We then spent two weeks reading, discussing, and writing about The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass by Frederick Douglass himself. I believe we have more questions about slavery than answers. One of the lessons we've learned is to keep reading from different sources to get different perspectives. There are always at least two sides to every story. We will be keeping this at the forefront, and it's my hope students realize this is true of most things they read or hear.
Taft is next week, so our next update will be May 26th. Woah... this year is going by faster than all the rest!
