Do you think these historical events, rules, and laws still impact our society today? Absolutely! The ways in which people of the past have been treated by racism, by events, and by laws impact their lives in major ways today. Generational stories, poverty, and trouble extending beyond your circumstances because of things of the past. Also, even though these things were in the past, many of the people who lived then are still alive or were impacted by their parents and grandparents who lived through it. Those who were impacted share their stories with future generations. What are your thoughts after viewing these videos? It is absolutely horrible what has been done in the past. There are so many stories that have happened in the history of the US that are not taught in schools. Personally, I don't understand how these things could be done. It doesn't make sense to me how people have objectified and mistreated people so badly.
