The need to prepare young people to function in a diverse society and world is becoming more important. Both formal and nonformal education programs are adding diversity-related topics to their curricula. This 82-page guide is designed to encourage youth 10 years old and older to develop an understanding of African American culture and its importance in U.S. society; learn about the individual contributions of selected African Americans to American history; reflect on their own culture and the similarities and differences among cultures; and develop life skills that give them the opportunity to value diversity, think critically, process information, learn to learn, practice creativity, complete a project or task, and more.
