Education By For and About African Americans: A Profile of Several Black Community Schools.
Daniels, Deborah, Ed.
The research for this booklet, which was conducted under the label of "The Black Community Schools' Project," had as its main purpose the production of a work which would describe some of the efforts being made by blacks in the area of educating children. The focus is on some of the independent black institutions on the pre-school through junior college level in this country. This booklet is designed to provide some basic information on the schools' backgrounds and their present operations, including information on achievement of academic goals as each school has defined them. Two pre-schools and kindergartens are reported on; Centers for New Horizons, Inc., and Kiddie Kollege Nursery School and Kindergarten. One pre-school/elementary school is reported on, The Get It Together School; one elementary school, New School for Children, Inc.; one elementary/Jr. High School, Highland Park Free School; one pre-school/secondary school, Nairobi Day and High Schools, Incorporated; one elementary/secondary schools, United Block Association; one secondary school, Harlem Preparatory School; and, one junior college, Nairobi College. These schools were intended to represent institutions both from a broad geographic range and from a broad range of philosophies concerning the proper education of black children. (Author/JM)
