A New Look at American History

October 21, 2016

Tags: BlackLivesMatter

A public notice was defaced at Denver University last week. It was a poster about the national movement, "Black Lives Matter." The university called a general meeting; I attended and heard student response. The theme of that response: ENOUGH. This needs to stop.
As a historian who writes about American history it made me think. We've been teaching an upbeat history to our children, which is age appropriate but often not balanced. I'm doing some thinking. We need to learn more about the less than wonderful parts of our past. I plan to do some revising.

    I agree that it is important to know the beautiful and ugly truths of our history so that we can learn from the choices of our predecessors and teach our youth how to make choices that will benefit their generation and our future.
