A bipartisan, bicameral resolution passed by the U.S. Senate today provides an apology for the enslavement and racial segregation of African-Americans. The measure comes as the nation celebrates Juneteenth, the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the end of slavery. It was sponsored by Senators Tom Harkin (D-IA) and Sam Brownback (R-KS) and in the U.S. House by Congressmen Cohen.
