Out of curiosity, what were you taught about the Black Panthers in school?
I remember the “We Didn’t Start the Fire” project in American history class and reading a book on Japanese internment in American lit (they were the same class in a two hour block), but everything else seems to be a blip on the radar.
Nonfiction is not typically my jam, but I’ve found myself gravitating to it more of late. That’s why I picked up Kekla Magoon’s Revolution In Our Time. It definitely helps that I heard Magoon lecture on the topic last November at the ALAN Workshop.
