This is not a Sara’s Read book, but it is still, nonetheless, important.
In this book, Zinn reveals the true history behind America. Lately there has been a call to switch Columbus Day to Indigenous People’s Day - this book reveals the history behind Columbus.
Also, this book duscusses Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln couldn’t have given a shit less about slavery. He didn’t care for African Americans. In fact, he wanted to send them back to Africa because he thought they were savages.
Everyone should read this book, so as to know the true history.
(It also addresses how peacful protests were treated in history as well. Very relevant and very important to Ferguson.)
