The Importance of an Afrocentric, Multicultural Curriculum.
Vann, Kimberly R.; Kunjufu, Jawanza
Phi Delta Kappan, v74 n6 p490-91 Feb 1993
A strictly Eurocentric perspective will not properly prepare students for a successful future in a multicultural world. Because students internalize what they are taught, schools profoundly affect children's confidence and self-esteem. An Afrocentric, multicultural curriculum would benefit both white and African-American students, because both would learn that all cultures have made outstanding contributions. (MLH)
