In a video posted on The Black History School, we learn more about The same man who wrote the first drafts of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights was also a slave owner. He believed that slaves were both human and property; he referred to slaves as being members of an “unfortunate race” in the Constitution. Coined as the Father of the Constitution, he is still celebrated as an American hero. Madison is memorialized with a $75 million dollar building, a university, and numerous statues that honor him.

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.
