How Are Educators Rethinking U.S. History Education?

As the uprisings for racial justice continue through the summer, they are shedding light on just how much our classrooms whitewash U.S. history and leave out important narratives of Black and Indigenous people, and other histories of people of color. Over the last few weeks, some people, particularly white people, are now realizing they weren’t taught certain aspects of U.S. history, such as the Tulsa race massacre, or how redlining segregated many U.S. cities, and this has prompted many to rethink about how we teach history in this country and how to fix it.
