What everyone should know about Reconstruction 150 years after the 15th Amendment's ratification


...this comment underscored how closely Americans associate black history with slavery.

While shocked, I knew this mistaken belief reflected the lack of time, depth and breadth schools devote to black history. Most students get limited information and context about what African Americans have experienced since our ancestors arrived here four centuries ago. Without independent study, most adults aren’t up to speed either.

The surprising reasons there are so few Black scientists in the space industry


NASA’s efforts to focus on recruiting specifically Black candidates into the organization has shifted since the ’60s. Now the organization partners with historically Black colleges and universities and has awarded $33 million in grants through its Minority University Research and Education Project.

George and Martha Washington enslaved 300 people. Let’s start with their names


Austin
Moll
Giles
Ona Judge
Paris
Hercules
Joe
Richmond
Christopher Sheels

William Lee

That’s just 10 names of the more than 300 people enslaved by George and Martha Washington. They worked and traveled most closely with our nation’s first First Family as chamber maids, postilions, cooks, waiters, laborers, seamstresses and valets.


In this portrait, George Washington (1732–1799) is shown standing on a bluff above the Hudson River with his enslaved personal servant, William Lee, on horseback behind him.

The story of Stone Mountain, the world’s largest Confederate monument


The project’s first sculptor was Gutzon Borglom, and he envisioned a cavalcade of more than a thousand figures representing the Confederacy. Borglum was fired after disputes with the project’s financiers, and went on to a new project: Mount Rushmore. The work he’d done on Robert E. Lee was blasted off the mountainside, and work began in earnest on the current carving in 1925.
