Dr. Martin Luther King on Reconstruction Zinn Education Project
We recommend reading what Dr. Martin Luther King had to say about Reconstruction as part of his tribute to W. E. B. Du Bois on Feb. 23, 1968. King explains that myths about Reconstruction poisoned “the collective mind of America with racism” and he describes how Du Bois set out to demolish those myths in his vital text, Black Reconstruction in America.
Unfortunately, we found that many of the myths W. E. B. Du Bois and Dr. Martin Luther King described still prevail in state standards on Reconstruction. Those findings are documented in Erasing the Black Freedom Struggle: How State Standards Fail to Teach the Truth About Reconstruction. This is the first-ever report to describe and critique how states recommend teaching Reconstruction.
