GENERATIONS TO KNOW

THE HISTORY OF THIS

COUNTRY--

"I CAN'T THINK OF A MORE

IMPORTANT THING TO COME TOO

COLLEGES SCHOOLS K THROUGH

12TH ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY

AND BEING LIVING HISTORY.

THE THING ABOUT LIVING

HISTORY IT BRINGS IT TO THE

YOUNG PEOPLE IN A

VERNACULAR THAT'S DIFFERENT

FROM JUST SAY A GENERAL

LECTURE OR STUDIES FROM A

BOOK AND SO LIVING HISTORY

CAPTURES THE IMAGINATION OF

YOUNG PEOPLE IN A WAY THAT

THE GENERAL LECTURE DOES

NOT."

"WHEN IT COMES TO AFRICAN

AMERICAN HISTORY I BELIEVE

IT'S VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE

WE ARE RELIVING SO MUCH OF

OUR PAST SO MUCH IS COMING

BACK TO US AND WHEN WE

LEARN ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO

HAVE STRUGGLED AND FOUGHT

FOR THE RIGHTS THAT WE ALL

HAVE I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT

TO BE ABLE TO RECOGNIZE

THEM AND SEE THESE THINGS

THAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE

PAST TO BE ABLE TO PREPARE

OURSELVES FOR THE FUTURE."
