A conversation about "divisive concepts" legislation being passed in Texas and other states, with a focus on larger issues. What is going on? Why should all of us be concerned about it? What is particularly relevant to the work of historians? Why are they targeting history educators?

This plenary session offers a historical perspective on a major issue in national or international governance to be determined in the weeks preceding the AHA annual meeting, pending breaking events.
