The Self-Esteem and Goals of Indigent Children. Progress Report.
The general goal of this project is to develop courses of study which will be effective in increasing the self esteem, goals, and related behavior of black children who attend black schools. This project addresses itself to three interrelated programs which will be carried out by black people from the black community. The programs are: (1) Instruction in black history through art, drama and music; (2) field trips which provide interaction with black "work models" on the job; and (3) activity groups: a program of continuing interaction with a variety of "life models" who are productive members of the community. The progress report discusses a summer pilot program in black history and culture offered to elementary and junior high students and full year programs in African and Afro-American music, dance, art, and social studies instituted in three elementary schools in Pittsburgh.
