Do you think these historical events, rules, and laws still impact our society today? What are your thoughts after viewing these videos?
All five of the videos we were asked to watch still have a direct impact on our society today. While I knew about some of them - my consideration to them was never given the full attention it should have. Our history lessons and classes must include these conversations. When these historical events, rules and laws are left out of classroom history books - it is not only erased - it makes the narrative that racism does not exist in our society today and only in "history" even though there is so much to point to in current events, rules and practices.
