Not until college.
 
The black history section of the history book in highschool was only one chapter.
 
1/2 was about MLK no mention of Malcolm X
1/4 Harriet Tubman
1/4 Frederick Douglass
 
I plan to supplement my daughter's public school teachings with you know....the truth

Black people need to take back our schools!


Why don't we create a master plan to change our community... starting with creating more professionals to flood the education, health and political systems

We need more teachers
We need more doctors
We need more civil troops with OUR interests at hand (not no two stepping, "I'm here for ALL people *side bar, except Black*" politicians)

before we started school, Dad used to gather us every night around 7 for reading time. We'd sit on the floor and take turns reading about our ancestors/heroes. I loved it when it was my turn to read (always loved reading aloud to people lol).

I remember a history teacher who glossed over C. Attucks at the Boston Mass. by saying he was some drunk who just happened to holler out during a standoff and was shot.  nothing of him being a hero, the first casualty or him having any knowledge of what was even going on. I raised my little hand to correct her.

Luckily i grew up in a family that shared 'our' history orally (i used to tape the Elders speaking at holiday dinners), my maternal family is from the South

i also had an African-American history course in high school, taught by a young black woman, that was very challenging and eye-opening.

IT should be mandatory in every school...not just in February
