I am an immigrant and did not learn any of this in the school where I was going to. I am so grateful for this course. I am in Canada, and it is astonishing how much Canadian history resembles USA history of racism. Canada has its own history of slavery and residential schools for Indigenous children, as well as the 60's scoop, bringing Indigenous children into care and adopting them in white families. And to this day, there is a huge disproportion of black and Indigenous children and youth in child welfare. This needs to change on both sides of the border, and needs to change now!
