Including African-American Values in Educational Discourse: Toward a Multicultural Public Philosophy.
Pongo, Kodzo Tita
Thresholds in Education, v22 n3-4 p2-6 Aug-Nov 1995
Inspired by W. E. B. Du Bois and Walter Lippmann, this article discusses the development of African American values and their impact on African American attitudes toward education. Identifiable black American values include racial thinking (Afrocentrism), conceptions of social and economic justice, commitment to community, and passion for religion. Multicultural literacy must undergird a new public philosophy. (MLH)
