DC was the 1st territory in the United States to free the enslaved.

It’s where Black Americans fled the tyranny of slavery & towards greater freedom, to DC. Yet today it’s where 2nd class citizenship reigns, and the right to vote is denied.

It’s time to recognize DC statehood. https://twitter.com/fenitn/status/1174729875799887874 …

.@AOC ties D.C. statehood to the legacy of slavery: "The people who fled here to the District of Columbia to flee slavery because of the enlightenment of this community are now disenfranchised because of that very act"
