Racist American History: Should we Teach the Children?

November 8, 2017

Racist American History is a thing we can agree exists, right? And with all the talk about Confederate Monuments and what to do with them, it’s appropriate to explore the divergent answers that each hope for reconciliation. Then we can see how best to achieve the goal of Beloved Community.

A while ago, Fr. Cayce & I (Fr. Jabriel) recorded an episode that we never released. I don’t know why we never got around to releasing it…I guess so we could release it now! LOL

But it’s timely now. Our Country has been in a recent uproar about Confederate Monuments. Most on the Right have made it clear that we need to honor those who took up arms against America. Most on the Left have made it clear we need to deface that history altogether.

Which of these is the solution? Or is there an alternative?

In this episode, we’re not talking about Confederate monuments. We’re actually discussing the institution of slavery and how to effectively teach it in schools – if at all. I think you’ll be surprised by our discussion!

So, we want to share this with you as a foundation for discussion. And we invite you to share your responses in our Facebook group.

What do you think is the appropriate solution and approach to these issues? And how does that solution bring healing?

Also, please take a moment to write a review for our show!
