Re: History ~ A Working Definition
In Response To: History ~ A Working Definition ()

The definition/quote I like is as follows:

"History is the clock that people use to tell their political and cultural time of day. It is also a compass that people use to find themselves on the map of human geography. The role of history is to tell a people what they have been, and where they have been, what they are and where they are. The most important role that history plays is that it has the function of telling a people where they still must go and what they still must be."
-- Dr. John Henrik Clarke, African Historian.
