Teaching Hard History

Schools are not adequately teaching the history of American slavery, educators are not sufficiently prepared to teach it, textbooks do not have enough material about it, and – as a result – students lack a basic knowledge of the important role it played in shaping the United States and the impact it continues to have on race relations in America

I am not sure it is wise to try and teach the truth about slavery to today's youth in school. I remember the effect Roots had on all schools in New Orleans. Black youth and teenagers jumped on white kids and gave teachers hell for a few weeks.

I think your fears may have some validity, since there will be a certain percentage of the students who may take the history as an excuse to act out their frustration on others. I would hope that they took it as I did, a reason to out smart White children. Unfortunately, it is hard to turn negative responses to emotions into positive actions. Still in the end, the truth needs to be known and expecting a government funded organization to disseminate the truth is an exercise in futility. I think we would probably be better off making sure our children know the true history from us (their parents and elders).

I wholeheartedly agree with your wise advice as well!!!!!

1619+400=2019 Jamestown Virginia...end of slavery. (Yes modern miseducation and injustices count as slavery) But no proper reparations will be given since the amount of contributions beyond humanity transcends generations. Our people have history that is equal to trillions of dollars including Melanin research and its supernatural power.
I want my people to be aware of this dilemma regarding the upcoming election... I know politics. Yes Trump is admitting the truth about Black People building this so called country corporation (The United States). But you must understand that what they're planning on doing is to divide and conquer. This is all just for him to get re-elected. He's going to promise reparations and reneg at the last minute.
