Summary
"In a nation riled by deepening divides, Mayor Billy's book offers a new approach to helping citizens gain a shared understanding of our relationships and value to each other. 'Sharing Common Ground' is leading the engagement of Middle School students (grades 6-8) in discovering stories buried in American history. These young people are led to uncover, learn about and interactively share with each other (along with families, friends and communities) the untold and often mistold stories of freed slaves and their suffering and achievements in the Reconstruction era during and after the American Civil War. Education largely ignores these remarkable stories and what they can teach us about our fellow humans. Our students are not taught the success stories of the newfound freedom of the formerly enslaved and how the Jim Crow period stripped away the freedoms and stifled their resourcefulness through fear and intimidation. Regrettably, their descendants have no idea about where they came from and where they can go in the future based on their forbearer's ingenuity and successes." - https://sharingcommonground.com/
