Laws That Helped African Americans

U. S. Supreme Court

“Laws That Helped African Americans” is a show that will discuss laws passed in the United States that had a positive impact on African Americans.  Laws to end slavery, unequal education, lynching, segregation, and others will be discussed in further detail.  We will also take a look at how these unjust laws had an affect on African Americans, why they existed in the first place, and why these laws had to be abolished.  We will look at how abolishing these unjust laws continue to help African Ameicans today.  Tune in live on June 25, 2011  to listen at www.blogtalkradio.com/aswifttradio or click on ASWIFTT RADIO at www.aswifttwritersguild.com.  For more information contact ASWIFTT RADIO host Brenda Johnson Padgitt at 1-866-302-0508 ext 3030.
