These eye opening interviews were recently done for Black History Month at BYU February 2012 clearly showing not only the ignorance and distorted sterotypes that most whites still have about Black people, but also what some of us have about ourselves.
Most students, black and white go through 12 years of school learning very little about Black History beyond the fact that we were slaves. Students know little of the significant political, social and scientific contributions African Americans have made in the building of America. This lack of knowledge leads most whites to a false sense of superiority and black children to a sense of inferiority.
Black History (click here) is American history and until it is incorporated in all American History classes for all grade levels, we will continue to have a lack of understanding and respect of African Americans. What do you think?
