Teach about Harvey milk when civil rights history is discussed


Harvey was in inspiration for an entire community. Whether you are for or against gay rights, it is a disservice to ignore an important man in the history of gay rights. I, among many others, was appalled to learn about Harvey, not from school, but from major motion picture. I was moved by the film, but I also felt cheated by our current school system. Politics aside, Harvey Milk is a part of our history and ignoring his contributions, while praising Martin Luther King, just doesn't seem right.
