Built from the profits of selling slaves, Boston’s Faneuil Hall considering changes

Kevin C. Peterson,

Plans are currently being considered by the little known Boston Landmarks Commission to make cosmetic changes to the facade of Faneuil Hall, one of the nation’s civic centerpieces.

While at it, the commission members should also change its name.

Faneuil Hall to many across the country is considered a cradle of liberty where ideas about democracy and civic engagement were forged. Unique concepts of American liberty and egalitarianism were nurtured and debated within its walls.
