Vocal Point-Dr. Carol Swain

Topic: The Battle Over American History

There is indeed a battle over American history. This is not just a battle over dry historical dates and names. It’s a battle over who we were, what we are, and what we will be. President Trump helped initiate a 1776 Commission, which President Biden has now pulled the plug on. The 1776 Report the Commission released observes: “The declared purpose of the President’s Advisory 1776 Commission is to ‘enable a rising generation to understand the history and principles of the founding of the United States in 1776 and to strive to form a more perfect Union.’ This requires a restoration of American education, which can only be grounded on a history of those principles that is ‘accurate, honest, unifying, inspiring, and ennobling.’” Prominent African-American conservative scholar Dr. Carol Swain, a retired professor from Vanderbilt Law School, was one of the leaders of the Commission. Dr. Carol Swain joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the importance of accurate American history. and
