Writing About History, a difficult process
What is History? Is it what happened, or what what is said to have happened? How to tell the “Truth” about events that are no longer “visible” and “in the past”? Who has “a say” in writing History? How does one goes about writing about History? Is objectivity, in the process of historical writing, only a “noble dream”? Are there competing forces, with unequal access to the production of History who battle to shape narratives of “the past”? How to write the History of people and events that have been silenced? Can “the past” ever escape the present? Does History have power?
While much more titles could be added, in this brief proposed list, we offer you a suggestion of books that try to highlight the difficult task of writing about History.

We’re not people really. Our concerns are not America’s concerns. We are just here for entertainment. We’re a convenient treasure trove of limitless creativity to be pillaged, watered down, and re-purposed for White audiences and the people getting rich from bastardized stereotypes and simplified caricatures of everything we bring to the table have nothing to say when shit gets really real.
THAT’S WHY YOU DON’T FUCKING EVER TALK TO ME ABOUT MILEY, OR IGGY, OR FUCKING MACKLEMORE.
