Bending History – Part 2

I want American history taught. Unless I’m in that book, you’re not in it either. History is not a procession of illustrious people. It’s about what happens to a people. Millions of anonymous people is what history is about.
James Baldwin

Not long ago I wrote a little post about the California education initiative to actually ‘teach’ LGBTQ history. 

Imagine that.

Today the California Senate passed on this plan.

SACRAMENTO — A bill that would require California public schools to fairly and accurately portray the historic contributions of LGBT people in social science instruction passed the Senate in a 23-14 vote.

It is now headed to the California House.
