Saving America Through History

History changes when different people have the power to do the telling. Almost every president worth thinking about has been imagined and reimagined. Nobody really talks about Tulsa Massacre of 1921 when racists destroyed “Black Wall Street” and murdered the people who lived there in a fit of organized rage because aren’t pleasant, and they do not fit in with the narrative that America is the longest standing multi-racial democracy in the world. There is a danger in the notion that history will reveal the truth of our moment and sort the good from the bad. Past events don’t change, but the telling of history is a conversation that goes on for as long as we exist on this planet. Do you think history will change America?
