Awakening the Natural Genius of Black Children
Afrikan children are naturally precocious and gifted. They begin life with a "natural head start". However, their natural genius is too frequently underdeveloped and misdirected. In this volume, the author surveys the daily routines, child-rearing practices, parent-child interactions, games and play materials, parent-training and pre-school programs which have made demonstrably outstanding and lasting differences in the intellectual, academic and social performance of Black children.
