Mayor Rochelle Robinson Visits Arbor Station Elementary For Black History Month Celebration

Post Date:02/11/2019

210 years later on February 12, 2019, in Douglasville, Georgia, Mayor Rochelle Robinson was discussing one of President Lincoln's most important accomplishments with 2nd graders at Arbor Station Elementary School to celebrate Black History Month. President Abraham Lincoln issued Executive Order 95, better known as the Emancipation Proclamation for the 2nd time on January 1, 1863, announcing, "that all persons held as slaves. . . henceforward shall be free." Mayor Robinson pointed out to the students that the order freed all slaves held by the Confederate States that were not in control of Union forces. She also told them how the Emancipation Proclamation, followed by the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, would eventually free four million enslaved Americans. Mayor Robinson thanks all the 2nd graders at Arbor Station Elementary for inviting her to celebrate Black History Month with them.
