Remapping the Beginning: Freeing the Nation's Foundation Story from its White Supremacist Chains

We can't merely take to the streets periodically. We must take to the streets and stay there until we turn the corner on what kind of country we want to be. But other actions are needed too. Among them is the coincident development/acceptance of a cohesive vision, one that doesn't merely view white supremacy as a morally flawed value, but that recognizes it as integral to U.S. history as we know it. This means that moving forward on this issue requires a massive rewrite of U.S. history in order to show the ways in which white supremacy has defined the nation from the beginning. It also means confronting all the nation's institutions in order to root out white supremacy's hidden presence within them.
