Thank you Mr. Moos and Mr. Taylor for organizing this instance of Trouble. Good Trouble. (late Honorable US Rep. John Lewis). Reference the picture of marcher Talbet legally holding a sign in the pedestrian safety zone in the middle of ECR.

Keep it in the press, and on the minds of the community - remnants of The Problem remain today after; 1 year (Floyd), 100 years (Tulsa), 156 years (US 13th Amendment & Juneteenth), 158 years (Emancipation Proclamation), 217 years (1808 end of US Constitutional protection of slave importation / Article I Section 9), 232 years (1789 US Constitution's "three-fifth person" / Article I Section 2), 402 years (1619 first British colony slaves), 456 years (1565 first permanent Spanish colony slaves, St. Augustine, Florida)

- dates from Wikipedia article "Slavery in the United States"
