    Notes Toward a Process of Afro-American Education

    Thomasyne Lightfoote Wilson
    The author outlines a process of Afro-American education which would establish a cultural identity for American Blacks.

For her, the essence of an Afro-American process of education lies in a more clarified view of Black identity and folkways, and cannot be found in Western values, attitudes, and institutions.
