History is so important, but even more important is the ability to decipher the truth from nostalgia.

My students, mostly young men and women of color, need to know the true story of this country so they can find a way to live in it.

The side that is trying to eliminate the proper and truthful telling of history is only interested in maintaining power. Truth to power is real and I’ll fight for that and continue teaching my students (and my own children and anybody else that will listen) real history as I continue to learn it myself.
