I remember as a child during the 60s, the numbr of community based, Black history classes, some folks doing it from thier homes, and hiring young college students, some done at community centers , where the noted Black scholars of the time were more then happy to educate Black children, and even Dr John Henrik Clarke was on network television for months each day, presenting a college level course in Africna history. Now after the demise and attacks on the curriculum of inclusion, championed by State Regent Adelaide Sanford, Dr Leonard Jeffries and Professor Smalls, HBCUs no longer require Black studies and it has been reduced to an ellective. Now, with the legislature in Arizona attacking black studies and the probability of this replicating, with the surge for state rights, and with the corporate take over of the school system , through the charter school system, what future will there be for Black studies on the grade school, junior high and high school level, particularly at a culturaly void, time in the history of the African American community, and with so many parents and children having no concept or idea of the importance of a knowledge of self, and the power and self esteem it provides ????
