Alderwoman Revives Debate Over Taney Statue At City Hall « CBS Baltimore
FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A Frederick alderwoman is renewing a call for removing a statue of U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger Brooke Taney from City Hall.
Taney wrote the 1857 #Dred Scott decision upholding slavery. The ruling became a catalyst for the Civil War. It called black people “beings of an inferior order.”
