Accurate accounts of history can reveal fascinating
nuggets of truth and moments in time that gives
us deeper and more meaningful insights of our
ancestral past and our true identity.
When students are miseducated and can
only glean from unfavorable stories and stereotypes
reported on the news read in newspapers, heard on
radio, seen in movies and on television... they
end up having little to no respect or appreciation for
African Americans because of negative slants, etc.
In far too many cases, African Americans are grossly
over-looked or hardly ever described in a positive light
to any of us. The children and our world should be

Our collective past, from the first civilizations, the middle
ages and into the modern era are overflowing with
astounding discoveries of strong, faithful and fearless
people who, may not be mentioned in our classroom
books, but they have contributed greatly and provided
strong and sound shoulders for us all to stand on.
Lies and distortions about our racist legacy have
laid the deceptive groundwork for imminent
catastrophes, i.e., racial indifferences, injustice,
systemic oppression, redlining neighborhoods,
inequalities, police profiling, police brutality, mass
incarceration and many other expressions of
hostility and/or discriminatory practices.
These historical distortions and/or ideologies
were created by those who came before us and
they passed these distortions and/or ideological
influences on to generations following them.
