As Kwame Ture (1975) once warned: 

“If you don’t know who you are, you would not know what your interests are.” A people without a sense of history are ill-equipped to visualize and plan a future because of an unclear and distorted/miseducated picture of their past. A people without the knowledge of “having done” will have grave difficulty acknowledging the motivation of “can do.”

There is a great deal of research to support that a more thorough understanding and appreciation of the contributions of African Americans, diffuses racism and white supremacy propaganda, and also promotes self-esteem and positive identity, which fosters a greater interest in learning and higher academic achievement among African American students.
