James W. Loewen (1942-2021)

We mourn the loss of our friend and colleague and remain committed to the work he began.

Mississippi Conflict & Change book cover

Loewen recounted in print the “aha experience” – really an “Oh no! experience” – at Tougaloo College that led to his decision to create a new textbook for Mississippi’s required ninth-grade course in Mississippi History. (For another account, see Teaching What Really Happened, 2-7.)
