As a quintessential (white) baby boomer, I never learned anything about African American history. Nothing. In grade school I read a lot of biographies from the school library that had orange covers. One was about George Washington Carver. That was it. Never, not one time that I remember, was I taught about AA history. Nothing I remember about women either. Or Native Americans. History was taught about white men & dates & battles & revisionist hogwash. Not until community college did I have a teacher who ever made history relatable. Sad.
