African-Centered Schooling in Theory and Practice

By Diane S. Pollard; Cheryl S. Ajirotutu | Go to book overview
1. What an Afrocentric curriculum is and what its educational and political goals and objectives are designed to address;
2. Why an Afrocentric curriculum is more than a self-esteem builder for African American students;
3. Who is needed to teach the curriculum--that is, carefully selected, well-trained, culturally conscious teachers; and finally,
4. How the curriculum is taught is as important as the content being taught.
