The Black Plight +

Post Publication Update.

This is just a very quick post as there have now been two significant developments worthy of mention since the original article was published in my very first post – one good and the other not so much.

The first was the news that a US 20 dollar bill with a new face was announced a short while ago, as addressed in the Public Enemy point; while the other concerns the original case that brought about the making of the film ‘Mississippi Burning’, as addressed in the Billie Holiday point.

I do so now as several readers have asked for more information on this subject in their own comments on my post and rather than try and interpret these myself, I will simply provide the links for the current-related news articles and allow you to digest these amendments yourselves!

WASHINGTON — Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew on Wednesday announced the most sweeping and historically symbolic makeover of American currency in a century, proposing to replace the slaveholding Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill with Harriet Tubman, the former slave and abolitionist, and to add women and civil rights leaders to the $5 and $10 notes.

View Update #2 >> here.

A former Klansman is serving what amounts to a life sentence, but one of the most infamous murder cases of the civil rights era has long been overshadowed by a sense of justice denied.

Though three federal investigations spanned decades, prosecutors never obtained a murder conviction. This week, federal and state officials reluctantly conceded that the investigation into the killings of Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner and James Chaney is closed — and still unresolved.
