Text for new course officially set

The text for the new African/African-American history course to be taught in Philadelphia public schools starting this fall (see original story here and more discussion here) has now been chosen. It's adapted from one sometimes used in college courses (including occasionally at Temple and Swarthmore), and contains material that students often find surprising. Scroll to the bottom of the story to find a few excerpted facts that you probably didn't know yourself.
