To the Editor:

How can high school kids know about black history, when the schools in the North Country don’t teach black history? City schools teach all history, no matter what race. Here is one question. Half the population of which continent is under the age of 15?

1. Africa, 2. Europe, 3. South Africa. The answer is Africa.

One more question. Who was the first African American female to enlist in the army? Cathay Williams.
