We have been studying about African American history in our humanities studies. We started by learning about the beginning of slavery and the middle passage. After this, we learned about famous abolitionists such as Fredrick Douglas and Harriet Beecher Stowe. We then learned about events that led up to the Civil war and the major causes of it. We even watched a video about Abraham Lincoln and read part of a debate he gave showing he isn’t always the hero he’s made up to be.
