Reconstructing the Black Narrative

#CharlestonSyllabus #BlackHistory

"As educators, when we teach about the history of racial violence, the history of the black church, the history of the Confederate flag, the history of the Obama presidency, or any number of other themes related to the centrality of race in American history, we will have to teach about Charleston."
