On Friday, May 28, 2010, Glenn Beck, with his two guests, David Barton and Lucas Morel, did a great show on America’s Black Founders. So often, and rightfully so, we talk about great founders such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, but many of us were really surprised, and quite honestly, angry, that much of this great history was not shared in our textbooks, and taught in our public schools. As a consequence, too many distortions, in mainstream American history, have been perpetuated over the years.
I hope that we will see more shows like this, so that African American citizens will be rightfully appreciated for their great contributions to our country; and so our history, which has been distorted, can be corrected.
The good news is, back then, there were many black citizens, who certainly contributed to our great country, in more ways then most of us realize. I am very thankful to Glenn for bringing this (below) history to the forefront of American culture.
Here is the second part of Glenn’s special on The Black Founders, from June 25th:
