300 word minimum

Explain why every American should know this history and propose how knowing specific parts of this history could help mend race relations in the United States.

You will be expected to use specific facts, events, and people from the class content, textbook, lessons, lectures, discussions, and videos to show how knowing this history can explain the trauma that has affected so many Americans.

These facts, events, and people must come from your required work this term and from research in the library or from the course bibliography.

In your letter, demonstrate the breadth of knowledge you have gained from this work.

If you wish, you can add to the letter some ways to heal our nation.
