Independent Black Institutions in America. A Rejection of Schooling, an Opportunity for Education.
Bush, Lawson, V.
Urban Education, v32 n1 p98-116 Mar 1997
Contends that African Americans value schooling that helps them express who they are as defined by their culture and community rather than education that maintains white hegemonic control. This assertion finds support in the communal struggle to develop, erect, and sustain African American institutions, and in historical discourse concerning the consciousness that laid the foundation for their existence.
