I joined over 150 other lawmakers and human rights experts in signing a letter urging the United Nations Human Rights Commission to launch a formal inquiry into the 1988 massacre of at least 30,000 political prisoners in Iran.

Black Africans were rounded up by other Black Africans and Arab Muslims and transported under poor conditions to the United States by Europeans, then sold as slaves.
