House vote makes apology for slavery official

With a unanimous vote of the state House on Wednesday, North Carolina became the third state this year to apologize for slavery and legal discrimination. "Our policymakers of that time made human bondage legal. But we are the policymakers today, and we have the moral obligation to do what's right for the state of North Carolina," said Earline Parmon, a Winston-Salem Democrat and one of the resolution's co-sponsors.

Thom Tillis, a Huntersville Republican, said: "There are other areas of this world today where people are still enslaved. I like to think that I'm going to be part of a body that's going to stand up and recognize those are wrong, too."

The other states that apologized for slavery this year are Virginia and Maryland.

Although the Senate may still vote on a House version of the resolution, the House's approval of the Senate resolution Wednesday makes the apology official for the whole state.

* Although the state did not have an extensive plantation system, slavery had become quite common by the time of the American Revolution. At the founding of the United States, three out of 10 North Carolina families owned slaves.

* The slaves, both men and women, cultivated tobacco, cotton and other crops, and built essential public facilities such as churches, courthouses and college campus buildings.

* In 1900, North Carolina enacted an amendment that denied blacks the right to vote and required public schools to be segregated.

* In 1712, there were 800 slaves in North Carolina; by the time of the Civil War, they numbered 330,000.

N.Y.'s Apology for Slavery'

Staff Reporter of the Sun

ALBANY — Lawmakers are poised to approve legislation that would make New York the first northern Union state to issue a formal apology for its role in the slave trade.

Following on the heels of other states that have recently apologized or expressed regret over slavery, the Legislature is expected to pass its own apology bill before it breaks for the summer next week — in time to commemorate the June 19, or "Juneteenth," anniversary marking the day in 1865 when federal troops liberated the last slaves in Texas.

An Apology For Slavery Is Proposed; Moyer Demurs
By Raymond McCaffrey
March 15, 2007

An Annapolis alderman has introduced a resolution calling on the city to formally apologize for its role in slavery.

In a letter to his colleagues, Sam Shropshire (D-Ward 7) said the resolution was not intended to "dig up sins of the past" or to "open old wounds," but to prompt discussion about the city's involvement in the slave trade and lead to "a Week of Atonement and continued racial reconciliation."

Missouri May "Apologize" For Slavery
Michael Williams

JEFFERSON CITY | Missouri would be one of the first states to apologize for a history of slavery under a resolution introduced by a St. Louis lawmaker.

The resolution details more than 140 years of slavery and says “an apology for centuries of brutal dehumanization and injustices cannot ease the past, but confession of the wrongs can speed racial healing and reconciliation.”
