In a video posted on The Black History School, we learn more about Coined as one of America’s greatest presidents, Woodrow Wilson led America through the first World War and gave equal voting rights to women. He also won a Nobel Peace Prize. The darker side of Wilson’s leadership was revealed when he was the president of Princeton University. He wrote, History of the American People, a book that justified the existence of the KKK. He also discouraged Blacks from applying to Princeton. During his two terms as president, he enforced a segregated military and banned Blacks from fighting in combat.

The black history school was designed by leading black experts to ensure that black people are fully aware of an unfiltered version of our history. We don’t have to rely on others to explain the greatness of our people and we don’t need others to educate our children. Instead, this platform is structured to give millions of black men, women and children around the world access to the truth from which we came.
