Recently, Dr. John Mohr of the History Department at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) spoke with journalist Steve Johnson of WHNT News on the importance of teaching all aspects of history, including difficult and sensitive topics. Dr. Mohr discussed how it is important to remember the negative parts of our history so that we can learn to build a better society now and in the future. This conversation was inspired by Black History Month when we celebrate and reflect on the contributions of Black Americans to our shared historical memory.
