From today's New York Times email:

On Feb. 25, 1870, Hiram R. Revels, R-Miss., became the first black member of the United States Senate as he was sworn in to serve out the unexpired term of Jefferson Davis.

I feel that's worth reminding people of.

... oh wow, that couldn't possibly be more awesome. It's sad that there have still only been three elected black senators, though.
