Default The Guilford Four

If you reside in Ireland or England you know the story of the Guilford Four . In America it is almost never discussed .That incident in my opinion should appear in our history books so that people know about the injustice .

Default It belongs in the past

Hi Laker

Why just the Guildford 4?? Why not the Birmingham 6??

At least the story of the Guildford 4 was made into a film.

The stories belong in the past.

Annie

I had no idea who or what they were, so I Googled it.

Questions Why bring it up?

Why should it be in our History books?

Hi Annie it's good to hear from you. We take things one day at a time. How are you?

Laker's Fan, I think I know why you brought these people up, but want to wait and see what you say.

I believe that LF brought out this issue because he is against injustice.

In 1964 I was a student member if C.O.R.E. I ,along with several other students went south of NYC to fight for injustice for Americans being denied their civil rights because of their skin color .Does everyone here know that Washington DC was segregated at the time ? This is not discussed in history classes in 2013 in schools .
The story of the Guilford Four is totally absent from the school curriculum in the US.

I read up on C.O.R.E as I was to young to know during the time it was in operation. It sounds like it was a very dangerous thing to do.

What I don't understand is why bring up a British group that was wrongly accused. Can you please explain?

One Irish woman age 17 and 3 Irish men ages 21-25 spent 15 years in a British prision for a crime they did not commit .One of the 4 later married Courtney Kennedy daughter of Robert.

Why did I bring this up ? I would think that you as an educator should know .
This is a less benign subject than 90% of the ones on the debate thread.
