A group pushing for anti-racism training in the Rochester City School District says one of the big problems with American public schools is a Euro-centric approach to teaching history. They say it’s racist and that there’s much more beyond the borders of Europe to teach.
So what do they think a non-racist approach to teaching history looks like? We discuss it with our guests:
- Howard Eagle, member of the steering committee for the Movement for Anti-Racist Ministry and Action (MAMA)
- Jason Willis, Ph.D., director of African-American Studies at the Rochester City School District
- Minister Clifford Florence, president of Faith Community Alliance
- Rev. Judith Davis, member of the steering committee for the Movement for Anti-Racist Ministry and Action (MAMA)
