Computer Craziness & Marble Maniacs

Someone once said, "Nothing messes up your Friday like realizing it's only Tuesday." Let's rehabilitate Tuesday (and save Friday) with good vibes from the past.

Then and now

Who am I?

Following the US Civil War, I received the opportunity of a lifetime. On this day in 1871, I was sworn in as the first African American congressman as a Mississippi senator.
