirm the reconciliation of the Scotts and Taneys, with accompanying apology and forgiveness. Second, to speak against the removal of the Roger Brooke Taney statue Maryland State Capitol Grounds.  Instead, they see an opportunity for reconciliation via the erection of statues of Dred Scott and Frederick Douglass to stand in a position of dialogue with Roger Brooke Taney, along with an educational display on the Dred Scott decision and its aftermath.  And, they will help raise the funds for the Dred Scott statue. The Scotts and Taneys believe that Americans should learn from their history, not bury their history.
