    depriving people of their history and their ethnicity is tantgamount to extinguishing that culture.


    people must own their narrative.

    Without a past their is no future. I am a product of CVHS and I was not prepared for the culture shock experience waiting for me when I left for the university. We need to learn our own people’s history and those of other cultures in order to strive in our diverse society. Ethnic studies is a tool which can be used to empower our youth to recognize they have the ability to make a difference in our world.
