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.
