Respond to the following questions

———— “American history is longer, larger, more various, more beautiful, and more terrible than anything anyone has ever said about it.” ~ James Baldwin
————-“One is astonished in the study of history at the recurrence of the idea that evil must be forgotten, distorted, skimmed over. … The difficulty, of course, with this philosophy is that history loses its value as an incentive and example; it paints perfect men and noble nations, but it does not tell the truth.” ~W.E.B. Du Bois
