A little more history than what was taught in (uhh) “his-story” class.
btw, I don’t blame the teachers (per’se) they are only (gasp) following orders.
This may sound strange and almost impossible for most but many heroic American black people have intentionally been kept out of the history books in American schools. These are people who put their lives on the line for our country but were denied their place in history.
To add insult to disrespect, they were also portrayed as slaves in paintings celebrating victorious moments in history rather than the heroic roles they played to save this nation. As the truth is uncovered we are learning that America has forgotten those who made it great.
