The fight for the vote. Women's Suffrage. 5 minutes
Imagine if you couldn't vote because you are female. It's almost 100 hundred years now.

How is this even possible? It was only 75 years ago, and that's just a spark in time. There are adults who don't know about the Holocaust? WTF!! How does one even begin to surmise the cause of this failure in education? Not only was it only 75 years ago, but it was World War 2!

Here's a little piece of history about the slave trade and complicity on the part of Thomas Jefferson. Also, bear in mind that this wealth was passed down and the family, because of this wealth, was highly esteemed.
Think of all the money made on the backs of others--whether in procuring slaves, in selling them, or in using them as free labor. 4 minute video in article.
We, certainly, weren't/aren't taught this.

74 years ago today, the USS Indianapolis was sunk in the South Pacific by a Japanese submarine. If you want to read the book, choose 'In Harms Way'. It is excellent and under 300 pages. It's a most harrowing story.

After World War 2, the CIA decided to get into the business of mind control.
This is a 37 minute audio , or text, if you prefer reading, of an interview (NPR's Terry Gross/Fresh Air) with the author of a new book, The CIA's Quest For Mind Control: Torture, LSD, And A 'Poisoner In Chief'. Quite a story and all true. Man, the things they don't tell us.
Stop the audio after the finish of the interview.
