The Emancipation Proclamation freed slaves in the Confederate States. Although it could not be enforced when it was announced in 1863, it was followed by the 13th Amendment, which had the same intent and affected the entire country.

Slaves were declared free in America, but the road to true freedom was long and hard fought. Ultimately the Civil War had to be won and post-war oppression had to be eradicated. Things like the Jim Crow laws, the KKK, segregation, and poverty still greatly affected the rights of African-Americans. It took roughly 100 years after President Lincoln's famous words for Martin Luther King and others to finally inspire the beginning of real equality in the U.S.
