Beyond Black History Month: We still need Black History!

23 minutes

No, it's not Black History Month but Black history is still important. Protests. Marches. Covid pandemic. Police violence. Systemic racism. These are not new in American history. Yet many people have forgotten how these events have had a regular presence throughout American (and perhaps world) history. Are we doomed to repeat the failures of the past? Have we learned how to approach these important issues effectively? Robin and Hans think that history is important but that it is not getting the attention needed to have an impact. They discuss how the educational system in America approaches African American history (spoiler alert: fail) and the effects of America's failure to teach and value Black history. Join us for this lively conversation about Black history. It's not just to learn for a single month anymore!
