Slavery is often the ‘elephant in the room’ that no one wants to talk about and yet this historical injustice has had a major impact on all aspects of US history and culture.
Please address ONE of the following questions:
How can archaeological research be used to help fix one of the issues with teaching slavery? (Choose one of the issues from Part 1 of Teaching Hard History)
Will more of a focus on resistance (such as maroon settlements or daily resistance) change the way that this historical injustice is perceived?
Why is it important to acknowledge the role that slavery had in the development of African American culture and to whom does this culture belong to (as in the case of food or folktales)?
