50Th Anniversary Of The Voting Rights Act Of 1965 August 5, 2015
Barbara Mikulski, D-MD
"I am proud to commemorate this anniversary as the Senator for Maryland. Marylanders have a rich history of battling discrimination, going back to the darkest days of slavery. The brilliant Frederick Douglass was the voice of the voiceless in the struggle against slavery. The courageous Harriet Tubman delivered 300 slaves to freedom on her Underground Railroad. And the great Thurgood Marshall went from arguing Brown v. Board of Education to serving as a Supreme Court Justice. All were Marylanders."
