The Mediating Potential of Multiculturalism.
French, Peter L.
Liberal Education, v78 n2 p36-40 Mar-Apr 1992
The controversy over Afrocentrism in higher education institutions is discussed as an example of how multicultural norms can be used to resolve contentious issues. The paper concludes that the capstone of multicultural awareness programs should incorporate themes on tolerance, conflict resolution, uses of emotion, consensus building, stress reduction, and negotiating the nuances of culture.
