I like to think that I am fairly educated on many of the racial disparities throughout history - whether they be events, laws, etc. Many of the videos served as a reminder of things that I already knew. However, there were still things that were presented here I did not know.
As a white passing Hispanic person, I have the privilege of not knowing many of our country's more painful events tied to race. I'm also a history buff and am always looking to find ways to learn about lesser known history, from podcasts to documentaries to films. But many of the topics discussed in these videos should be taught in schools and should not be what is essentially optional learning. For example, until the 2019 Watchmen HBO series debuted, I had zero familiarity with the Black Wall Street race massacre. This is a major part of not just African American history, but American history.
I am hoping that by advocating for curriculum change in schools, the topics that these videos cover will no longer be "optional" learning.
