From Inclusion to Interpretation: Teaching Afro-American History in the 1980s.
Harris, Robert L., Jr.
Social Studies, v74 n1 p25-28 Jan-Feb 1983
Textbooks treat Afro-American history with a general unevenness, with little attention to Afro-American thoughts and activities. A theme that runs consistently throughout American history is the exclusion of Afro-Americans from the concept of American "people." There should be a two-pronged approach to examining this theme in the classroom. (AM)
