Why are people afraid of teaching the truth behind US history?

At Shout Your Cause, we promise to have difficult discussions, and that includes racism and the white-washing of American history. This episode is no exception. Recently, I met Megan Geha on TikTok, a social media platform used to create 15-second to 3-minute episodes of all kinds of content. Megan is a teacher in Iowa, an advocate of raising awareness around anti-racism. She has been in the news of late, including on Tucker Carlson's blog, though not painted in a good light from the right-wing perspective. I interviewed her to get to the bottom of the ruckus in the media and to find out more about her anti-racist platform.

HUMBLE PIE

What you don't know about Jim Crow

by Sally Hendrick

Two little girls in rural West Tennessee are best friends but only in secret. Separated by a cotton field, their lives couldn't be any more different. Sudie's and Mabie's friendship, beautiful yet tragic, leaves a mark for generations to come.

Sally takes you on a journey back in time to the early 1900's Jim Crow South, as she imagines what life was like for her grandmother, Sudie, weaving together memories from her own childhood and stories from her family, even the black women who raised her.
