Dred Scott decision

Dred Scott v. Sandford, March 6, 1857, was a landmark decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court held that African Americans, whether enslaved or free, could not be American citizens and therefore had no standing to sue in federal court, and that the federal government had no power to regulate slavery in the federal territories acquired after the creation of the United States

Lord, have mercy.
Forgive our nation of racism, Lord. Forgive us individually of our sins of racism.
Cleanse this calendar day by the Blood of the Lamb. We look to Your heart, God. Teach us how to love. May love find its voice in the Mississippi Delta. May love heal this land. A new voice of love, Lord. A new sound of love. Amen.
