National African American History MuseumAn African-American group is seeking to correct issues stemming from the National Museum of African-American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.

Clenard Childress, Jr., assistant to the national director of the Life Education And Resource Network (L.E.A.R.N., Inc.) and pastor of New Calvary Baptist Church in Montclair, New Jersey, has joined with other African-American leaders for protests at the museum over "glaring misrepresentations of African-American history."

"[It] has excluded notable figures such as Clarence Thomas, Mia Love, [and] also the title or anything referenced to eugenics, which has impacted African-Americans in this country more so than any other issue," Childress reports.

The abortion industry targets black women to abort their children, as that was something Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger supported. She considered blacks to be "weeds" that should be rooted out from society.

So Childress' group has filed suit against the museum. But the case is actually against the museum staff, who threatened to forcefully remove the pro-lifers from a public sidewalk during demonstrations in violation of their First Amendment rights.

"Obviously the museum and its board is overstepping their authority and in so doing taking away the rights of the citizens they're supposed to represent," the pastor asserts.

The protesting group asked for meetings with museum officials to discuss their concerns and constitutional rights, but those requests were simply ignored.
