Awakening the Natural Genius of Black Children

Awakening-the-natural-genius-of-Black-childrenAfrikan children are naturally precocious and gifted. They begin life with a “natural head start.” However, their natural genius it too frequently underdeveloped and misdirected by (1)the fact that the racist and he imperialist status quo politically mandates their intellectual under-achievement and social mal-adaptiveness; (2) belief in the myth that intelligence is fixed at birth and that Afrikans are innately less intelligent than Europeans; (3) a lack of knowledge of their positively unique developmental psychology; (4) a lack of confidence in their ability to equal or surpass the intellectual performance of any other ethnic group; (5) the general lack of infant and early childhood educational experiences which stimulate, sustain and actualize their abundant human potential.

Awakening the Natural Genius of Black Children by Amos Wilson provides effective means by which these political and social maladies may be fully remedied.
