Black Americans are creating free accounts to research their ancestoral history through the 1870 United States Census and www.Ancestry.com. Black Americans are spending Black History Month completing a long term to demand policies that benefit them.
Available online free of charge, the 1870 Census is important because it was the first census to provide detailed information on Black Americans after the Civil War. It indexes lists of names and images of populations who inhabited the United States in 1870.
After years of peaceful protests, petitions, and loop-holed policies, Black Americans watched the Biden administration sign 75 executive orders, 45 presidential memoranda, 185 proclamations, and 26 notices but has not signed a single legislation to benefit Black Americans.
