We the Students: Essays That Claim Our Marginalized Histories

Written by John D. O’Bryant School of Math and Science ninth graders, this book contains biographies of individuals, from Shirley Chisholm to Chelsea Manning, who students believe have been silenced and overlooked in both their history classes and textbooks. By shedding light on these marginalized voices, their writing demonstrates the importance of teaching an honest and thoughtful U.S. history.
