Discussion Of Discover Reflection

I came to understand the secrets of discrimination where even those who people thought were most discriminated against, for instance African Americans, discriminated against others when they had the chance. The voice of my mother communicated things not captured by my transcript such as tones, emotions, and face expressions. Oral history tells us more about meanings than events because the meaning of the oral history tells us more about the actually event experienced than just telling the event would. Analyzing my mother’s interpretation of her story made me feel as though I understood it like I was there. Historians should embrace their role in history making as well as make an effort to stay as much as possible behind the scenes presenting facts because both versions are important in different ways.
