Book Description:

Are we educated, or are we indoctrinated? What do we really know? How do we know these things? Let us now open our eyes, our ears, and our hearts and get ready for a brand-new narrative! It is time we take a hard look at our history books and get together to discuss what needs to be done to change things. We always talk about how our history and the textbooks are inaccurate, but we never correct them, at least many of us do not. This history discussion must be inclusive to include all races, creeds and colors. We must not be afraid to look at the past, explore it, correct it and move on unified. We are stuck, and we cannot fail another generation of school children. This work must be done together. We will never achieve equity if the common people have limited access to the truth. Let us make things right and get back to the ideals of freedom and equality for all.
