Ruel J. Eskelsen - 11/4/2009
We in the United States need to read and study the historiography of slavery, abolition, and the struggle for justice by women and many other groups who had to fight (and are currently fighting, e.g. GLBT citizens) for their rights. Part of that story is the good news of white males (normally representative of the oppressor group) acting as allies in the fight for justice.
The knowledge is out there in the historical literature, but I feel most in the U.S. do not know about it.
The good the bad and the ugly of history needs to be told to reveal the heroism and the horror that is the history of humanity.
