In 1814, Francis Scott Key wrote the lyrics to "The Star-Spangled Banner" after watching the British bomb Fort McHenry during the War of 1812. The song would become the national anthem in 1931. Recently, following NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick's refusal to stand during the song to protest institutional racism, the anthem's own racist lyrics have come to light. Find out how early abolitionists first protested Key's words.
