HOUSTON — A mother from Houston singlehandedly convinced a major publisher to change one of its textbooks.
The book “World Geography” refers to African slaves as “workers” and “immigrants.”
Roni Dean-Burren posted a Facebook message that said the book whitewashes the role of slavery in building America.
Publisher McGraw-Hill got the message. It’ll change the book to refer to the slave trade as a “forced migration” and “slave labor.”
