History: Blacks get the vote in DC

Jan. 8, 1867: Legislation giving the suffrage to blacks in the District of Columbia was passed over President Andrew Johnson’s veto. (Source: www.BlackFacts.com)

Living in DC that’s a great fact to know…but all DC residents still suffer from Taxation without Representation!  We even have that printed on that on our license plates.  We are some militant Negros!!! LOL
