harmful to a society to dredge up the past

Tuskegee Airmen and Miss Evers’ Boys depict painful representations of America’s racist past. What is the value if any of the historical drama? Is it more harmful to a society to dredge up the past and wallow in old wounds or do these films promote healing and understanding through reflection, discussion, and analysis?
