A War On History: Brian Kilmeade Defends America’s Imperfect Path For Racial Equality – Ask Dr. Drew
Over 150 Confederate monuments have been torn down across America. Are the removers erasing history, or dismantling statues of treasonous rebels? In his latest book “Teddy and Booker T.: How Two American Icons Blazed a Path for Racial Equality” Brian Kilmeade explores the United States’ imperfect history of racial equality by chronicling the friendship between Booker T. Washington and President Teddy Rosevelt.
“Booker T. Washington is somebody who was born a slave until he was nine years old. He looked up to Frederick Douglass,” Kilmeade told Barrett News. “Don’t run from [history]. Understand it. Don’t pull someone’s statue down. Understand what they did to get that statue. Understand they weren’t perfect and understand that nobody is.”
