Who Owns History? (Teaching and Learning about Cultural Diversity).
Miller, Howard M.
Reading Teacher, v52 n1 p76-78 Sep 1998
Notes that history is always based on someone's vision of truth, expressed through a process of distillation, selection, inclusion, exclusion, reorganization, and prioritizing. Argues that the shorthand, watered-down, or warped history of mainstream textbooks regarding cultural diversity should be supplemented with original documents, fiction, and the voices of real people telling their own stories.
