We can see that history and historical policies are still shaping thought today. As a southerner I see this especially prevalent in the south where people still hold onto things like the confederate flag.
I personally believe that one of the reasons things like this are still such major issues today is the education system. We have literally whitewashed our history. By continuing to teach this whitewashed history we carry on that legacy of ignorance. I have been fortunate to have studied this topic before and as such most of this was review. The videos were really informative and I hope to pass these resources on to friends and fellow educators so that we can continue our work towards a more just and equal society.
