Sandy Wilson [Citizen Engagement]
Citizen Engagement is declared IN FAVOR of HF 2099. We would like to see a requirement that any unit on slavery also require the study of human slavery throughout the world and including a study of They Were White and They Were Slaves by Michael A. Hoffman, II, which is available for free online by pdf. , or a similar history book. We believe it is important to study slavery throughout history and not limit it to one historical era.http://jrbooksonline.com/PDFBooks/theywereslaves.pdf
