Reply to "The Mis-Education of Americans on Black History"

I know this is a discussion board and all....But this SAME topic was discussed decades ago. If you think I'm lying, then go check my archives.

 

The SAME result came about: A couple members expressed their knowledge of unadulterated, unfettered black history. Whoopty doo. People get mad at whitey and then move on to the next topic--problem deferred.

 

This is the equivalent of screaming the theory of relativity into a storm drain. Nothing but echoes--Nothing gets done. If you really want to effect change, then enroll in an alternative ed program in art education. Get yourself a masters degree in art education. Get hired to teach art somewhere, then create your own Discipline Based Art Education (DBAE)-focused curriculum. 

 

You teach black history through art. Some of the most famous artists that ever existed i.e. Pablo Picasso, were influenced by utilitarian art from Africa. Many influential artists throughout the last century were black. Infuse your art curriculum with black history from an artistic, historic, academic, cultural and governmental perspective.

 

Come back to AA.org in about 4 or 5 years and let us know how you enlightened the minds of our inner city youth through art. If you're already a certified educator in an inner city school, then infuse your academic subject with black history through art.

 

Otherwise, you're just wasting time posturing and posing for a bunch of strangers on an internet discussion board.
