#BlackHistoryMonth-Mississippi legislature is honoring Vernon Dahmer at the State Capitol in #JacksonMS next Monday. Sen. John Horhn said, “He was a champion of equal protection under the law. He was a champion of voting rights. He was a champion of all people having economic freedom.”
One day, an Indian woman known as “Polly,” along with her mother, arrived at the farm. Thomas eventually took Polly as his second wife. By the time all was said and done, Thomas had 11 children with his first wife and 11 with his second wife.
