Ministers Taking a Stand, led by president Bishop E.W. Jackson sent a letter last week to Kim Sajet, director of the National Portrait Gallery, asking for the removal of Sanger’s likeness “from all National Portrait Gallery exhibits.”
The letter stated in part:
Perhaps the Gallery is unaware that Ms. Sanger supported black eugenics, a racist attitude toward black and other minority babies; an elitist attitude toward those she regarded as “the feeble minded;” speaking at rallies of Ku Klux Klan women; and communications with Hitler sympathizers. Also, the notorious “Negro Project” which sought to limit, if not eliminate, black births, was her brainchild. Despite these well-documented facts of history, her bust sits proudly in your gallery as a hero of justice. The obvious incongruity is staggering!
