Bridging the Communication Gap between Afro-Latino and African American Individuals: An Interdisciplinary Curriculum Initiative
Vargas, Manuel P.; Kuhl, Paul E.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v7 n4 p336-345 2008
This article describes a curriculum initiative intended to lay the foundational knowledge for a dialogue between Afro-Latinos and African Americans living in the United States. Afro-Latinos trace their roots to Africa and Latin America; although their physical characteristics are similar to those of African descent, their ethnic backgrounds differ. This initiative targets the preservice teacher who represents the best hope to start such dialogue. Furthermore, the article recommends appropriate instructional materials.
