Educating Black Boys towards Excellence and Liberation: An African-centered and Buddhist Approach is a holistic approach to education that empowers educators to move beyond both internal and external limitations and find a true means to advance the lives of black boys in America, a group who have been historically and collectively held back from reaching their immense potential. Educating Black Boys toward Excellence and Liberation requires educators to rethink their approach to education, and actively challenge curriculum and pedagogy that promotes white supremacy and oppression. It challenges educators to transform education into a system that empowers black boys and all children to destroy systems of oppression and develop systems based upon justice, equity, compassion and wisdom-- systems that truly value life. From an African-centered approach, educators are summoned to glean and share profound wisdom that comes out of African history and culture, and institute a pedagogy of self-determination. From a Buddhist approach, educators are empowered to move beyond a limited intellectual approach to pedagogy, and embrace a whole-being transformative approach, called human revolution.
