I am a retired Chicago Public Schools Arts Educator that had No Child Left Behind Certification. I currently teach at the Harold Washington College along with a history of being a Visiting Artist at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  I see how orthodox most Black professional educators continue to be. Never thinking of being wiling to expose students to indie source materials.  Thus limiting lessons, to the non-Black owned and published resources, such as most of that per the "Harlem Renaissance".  Educators should end their self-imposed boycott of indie Black materials and expand the learning potential of students and practices.

I once lost a job for refusing to teach the Harlem Renaissance, that was owned and engineered by non-Blacks, instead I taught Bronzeville/Black Chicago, which was about black Money, creativity and efforts in a true indie nexus.  Most school systems are in hock to provide wicked profits to non-Black owned publishers....at all costs. Seems most Black Educators, School Administrators and such are still in service to them.

The Clark Doll Experiment(1939) was an experiment done by Dr Kenneth Clark and his wife Mamie where they asked black children to choose between a black doll and a white doll. The dolls were the same except for their skin colour but most thought the white doll was nicer.

In 1954 in Brown v Board of Education the experiment helped to persuade the American Supreme Court that “separate but equal” schools for blacks and whites were anything but equal in practice and therefore against the law. It was the beginning of the end of Jim Crow.

In the experiment Clark showed black children between the ages of six and ninetwo dolls, one white and one black, and then asked these questions in this order:

  • “Show me the doll that you like best or that you’d like to play with,”
  • “Show me the doll that is the ‘nice’ doll,”
  • “Show me the doll that looks ‘bad’,”
  • “Give me the doll that looks like a white child,”
  • “Give me the doll that looks like a coloured child,”
  • “Give me the doll that looks like a Negro child,”
  • “Give me the doll that looks like you.”

“Negro” and “coloured” were both common words for blacks before the 1960s.

The last question was the worst since by that point most black children had picked the black doll as the bad one. In 1950 44% said the white doll looked like them! In past tests, however, many children would refuse to pick either doll or just start crying and run away.

The challenge is to get more Black educators to bring the indie Black Age product into the classroom. They already bring Manga, along with other mainstream products to provide students with reading material.  But they avoid selecting fine and appropriate Black Age materials.

The "BLACK AGE XVIII" group exhibition was extended until Dec. 31st for educators and per popular demand!

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
