.. Liberation is impossible if we fail to see ourselves in more positive terms. For without a change of vision, we are slaves to the oppressor’s ideas and values –ideas and values that finally attack the very core of our existence. Therefore, we must see the world in terms of our own realities.”Larry Neal, “Black Art and Black Liberation,” 1969

BEST DEFINITION OF AFRICAN CENTERED EDUCATION MY RESEARCH HAS TURNED UP:
African Centered Education is a system of sequentially planned educational opportunities provided for African heritage children, youth and young adults to develop the necessary and required skills to participate in the global marketplace with specific interest on the upliftment and empowerment of their African-American communities and the total development and growth of the African continent.
Dr. E. Curtis Alexander
Professor Jacob H. Carruthers /Jedi Shemsu Jehewty
“The African centered education campaign is related to the chronic failure of the education system to provide equal educational results and opportunities for African Americans.
(February 15, 1930 – January 4, 2004)

The recent Africana Studies Movement grew out of the 1960s/70s Black Power Movement
For those who would like to get deeper into RBG Street Scholars Think Tank Dr.Carruthers’ essay on Africentric Education is highly recommended as it puts you smack dab into the middle of our scholarly education cipher and discourse. Professor Jacob H. Carruthers (RIU) was a founding director of the Association for the Study of Classical African Civilizations (ASCAC) and a member of its national board of directors. He is a founding member of both the Kemetic Institute of Chicago and the Temple of the African Community of Chicago. He was also the acting director of the Center for Inner City Studies, Northeastern Illinois University, where he also served as a professor. He is the author of Science and Oppression, The Irritated Genie, and Mdw Ntr Divine Speech.
The Connection The current day Africentric-education movement, where Dr. Carruthers is one of our foremost authorities, is an outgrowth of the 1960s Black Studies Movement that we will be studying in the body of this curriculum.

Improving Schools for African American Students: A Reader for Educational Leaders provides education leaders with access to critical ideas, research, and knowledge across a broad range of educational issues that affect the successful schooling of African American children and youth. The articles that make up this book discuss generic education issues such as policy reform, the importance of high-quality teaching, and the improvement of schools from the perspective of the academic achievement of African American students. They explore the need to identify and redress policies and practices that hinder African American student achievement. They discuss effective teacher training programs, both pre-service and in-service, that focus on the academic and the ethical, social, political, and cultural dimensions of teaching African American students. These articles explore educational programs that build on the strengths that African American students bring to school, as well as how to create these programs in a wide variety of school settings, ranging from schools that serve predominantly African American students to schools in which African American students are a small percentage of the total school population… Read the full document in the school
