The group, Woman on 20’s initiated the campaign to replace Andrew Jackson with a woman on the currency.
Black leaders were outraged when they discovered the racist Margaret Sanger had been selected as a candidate for US currency.
Rev. Clenard Childress, president of LEARN Northeast, a national African American organization, sent this comment to Life Dynamics, “This is the most diabolical, racist person of the century why have her on the twenty dollar bill? I think it would be a total disrespect to African Americans and minorities because of her eugenics history.”
Former Miss Delaware, Day Garner was livid, “Margaret Sanger was a despicable woman who believed that the only people worthy of life –be white and perfect,” she said.
