WHY IS HISTORY IMPORTANT?
I believe history is important because the things that came before have led us to where we are now. To understand ourselves, our world, our mistakes and our opportunities to do better, we must begin the search with understanding our past. I will try on this page to make a case for why history is important.
“Sometimes history takes things into its own hands.”
- Thurgood Marshall
U.S. Supreme Court Justice (1908-1993)
