Facilitating African Identity Development: Critical Literacy Books for African College Students.
Myrick, Cecilia J.
Journal of Black Studies, v32 n4 p375-88 Mar 2002
Investigated African-descent college students' perspectives toward their African identity and how students with different perspectives reacted to immersion into an African-centered literacy curriculum. Five prevailing perspectives emerged: indifferent, resentful, hostile, accepting, and African centered (only one student was African centered). Certain books were more appropriate for students at certain points in their African identity development. (Contains references.) (SM)
