Some good news for once. . .
- I received an email yesterday from the American-Anti Slavery group that had this picture in it with the text below…
In this picture (which ran in the New York Times on October 22), President Bush is greeting escaped Sudanese slave Francis Bok at the White House signing of the Sudan Peace Act. This may be the first time since the 19th century that an American president has met with a former slave.
I was excited to hear that Bush signed this law against slavery and oppression in Sudan into law, and am inspired to see this picture of a man who was enslaved now free. (For more info on the slavery in Sudan and around the world go to www.IAbolish.com
