On April 16, 1962, Abraham Lincoln signed the DC Compensated Emancipation Act, ending slavery in Washington, DC. This Act freed approximately 3,100 enslaved people and allowed former slaveholders to petition the Government for compensation.  Visit Boeing Learning Center in April to commemorate the anniversary of this Act and learn more through a hands-on activity.
