Well, here is a good essay to help build a case for the TRUE History of the Americas. It is written by
Ms A'Lelia Bundles -- the great-granddaughter of Madame C J Walker (a Black inventor-businesswoman-activist-millionaire)
Ms Bundles says: Students [educators and parents, too] can download the free app for Al Jazeera magazine to access the August 2015 issue devoted to the Ferguson anniversary. There also may be other articles of interest to them.
They can go to the app stores via their phones or pads. Here are the links:
