Back Story: Harmon Carey, head of Delaware’s Afro-American Historical Society, made two requests to the governor’s office for a formal apology for slavery.
He was ignored.
Carey made a third request right after the 2015 South Carolina church shooting (A White man killed Blacks at a prayer meeting which led to a demand to remove the confederate flag from state grounds.) Carey said, “I thought one way for us to respond—‘us’ meaning Delawareans—was for our governor to issue an official apology for slavery.”
This time the governor’s office replied they were “open to having discussions about the request.”
