Education is a class weapon. It’s long been gated according to financial status, gender, and race, for a reason. Because when we know ourselves, and we know others, it’s more difficult to retreat into hate, nationalism, and xenophobia. And that’s bad for business – the elite class counts on us fighting amongst ourselves so that we don’t see their hands pulling the strings in the game that is our lives.
So to start off 2021, I want to encourage everyone who reads CVLT Nation to check out HomeTeam History. His well-researched and fascinating historical mini-documentaries cover the history of the African continent and diaspora that European colonizers have worked very hard to erase, co-opt, and steal. The colonial education systems that we experience in North America and Europe would have all of us think that African history doesn’t exist – in a university class I was actually led to believe that because many of Africa’s nations had an oral tradition, it was nearly impossible to know what had been going on there besides in Egypt. And we all know how Whitewashed Egyptian history is – the artifacts have been literally whitewashed by European archeologists and museums. Historians like HomeTeam History fill in the blanks that our education system purposely left out. If you enjoy his wealth of content then it would be rad if you could support him on Patreon. Here are a few of my favorites, but they’re really all good. I also recommend you read the comments because his audience of history buffs usually includes a lot of interesting additional facts to help flesh out the story.
