The skill of understanding definitions in detail, and applying them logically, is another crucial part of Adult citizenship responsibility which is taught very well by mathematics (too bad Proofs were no longer a standard part of geometry classes after my middle school classes back in the early 1980s) and is thus a key part of any democracy.
Understanding similarity, evidence, and how to draw logical conclusions from primary or proofed secondary sources is also a crucial part of being an Adult in a democratic society.
Mathematics helps with that.

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.
Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.
