Teaching the N-word’s history to today’s black students

For a long time, this was all the back story I shared with classes of kids regarding my interest in the civil rights movement. Then one day, a young lady raised her hand. “There’s more to it, isn’t there?” she said. “Yes,” I replied. “So, give already,” she said. “I’m too ashamed,” I replied.

A totally inadequate response. I recognized. So now I tell it all when I visit a school.
