You can't wrap your head around history without maps--the problem is maps can be difficult tools to use. That's why we're working on designing interactive maps that will make learning Uncolonial *Geography* even easier.
Why are these maps important? Maps can tell you exactly where colonial violence was located or slaves were imported, and therefore maps shows you "the scene of the crime." We need this as Uncolonial Historians so as to "prosecute" the defense. From demanding reparations to demanding the return of Indigenous lands, maps will be a crucial part of the process.
