TEACHING NEGRO CULTURE IN HIGH SCHOOLS - IS IT WORTHWHILE.
PICKENS, WILLIAM G.
CULTURAL TRAINING IS BASICALLY IMPORTANT TO GOOD SOCIAL AND EDUCATIONAL ADJUSTMENT. THE NEGRO HAS BEEN DEPRIVED OF HIS OWN CULTURAL HERITAGE, AND HIS BACKGROUND HAS BEEN OMITTED AND DISTORTED BY THE WHITE SOCIETY. CONSEQUENTLY, THE NEGROES' SELF-ESTEEM HAS BEEN LOWERED WHILE WHITES HAVE ACCRUED AN UNFOUNDED SENSE OF SUPERIORITY. BOTH OF THESE CONDITIONS ARE DAMAGING TO THE MENTAL HEALTH OF THE COUNTRY. CURRICULUM CHANGES SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED WHICH SIMPLY TEACH THE TRUTH. TEACHERS OF BOTH RACES MUST STRIVE NOT TO STEREOTYPE GROUPS. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN THE "JOURNAL OF NEGRO EDUCATION," VOLUME 39, NUMBER 2, SPRING 1965.
