It’s a cliché that history is written by the victors, but it also happens to be true. In the case of the history of the United States of America, the predominant narrative has been that of the European-Americans who seized and settled the land, rather than that of the indigenous population they displaced or the African-American population they imported as slaves. This introductory program is as an overview which will allow your students to compare and contrast the European-American and African-American narratives of what happened in the last four centuries. Engaging with both narratives will help them understand how and why history is written and why it matters today.
