AHA executive director James Grossman was featured in a WFSU Public Media radio segment and article by Valerie Crowder about the AHA’s statement opposing Florida’s controversial higher education bill, HB 999. The proposed bill would severely restrict the ability of educators and students in public universities to teach, discuss, and learn about topics such as racism and intersectionality.  “It is not possible to teach American history without racism and the legacy of slavery being a central concept,” Grossman said. “Some people would make it the central concept, some would not, but it’s not possible.”
