Culture of the African American children should be taught as soon as kids are old enough to learn it. They should be taught other cultures and their own culture. Many African Americans families today do not know where to begin when it comes to teaching their children about the culture of African Americans.
The culture of African American Children should be taught in their homes and should not be the responsibility of the schools. I have always asked the question, “why the culture of African American children should be taught in schools?” People all over the world are searching for their identity. There are many different festivals that are held throughout the year that offer a rich variety of presentations that will teach the culture to African American children. Many of these include cultural and traditional dances, music, singing and much more. If you are looking for a way to start teaching your children about their African Culture why not find out when and where these festivals are held and attend with your family.
In my book, The Marks Left Behind, there are many stories that children can learn about past slavery. The main objective of many of these stories found in the Marks Left Behind is to promote better international and interracial understanding. Many have expressed the view that Africa is the foundation of their ethnic and cultural identity. You could also try museums, and the library for additional information and resources. Either way, it is important that the Culture of the African American Children be learned.
