Dark parts of American history are often swept under the rug for being too shameful and painful. But engaging with that history is crucial to understand the present — and figure out how to move forward.

A new website, called Monroe Work Today, is bringing the harrowing history of lynching in the United States out of the shadows. Its detailed map and other resources document the names and experiences of nearly 5,000 people of color who were killed between 1835 and 1963. 

“History class taught you the tip of the iceberg,” the site reads. “Every citizen has a duty to know this story. This history belongs to everyone.”

Black lives matter in textbooks, too.

Fifteen-year-old Coby Burren underscored this point when he sent his mom, Roni Dean-Burren, a photo of a page from his ninth grade World Geography textbook which wrongly described African slaves as “workers.”

Dean-Burren posted her son’s text message to her Instagram page.

“The Atlantic slave trade brought millions of workers… notice the nuanced language there,”  her caption read. “Workers implies wages… yes?”

5 Things About Slavery You Probably Didn’t Learn In Social Studies: A Short Guide To ‘The Half Has Never Been Told’

Edward Baptist’s new book, “The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery And The Making Of American Capitalism”, drew a lot of attention last month after the Economist said it was too hard on slave owners.

What you might not have taken away from the ensuing media storm is that “The Half Has Never Been Told” is quite a gripping read. Baptist weaves deftly between analysis of economic data and narrative prose to paint a picture of American slavery that is pretty different from what you may have learned in high school Social Studies class.

The whole thing is well worth reading in full. Baptist positions his book in opposition to textbooks that present slavery like a distant aberration of American history, cramming 250 years into a few chapters in a way “that cuts the beating heart out of the story.” To counter that image of history, Baptist devotes much of the book to depicting the lived experience of enslavement in a way that’s vivid and immediate.

Robot Uncovers Ancient Burial Chambers Beneath Teotihuacan Temple

A small robot has uncovered three 2,000-year-old chambers under an ancient temple in Mexico, archaeologists from the National Anthropology and History Institute announced this week.

The robot, named Tlaloc II-TC after Mexico’s ancient god of rain, found the chambers under the Temple of the Feathered Serpent (also called the Temple of Quetzalcoatl) in the Mesoamerican ruins of Teotihuacan, which is just 30 miles from Mexico City. The ancient city, thought to have been established around 100 BC, had more than 100,000 inhabitants at its peak, but had long been abandoned before the Aztecs arrived in the 1300s.

British Mom Dies Day After Cancer Diagnosis

Kirsty Allen was your normal, healthy young mother. Mom to Ebony, 6, and Adam, 2, the 29-year-old from Annfield Plain, County Durham, UK worked part-time as an office administrator. She was looking forward to a ceremony at St. Joseph’s Church in Stanley, where she’d be named godmother to her brother Karl’s 5-month-old son Austen. Tragically, that rite never happened. The family still gathered at the church, but under a much darker circumstance: Kirsty’s funeral.
