It’s crazy how there is so much that we don’t even know about our own country. The reading for week 2 really opened my eyes to how much I don’t know. Although I was taught about slavery in high school, there is so much that was left out and not even talked about. I’m grateful I am able to educate myself on this topic because it’s one of the biggest problems. Thinking about how much I didn’t know before and still may not know, it makes me wonder, “Why aren’t most people taught about the deep truth of slavery?” This is a question that educators need to be asked. I did a little research on that question, and found many articles talking about how schools are failing to teach the truth about slavery. There are many films and documentaries that teach you so much about the history of slavery that I think the majority of people should watch. Even researching or talking to people who are educated on the topic would help.
