THE ROLE OF THE NEGRO IN AMERICA'S STORY, BOOK I. AFRICA, PAST AND PRESENT.
ANDERSON, MARY; AND OTHERS
A SUPPLEMENT TO THE PRESENT COURSE IN U.S. HISTORY AT THE 5TH GRADE LEVEL IS PRESENTED. REASONS FOR WRITING THIS GUIDE INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING--(1) THE CONTRIBUTION AND HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN NEGRO ARE NOT COVERED ADEQUATELY IN TEXTBOOKS AND OTHER INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, (2) THIS ERROR OF OMISSION IS SOMETIMES AGGRAVATED BY ERRORS OF OMISSION WHICH PERPETUATE UNFORTUNATE STEREOTYPING, (3) THERE IS A LACK OF INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS ON THE NEGRO, (4) KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF NEGROES TO AMERICAN LIFE HELPS WHITE CHILDREN UNDERSTAND THEM BETTER, AND (5) SINCE DIVERSITY IS PART OF OUR COUNTRY'S STRENGTH AND BECAUSE PRIDE AS AN AMERICAN CAN BE REINFORCED BY PRIDE IN ONE'S OWN PARTICULAR CULTURE, NEGRO CHILDREN SHOULD KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT THEIR OWN BACKGROUND AND CONTRIBUTIONS. THE AREAS COVERED ARE--(1) AFRICA, INCLUDING ITS PEOPLES, LANGUAGE, GOVERNMENT, EDUCATION AND HISTORY, (2) AFRICAN ARTS INCLUDING STORIES, POEMS, SONGS AND GAMES, (3) A DISCUSSION OF WEST AFRICA INCLUDING ITS LANGUAGE, FOODS, GAMES AND CRAFTS, AND (4) A DISCUSSION OF LIBERIA INCLUDING ITS LANGUAGE AND FOODS.
