This video recording consists of a panel discussion held December 8, 1990 at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in New York City, New York. The panel discussion focuses on the updating of curriculum to raise achievement levels among students from minority groups. The panel speakers were S. B. "Buddy" Johnson, N.S. Ruis, and Asa G. Hilliard, III. In Dr. Hilliard's presentation, he highlights the successes of educators, such as Abdulalim Shabazz in increasing achievement levels among African American mathematics students. Dr. Hilliard also argues for both improved technical and cultural considerations for educating African Americans. He asserts that no one can master the technical considerations of education if they are socialized into hatred or ignorance toward their own culture.
