OGL HISTORY MAKERS ADVISORY BOARD

“If you know whence you came, there is really no limit to where you can go.”

- James Baldwin

 

PROBLEM

The legacy, culture and contributions of Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) Americans is missing from the official storyline of the building of America due to the historical dehumanization and erasure of BIPOC Americans leading to a lack of accurate representation in American history textbooks.

 

SOLUTION

Create new American history books written by the descendants of BIPOC American pioneers.

 

IMPACT

Allow BIPOC Americans to document, preserve and publicize their American family legacy and change the way American history is taught.

PROOF OF CONCEPT

100% of participants are more interested in learning more about BIPOC American history as a direct result of their participation in the 2020 beta test of the workshop series. Participants are currently editing their chapters for the history book to be published at the end of 2021.

NEXT STEPS

Design all aspects of THE American history book of American history books written by BIPOC Americans while conducting the second cohort of History Makers Workshops. Publish.
