Clicking on a spot will give you information about a particular event, and also will show you the impact of that event on others.  It’s a great illustration of cause-and-effect which we see so often in history.

  1. People may feel that talking about Harriet Tubman and Martin Luther King, Jr. is an annoyingly repetition but Black History is so much more. It not only remembers us of our country’s past mistakes but the courage and achievements of an oppressive people can inspire us everyday.

    • That was fun to see, Rita. And your comment captures why I love learning about history — we can learn and be inspired.
