“Black” History Month 0
It’s not “black” history. It’s American history, as the Fayetteville Observer points out, after listing events scheduled in its area.
The list (of events–ed.) is long. Eventually, though, it comes back to a history stolen from us – all of us, of all colors – by antebellum shibboleths and Reconstruction-era revisionism, much of it still uncorrected because of a fear: Young minds can’t handle detailed discussion of U.S. history the way it actually happened.
That fiction has survived too long already. It isn’t “the children” who are being protected.
