I agree we should keep Hamilton and replace Jackson. But do we have to reach far back in time to find an historical figure -- or does that just make it a safe choice because the mythology surrounding the figure might make her shinier than the person was, in fact. Nothing against Harriet Tubman or her contribution, but perhaps someone from the modern era -- say, Barbara Jordan -- would inspire more conversation and possibly emulation? See more
