Executive Director Quoted in Washington Times Article on Introductory US History Courses (February 2024)

AHA executive director James Grossman was quoted in a Washington Times article by Sean Salai about a study of introductory US history syllabi by Arizona State University’s Center for American Institutions that found “‘identity-focused terms’ such as ‘White supremacy’ dominated their content.” “White supremacy is not an ‘identity-focused’ term,” Grossman said. “It is a term that describes a set of legal and social structures that framed the American South for decades. It was inscribed in the law and social practice.”
