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 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.
