For the first half of the year we will be learning about U.S. History through the eyes of groups that have been ignored, mistreated, and abused. This class will focus on the experiences of three major groups: African American, women, and Native Americans. We will explore into the roots of race hatred in America, the long journey and sacrifices of women to gain equal rights, and come to understand how some present day native reservations are identified as the poorest places in the country.
