“Lies” My Teacher Told Me – How American History can be used as a Weapon

How history textbooks often present an incomplete story of America, usually by soft-pedaling and burying the thorny dramas and uncertainties of the past in order to teach specific values.

  • Did Columbus really discover America?
  • Washington and the Cherry Tree? Honest Abe Lincoln?
  • What happened at the “First Thanksgiving?
  • Were African-Americans better off under slavery?
  • Who really invented baseball?
  • Why are Confederate Monuments so important today?
  • How are myths perpetuated?

This is an interactive session, controversial issues will be raised, guaranteed to get you thinking!
