Black History Month begins tomorrow. Staff writers Michael Eastman and Debbie Prager, and photographer John Dwyier, went to Prince George's and Montgomery counties to ask public school students what they have learned in school about black American history? Linda Bullock, 10th grade, Parkdale High, Prince George's: We don't learn anything in school about black people. All we hear about is slavery. I think they ought to start teaching about black people, too. Margie Smith, 11th grade, Parkdale High, Prince George's: The teachers talk about black people but they never really give you any details. We were supposed to have a class on black studies this year, but I think they canceled it. If they do that course next year we might have a chance to learn. John Goldsmith, ninth grade, Thomas W. Pyle Junior High, Montgomery: We studied slavery and its effects on the south. We also had an assignment on Nat Turner, which I thought was very interesting. Glen Jones, 10th grade, Parkdale High, Prince George's: No, no, not at Parkdale Senior High. We study things like Russia, China, the Middle East and Iran, but I don't remember anything we learned about blacks. No, all we do is study people like George Washington and people overseas. Pete Roberts, 10th grade, Parkdale High, Prince George's: They don't teach us anything about black history. Our school is half black and half white. But since we don't have many black teachers, the teachers don't know too much about black history. Susanne Block, 12th grade, Damascus High, Montgomery: We learned about slavery in the eighth and ninth grade. We've also studied Africa. Wanda Bullock, 11th grade, Parkdale High, Prince George's: We learned something about slavery, Harriet Tubman, and the underground railroad. I think I remember something about boycotting in the south. That's about it, though. Donald Marshall, 10th grade, Parkdale High, Prince George's: I think Martin Luther King and Frederick Douglass were mentioned when I was at Thomas Johnson Junior High. There was a contest, too. The teacher would put a famous black person's picture on the bulletin board, and we'd have to figure out who it was and why they were famous. Jaime Bernardo, eighth grade, Newport Junior High, Montgomery: Yes, we talked about "Roots" and stuff like that.
