“Members of the National Archives’ task force on racism have recommended removing the ‘charters of freedom’ description for America’s founding documents, such as the Constitution, arguing that it did not initially grant freedom for all individuals. Approximately 800 National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) employees from across the country attended a town hall meeting of the Archives’ Task Force on Racism on May 11, according to FOIA documents obtained by America Rising and shared with Fox News. During the presentation, a museum subgroup recommended that NARA ‘retire’ the term ‘charters of freedom’ as descriptors for the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence.” (09/09/21)
