From the Paper:

"Since the days of slavery, African Americans have had to battle for rights that many people in the United States have been able to take for granted. The issue of slavery was put to rest many years ago, but the damage that the practice did to race relations is still a bruise on the hip of society as America works to provide true equality to those who reside in the states. If one were to trace the path of African American roots in the United States from the days of slavery until the 1960's, one would see a path filled with turmoil, angst, and hard earned victory in the area of civil rights for African Americans nationwide."
