Florence F. Colby, 81, of Pond Hill Road, Lunenburg, Vt., died Sunday, Sept. 26, 2021, at the Coos County Nursing Home in Berlin, N.H. She was born Jan. 2, 1940, in Lunenburg, the daughter of Ovila and Mabel (Blood) Roy and graduated from Concord High School.

As a former history teacher, I was struck by Derby Representative Brian Smith’s statements in a supposed “critical race theory” forum the other day in Brighton. Smith, when asked how race should be discussed in schools, responded, “I don’t think they [the teachers] need to talk about race in the classroom, unless it comes up.” He then gave the example of a white student calling a black student the “n-word.”. This, Smith asserted, was an appropriate time to discuss race, and I don’t disagree. An incident like that would absolutely be a critical time to discuss racial prejudice. But it should not be the only time. How can you discuss the harm and power of that offensive word without discussing its history? How can we understand the reasons for this word’s endurance if we don’t name when and why this epithet came into common usage? I could never support any movement that argues that we’re better off having less information and not more.
