The students' demand reveals that they lack understanding of the study history. History is not a matter of "narratives." History is a matter of evidence, documentation and meticulous collection and presentation of the facts of what happened in the past. The narrative has to be supported by evidence or it is not history. If there are material facts that are left out of the school's textbooks, that is a legitimate subject of criticism. Prejudiced presentation of the facts is also. But competing narrative is not history without evidence. Pure narrative does have its honored place in the liberal arts, however. It is called "fiction" and can be quite powerful.
