1/ Who invented the lightbulb?
History is the study of the past. What is studied in history is carefully chosen and interpreted, and then it is told. If this is the first year you have heard of Juneteenth-congratulations, you are experiencing first hand how history actually works
2/ If you have heard of Juneteenth in school, that is because your teacher probably learned of it on his or her own, because it is not in textbooks or is it taught outside of specialized college classes. And this is on purpose. History is about power and control.
3/ Case in point: Thomas Edison. Most of us probably have a view of Thomas Edison as a workaholic, toiling away in his lab at all hours of the night. After all, he invented the lightbulb and so many other things, right?

Not quite.
