Douglas Wins Battle For African-Americans

Published on August 07, 2008 with No Comments

Kirk DouglasHollywood veteran Kirk Douglas is winning his battle to get African-Americans an official political apology for the institution of slavery.

The Spartacus star has been campaigning for a formal apology for years, urging Congress and presidential candidates to support his fight.

And his efforts appear to have paid off – America’s House of Representatives has passed a formal national apology to descendants of those who were brought to the country as slaves from Africa.

Douglas told the Los Angeles Times: “This is the best news I’ve heard in a long time. We will show the world that the strongest nation is capable of humanity.”
