One Florida Man believes teaching African American Kids about the accomplishments and history of Africans is a key to success…and he is walking up the east coast to prove it.
News Three’s Alice Massimi joined him today to talk about African Centered Teaching and whether it can solve some of our problems. CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE VIDEO.
His back aches and his feet hurt… but Amefika Geuka continues…
“We feel the way to change that is to put a focus on education of those children being educated from their own perspective,” explains Geuka.
Which is why he and two others founded the Joseph Littles - NGUZO SABA Charter School in Florida.
For example, while the history books say the Egyptians built the pyramids they fail to mention Egypt is in Africa and the Nile where civilization is said to be born is in Africa.
“In fact if they knew their history they would be too proud to engage in certain things,” he points out.
So step by step Geuka hopes to replace negative with positive and put children on the same course.
