Learn about how the United States started human experiments that injected LSD into participants and monitored the effects in an attempt to weaponize these drugs against the Soviets.
Welcome back everyone! Today, we have a story time history lesson that will prove to you all just how crazy U.S. history actually was. Where are we starting our story?

happy pride month!
First and foremost, happy pride month everyone! June was chosen as pride month for the LGBTQ+ community in honor of the Stonewall Riots that occurred in June of 1969. So, in June communities come together to celebrate the achievements, importance, and value of the LGBTQ+ community everywhere throughout the world. So, since 1969, you’d think we made significant progress and we have, but we still have much to accomplish in terms of overall equality for people in the United States. We face several challenges and wins, one of which came from our Supreme Court this last week in the groundbreaking 6-3 decision that made discrimination against LGBTQ+ workers illegal.
Learn about the ways in which the Constitution was created from our previous independence documents and experiences under the English Crown!
For many of us, we know the Constitution as being the ground breaking, original, transformative document that made America the real deal! Right? Well, it’s actually a bit more tricky than that. Our Constitution is actually the compilation of several ideas from previous documents. Essentially, our Founding Fathers cut pieces from the Magna Carta, English Bill of Rights of 1689, the Declaration of Independence, and the Articles of Confederation in order to construct the document we see today. I know what you’re thinking: James Madison is a plagiarist? *Gasp*. Well, let’s take a look and you can decide.
Since the beginning of time, sexual violence against women (and men) has been a dominant force of the culture in the United States. While April is official sexual assault awareness month, there is no restrictions on being open to awareness discussions in the months prior to and after April. So, we have this blog post!
This blog includes the stories of eight black individuals who were killed at the hands of white cops, who still have not been granted justice. It is important to note here that the stories below are exemplary and not exhaustive. There is no way for us to know the full extent of policy brutality or race-based crimes because they are rarely talked about. Our fight for equality is for the stories we know, as much as it is for those we don’t.
As many of you already know, George Floyd, an unarmed, cooperative, black man was killed by four police officers on May 25, 2020. These officers obstructed Floyd’s breathing for nearly nine minutes until he passed away.
