Supplemental Articles, Videos, and Websites

This is only a partial listing of materials available online and offline.  Please feel free to add an article, video, website, or other helpful information related to this post in the comments below.  History has many layers, though not all are acknowledged or explored.  By sharing these stories, I hope to encourage a more nuanced approach to and active engagement with the human tale.

Book Excerpts

Most of the following book excerpts came from Amazon’s “Look Inside” feature on its website.  I do recommend checking out your local public library system’s ebook catalog for sample chapters.
