Harry Reid Cites "Lincoln" And "Django Unchained" At Rosa Parks Ceremony

The Senate majority leader said, “It’s significant that 150 years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, we are still considering in film, in photo, in art, and activism how to eradicate slavery’s unsavory successors.” Reid was speaking at a ceremony unveiling Rosa Parks’ statue in the Capitol. Parks is the first black woman to be honored with a statue there.
