Rt. Rev. Matthew Heyd and Dr. Catherine Meeks on Florida’s Attempt to Rewrite History

Jul 28, 2023

“Florida’s 2023 history curriculum for middle school students will incorrectly and absurdly teach that “slaves developed skills that could be used for personal benefit.” This is beyond unacceptable and an insult to all Americans! As children of God, it is part of our spiritual formation to openly and fervently speak out against this egregious attack to twist and manipulate the history of enslaved African Americans.” -Dr. Catherine Meeks

Below, The Absalom Jones Episcopal Center for Racial Healing’s Board Chair, The Rt. Rev. Matt Heyd, and Executive Director, Dr. Catherine Meeks discuss this attempt to change American History.
