Chattel slavery throughout the State of California remains an open secret. The California State Constitution, California State Legislature, California Supreme Court and Constitutional Officers all weighed in on the "Peculiar Institution," yet today the 150th Anniversary Year of the Emancipation cognition of salient historical events and official primary source documents remain cloaked in systemic institutional racism. The 1865 Project mission is to quantify and qualify the salient contributions of people of African ancestry in our journey towards freedom.
