Article on Blavity: The Deleted Anti-Slavery Clause of the Declaration of Independence

Just in time for the 4th of July, I wrote a story about the anti-slavery clause that Jefferson wrote but that was removed from the Declaration of Independence in order to protect the institution of slavery.

From the article:

Jefferson even calls out “the Christian King of Great Britain,” for implementing this very un-Christian practice. Reading this, you’d almost think Jefferson was a pioneer in wokeness (in reality, though he was uncomfortable with the institution of slavery from which he profited, he was also quite racist, but that’s a topic for another day).

You can read the whole things here.
