Why Black History for White People?

As activists we have seen effects of ignorance about and cultural whitewashing of history.  We believe that if white US americans understood the history of DOS, then the need to act for reparations and other economic and policy changes would be clear.  

We believe that in order to solve many of the problems plaguing our society today, we must get to the heart of inequality in our culture — the enslavement and continued systemic oppression of descendants of slaves.
