Man it is amazing how so many of us know so very little about the concept 'Afrocentric'! Afrocentric means Afrikan-centered, which means putting Afrika and Afrikan people at the center of everything that touches our lives. With the very first question being is this beneficial or detrimental too Afrika and Afrikan people? Will it guarantee our survival and development as a people? How can we get our 'collective self esteem back' when most of us don't even know who we are, much less where we are! An Afrikan-centered education will teach us that! And not just the children, but a whole lot of adults need this education also!!!I am fine with the destruction of public schools. As black folk integration into that system was one of the worst mistakes we ever made. As far as Afrocentric education goes, that ship has sailed. We must first do simple steps like getting our collective self esteem back. Because if we do not have that, then whatever positive things we are taught as a people will simply be rejected.
