Infusion of Afrocentric Content into the School Curriculum: Toward an Effective Movement.
Giddings, Geoffrey Jahwara
Journal of Black Studies, v31 n4 p462-82 Mar 2001
Demonstrates how intellectual arguments to infuse Afrocentric content into the school curriculum consist mainly of efforts to replace a pervasive Eurocentric hegemony in the education of African Americans, noting the need to seriously analyze the internal and external problems this movement faces. Describes historical developments, a model for analysis, Afrocentric curriculum reform in Philadelphia, and important structural factors. (SM)
