NC Senate Signs Bill Apologizing For Slavery

Today's move follows the lead of Virginia, which passed a similar measure earlier this year. The resolution, filed by Senator Tony Rand, acknowledges the legislature's profound contrition for "the official acts that sanctioned and perpetuated the denial of basic human rights and dignity to fellow humans." A similar resolution is pending in the state house.
