Dear Texas Sign-On Letter: African American Studies for Texas Schools
Dear Supporter,

On November 13, the Texas State Board of Education will hear public testimonies for an African American Studies Innovative Course that is currently being considered for inclusion in the state TEKS Catalogue for Social Studies and Ethnic Studies, which means that the course will be more easily available to districts state-wide.

The hearing will take place on November 13th as early as 9 am and the sign-up period will open from November 8th at 9 am to November 12 at 5 pm. For more instructions on how to sign up for the hearing, click here:

Dear Members of the Texas State Board of Education:

The individuals and entities signed below would like to register our strong support for adopting a state-wide African American Studies course for the Texas Social Studies and Ethnic Studies catalog as quickly as possible, while ensuring that the course represents the full range and complexity of African American experience, including histories of slavery and subjugation as well as cultural and historical contributions before and after slavery.

A broad range of empirical and theoretical studies have shown that Ethnic Studies courses help to increase attendance, grade-point averages, and graduation rates for all students, but in particular, students who have been traditionally marginalized or labeled as "at-risk." These gains are not limited to the humanities and social sciences but also include performance in math and science classes (Penner and Dee 2016). In addition, these outcomes increase as students take more ethnic studies classes (Cabrera, Milam, Jaquette, and Marx 2013). Reviews of the Ethnic Studies literature have shown that students from majority populations stand to learn the most from Ethnic Studies courses since they are less likely to be exposed to issues of racial diversity in their everyday lives. Finally, students find power in Ethnic Studies courses not just when studying the positive contributions of their ethnic group, but also when getting a fuller understanding of the processes that have historically created racial inequality in the United States (Sleeter 2011). This knowledge helps to dispell cultural assumptions about racial inferiority that often bombard our youth and allows them to shift from individual self-blame to transformational self-efficacy in their educational studies (Solorzano & Bernal 2001).

While it is often tempting to emphasize the positive historical contributions of African Americans when designing course standards for African American Studies, it is important to also acknowledge and examine the social, cultural, economic, and political impact that the African slave trade had on American society. The point of designing curriculum for the teaching of slavery, however, is not to assign blame, but rather to educate students about one of the most important events of our nation’s history and how it informs our understanding of the American value of equity, equality, and the long struggle for freedom.

Here, we fear, that it may become tempting to make the teaching of slavery more “palatable” for some students and educators by softening the experience of slavery (in the past Texas textbooks have called African slaves "immigrant workers") or by emphasizing African culpability (e.g., the idea that Africans “owned” slaves and were complicit in European slavery). While it is true that there were Africans who were involved in the slave trade, it is misguided to make this a point of emphasis. As a point of comparison, historians have documented that there were Jewish collaborators in the Holocaust and Native American collaborators in their genocide; however, the teaching of these histories does not focus on the collaborators. To emphasize the role of internal collaborators in the oppression of their own people is a distortion and misrepresentation of history.

A proper analysis and description of African American experiences allows students to make concrete connections between the historical experiences of African Americans and the issues and challenges that face African American communities in the 21st century. By examing a broad range of African American history, students will be able to link the African slave trade with the Black Codes, Jim Crow, and the post-civil rights issues faced today.

In adopting this course, it is critical that the Texas State Board of Education develop and support professional development programs for districts and teachers as well as create course credit incentives for students to fully value and take the course. Professional development programs should include exposing teachers to the diverse authors and literatures that form part of the African American Studies experience, as well as the pedagogical advancements that have aided successful applications of Ethnic Studies in other states and districts: mainly, the creation of authentic care between students and teachers, the valuing of student and community knowledge, the practice of connecting course content to students’ everyday lives. Students across the state are hungry to take Ethnic Studies courses, but they also need to know that the time they will spend in these classes will be valued and rewarded with a core Social Studies credit.

By making African American Studies, as well as other Ethnic Studies courses, a central part of the Texas Social Studies catalog, the State of Texas will take a strong step toward creating the conditions needed to truly unlock the educational potential of all Texas students.
