Sample text

We are talking here about developing a system of practice that cuts against the grain of contemporary thinking on teaching, learning, schooling, and Black achievement. The history of African Americans and their struggle for history is an important background for this thinking because, in a profound sense, the heritage of African Americans already cuts against this grain of the contemporary educational schooling practices in America that have failed its populations of African American children in urban communities.

In particular, the work of James Comer applies the ecological theory to the development of systems of practice in schools to improve the learning and development of African American children in underresourced communities. Also relevant is the work of John Ogbu and Signithia Fordham (Fordham & Ogbu, 1986), who apply ecological theory as an explanation of Black underachievement and racial identity development. Smaller still is the body of research literature that xxx AFRICAN-CENTERED PEDAGOGY theorizes achievement on the cultural symbolic level of development and the examination of systems and institutions in the historical context of African American experience.

W. E. B. DuBois, Carter Woodson, Mary McCleod Bethune, and Fredrick Douglass all affirmed the INTRODUCTION xxxv idea that connected pedagogy for African American children must be (as it has been for centuries) a fundamentally subversive activity with respect to the cultural values of education mainstream America. This subversion is not merely contestation; it is the creation of a figured world based on the intellectual and cultural heritage of African Americans. Accomplished teachers of African American children understand education viewed as a broader process than schooling—as a total process of promoting the intellectual, spiritual, ethical, and social development of young people, and the stewarding them into capable, caring, and character-rich adults.
