As a native of Massachusetts, I'm outraged that we were never taught the fullness of history in elementary and secondary schools. Let's tell the truth and then set the record straight. Change the name of Faneuil Hall as an outward and visible sign of our commitment to eradicate white supremacy.

It is embarrassing, now that everyone knows that Faneuil was a slave trader, to honor him in any way. Call the building something else!

Peter Faneuil earned his money from the slave trade. We should not honor him. we need to remember this place as a place dedicated to selling slaves. We should be teaching history here, not celebrating a slave trader and slave owner.

There is no freedom for anyone in the US when the truth about our racist past is hidden.

Please rename "Faneuil" Hall as Freeman Hall. In the 1780s Elizabeth Freeman's court case, along with Quock Walker's, ended slavery in Massachusetts. Though Ms. Freeman is better known as Mum Bet, she chose Freeman as her own new name. It symbolizes liberty for her and others, and we can take pride in it.

We should not have monuments for slave owners. Rename it after Crispus Attucks, the first person killed in the Boston Massacre, who was of African and Native descent.

Let’s try to make positive changes starting by condemning rather than celebrating slave traders. Otherwise how can we ever begin the much needed healing process?
