One of my favorite presidents. This is the statue of him at the Museum of Natural History. It’s kinda racist, isn’t it? There’s a native American on one side of him and an African on the other. It gives a subservient, walking-below-the-great-man feel to the statue. I just googled it and sure enough, there have been calls for its removal.
I've written six non-fiction books, the most recent is Damnation Island: Poor, Sick, Mad, and Criminal in 19th-Century New York.View all posts by Stacy Horn →
