Many Thanks to The Washington Post for having compiled

the first database of slaveholding members of Congress

by examining thousands of pages of census

records and historical documents.

Did you know that . . .

"More than 1,800 congressmen once
enslaved Black people.  This is who they were, and how they shaped the nation."

Remembering . . .

Madeleine Jana Korbel Albright

May 15, 1937 – March 23, 2022

A True Champion of Humanity!

Madeleine Albright 1ab.jfif

In Office:  January 23, 1997 – January 20, 2001

U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE SEAL 2ab.png

In Office:  January 27, 1993 – January 21, 1997

UNITED NATIONS LOGO.jpg

I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Madeleine Albright. 

From the halls of the United Nations to her leadership of the State Department

and advocacy across the globe, Madeleine Albright was a trailblazer,

a role model, and a champion of multilateral

action and international cooperation.  

Escaping Czechoslovakia as a child on the eve of the Second World War,

she rose to become one of the most influential US foreign

policy leaders of her time.  

Her life is a powerful testament to the invaluable contributions

refugees bring to countries that welcome them.

Madeleine Albright was also a dear friend. I had the privilege of 

working with her over the years – both in and out of government –

including  on an initiative focused on  building  global

alliances for the 21st century. I was always struck 

by her wise counsel, deep experience, unique

insights, abiding humanity, warmth and wit.  

My heartfelt condolences to Dr. Albright’s family,

friends, colleagues, and

everyone touched by her extraordinary life.  

António Guterres - 9th UN Secretary-General
