Actually, every living soul lives their life in history. The quote just reiterates it and make the most sense. You asked why is it necessary, to understand why they need to know. Because every time most people see or feel some thing that is wrong, some of them will refer to slavery which is a major part of history as people of color, but do not know all the details about it. It is not about being unaware, keeping it from the kids until they are old enough and being angry all the time. It is about awareness and being informed. Other races teach their children from the moment they can comprehend, we did not have that opportunity at one time, now we do. It should not be wasted. This is why some people feel lost, because they want to feel that ancient connection to another land of origin.
