Black History is America’s History. –

 

As a student I have observed over the years that; Black History is not covered in U.S. History like it should be. Clearly the triumphs that African-Americans went through in America is extremely signifigant to America’s History, yet it is not covered in our U.S. History textbooks.

At my school in order to even cover Black History, you have to sign up for a separate class; African-American Studies. There is no reason why the two significant pieces of History is separated in the majority of text books. There is no such topic of ‘simply’ Black History (so to speak).

Do you believe Black History should be separated from U.S. History?

Will have to go!

 

I look at my own body
With eyes no longer blind—
And I see that my own hands can make
The world that’s in my mind.
Then let us hurry, comrades,
The road to find.
