They way we think about the past shapes our interpretation of the present. History–the stories we tell about ourselves–says a great deal about who is considered part of that story and the value of their roles. People who are left out of the story are made invisible, which leads leads to disenfranchisement and voicelessness in the present. For instance, the indispensable contributions to American life made by Muslim people are largely untaught in schools, and are therefore unknown by the broader public. Similarly, the role of the FBI in disrupting the civil rights movement, along with the spying, arrest, and assassination of civil rights leaders is obscured, leaving students to wonder, ‘What happened to the civil rights movement after 1965?’ Energy companies have successfully kept the catastrophic dangers of burning coal out of classrooms and out of the public eye, while carbon emissions and corporate profits continue to soar. Social justice requires telling these hidden stories and uncovering those parts of our common past that have been shrouded from sight.
