It's cheesy and…See More

The first black Senator from the South—born in North Carolina, elected in 1870—is never named. Another black politician—from South Carolina, a personal hero of mine—is never mentioned either. He was the longest-serving black congressmember until Adam Clayton Powell, Jr: Robert Smalls.By Nick Douglas, AFROPUNK Contributor I understand…See More
