Kennedy and congressional leaders, concluding: “It is now one hundred years seeing that this kingdom, lagging in the back of different civilized countries, abolished slavery.

Otto Kerner of Illinois — issued its document at the reasons of and destiny treatments for the race-associated disturbances that had swept the kingdom all through the preceding year.
