Why Learn?  Why Teach? Critical Thoughts.

Black history is American history. Full stop.

But somehow the narratives we’re taught often grossly misrepresent the history of black people in America. After all, a true and full history of the United States would require a reckoning of a not-so-great country, one that’s mired in hate and fear.

The history of the civil rights movement is no different.
