Deardra Shuler talks to Rev. Dennis Dillion about Freedom 2013: Emancipation Proclamation 150th Celebration. The Emancipation Proclamation called for the abolishment of slavery and was by far one of the most defining moments in American history. Signed into order September 22, 1862, by President Abraham Lincoln the document freed African and mixed race slaves. It also provided liberties for them to defend themselves and join the military. History has shown freedom came at a high price. 150 years later, African Americans still contend with racial profiling, unbalanced scales of wealth, escalating foreclosures that cripple communities while ushering in gentrification. A new paradigm is needed to tip the scales towards equality and inclusion.
In honor of the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, the Freedom 2013 Conference will celebrate the historic moment with an all-day symposium, rally and gospel concert featuring Tamela Mann.
The event is spearheaded by Rev. Dennis Dillon, publisher of the New York Christian Times. A visionary and chief researcher behind the ground breaking New York Economic State of Black New York, in partnership with Dr. Johnny Ray Youngblood, national civic leader, chief architect of The Maafa and pastor of Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church, as well as over 100 convening clergy, takes place Wednesday, June 19, at The Riverside Baptist Church, 490 Riverside Drive, in Harlem.
Freedom 2013 will commemorate this historical moment with a time-lined exhibition tracing the journey from Africa through slavery leading up to the emancipation and from the emancipation to present. There will also be an Emancipation Awards Luncheon honoring those unsung heroes, shereos (some posthumously), and institutions that have played a significant role towards the passage of the signing of the emancipation.

In 1861, Congress passed an act stating that all enslaved people employed against the Union were to be considered free. In 1862, Congress passed The Second Confiscation Act. This law stated that property used by the Confederates to further their rebellion could be seized by the U.S. government. African Americans who had been once considered by the Confederates as their property, were therefore now considered by abolitionists as "contraband of war". And as such this war law, The Confiscation Act could be used to legally take the enslaved from Slavers. In an effort to placate the slave-holding Border States, Lincoln resisted the demands of the abolitionists, Black and White, for complete abolition. In addition to the Confiscation Act, President Lincoln signed a bill, passed by Congress, which prohibited the army and navy from returning fugitive slaves to slave holder claimants. Any officer violating the law would be discharged from service, and would be forever ineligible to any appointment in the military or naval service of the United States. This ended the shameful practice by northern generals of returning Africans to slavery for a fugitive slave reward, and it also stimulated the flight
