We will be covering historical figures throughout American history, in order to be accurate and give students a fuller understanding of the contributions made by these individuals, I will have to address racism, sexism and intolerance. I will do so in a very gentle and conscientious manner. My goal is to honor the memories of these individuals therefore, much of the focus will remain in the honoring.
