Left in place, those laws would have applied to all black residents of the capital, since all were now free. But most Republicans in Congress had no intention of allowing racially discriminatory legal structures to persist. Since the black codes were local statutes passed by the Washington city council, congressional Republicans ﬁrst attempted to persuade the city council itself to overturn the laws. When the council refused, Congress went over its head. Wilson placed a clause in the ﬁrst school bill that repealed all racially discriminatory 26 e v e ry w here i s freedom and everyb o dy f r e e laws within the District.
Later laws established curfews for African Americans, banned them from certain lines of work, and forbade them from holding meetings without a permit from city ofﬁcials. ”13 Some of the black codes were enforced sporadically, but the threat of enforcement always loomed, particularly in times of heightened racial tension. After an 1848 attempt by dozens of slaves to escape on the schooner Pearl, for example, Georgetown and Washington ofﬁcials petitioned Congress for broadened police powers to prevent slave escapes and to tighten controls over free blacks.
Border state senators insisted that District of Columbia residents (white ones) be allowed to weigh in on the matter, and they argued that the proposed legislation forecast congressional Republicans’ broader emancipation agenda. ”28 Proponents prevailed, however, and on April 16, 1862, Lincoln signed the District of Columbia Emancipation Act into law. In its ﬁnal version, the law had two especially notable features. First, it appropriated $100,000 for the voluntary colonization of African Americans living in the capital, a nod to those, including Lincoln, who doubted that black and white people could peacefully coexist in the United States once slavery was over.
