Disillusioned student Samuel King relays his grievances to his teacher that Black History Month isn't taught with as much depth and with as much pride in schools. Samuel engages in a short rebuttal with his teacher, before arguing that education in school does little to satisfy his thirst for knowledge of influential people in Black history who seem to be elusive in the curriculum. Samuel names the likes of Patricia E. Bath, King Musa I of Mali, Mary Prince, Sir Trevor McDonald, Ella Baker, Septimius Severus, Fuse ODG, Jamal Edwards, Garrett Morgan and Kwame Nkrumah as individuals he could be taught about. "There seems to be a lot you haven't told us, and you shut down and hold back on the bold ones who stand against the way you're trying to mould us" Make sure to follow Samuel King and Word On The Curb on Twitter: - - @IamSamuelKing - - @WordOnTheCurbUk If you are interested in following our videos and projects, like our facebook page: - - for info and enquiries Music - "Touching Moments Three - Deeper" Kevin MacLeod ( Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 and "Reawakening" Kevin MacLeod ( Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 - Produced and Directed by Word On The Curb - Assistant Producer Ify Osi Starring Samuel King Samuel Katrina Smith Jackson Teacher Malakai Sargeant Javier Garcia Theresa Lola Stephanie Riley Sami Missous Dami Fajobi Elliot Hay Jardon Virgo Rose Winter Theresa Ita Anas Himedan Ziko Thompson Camera Ify Osi FizzYcaL
