Let Freedom Ring Through Many Voices

The Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission is inviting people from all over Arkansas to record recitations of the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to be placed on its “Let Freedom Ring” YouTube Channel.

There are two ways to submit 13th Amendment videos to the ACWSC. First, you can upload your video to your own YouTube channel, and send us a link to the video via e-mail. Second, short videos can be e-mailed directly to us and we will upload them to our own YouTube channel. Submissions should be sent to acwsc@arkansasheritage.org.

The 13th Amendment:

Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
