In a video posted on The Black History School, we learn more about Harry Truman started in the white house as vice president but eventually became president when Roosevelt died. During his two terms as president, he dealt with many international affairs including the start of the United Nations and the Korean War which bled into domestic issues. Black soldiers in the Korean were were mistreated and beaten upon their return. Truman responded by desegregating the Armed Forces. He also made it illegal to discriminate against minorities applying to join the Armed Forces.

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.
