Believes it will curb crime

By Chinta Strausberg

Sixth District Cmdr. Fred Waller and Officer Richard Wooten will be giving away African American history books to 6, 7th and 8th grade students today, 10 a.m., Friday, February 28, 2014, at the Martha M. Ruggles Elementary School, 7831 S. Prairie, Chicago, in hopes that learning about their history will replace negative behavior with a sense of pride.

“We feel that African American history should be taught in school,” said Wooten who is also a minister. He believes if they learn about their history and all that Blacks have accomplished “a lot of crime would not be committed.”

“We’re hoping these books will help change the mindset of the students” by teaching them from whence they come. Wooten believes it will prepare them to chart out their future on a more positive note.
