Studying slavery makes me feel ashamed.

Sam Henry,
Ashville, NC.

As a white male Social Studies teacher I always have a difficult time teaching slavery. From what I know about my family tree I don’t have any family members that owned slaves but that is hardly the point. It is a shameful period in our history but one worth studying. I want my 8th grade students to know the truth.
