At my HS, we had a selection of books to choose from and each  was different for every classroom

But to my knowledge, there was no book with a Black author that was required reading

Go to siriustimes.com. They have a library full of African American lectures that teach the REAL truth about our history. You cannot find these videos anywhere else. You can find topics ranging from education, metaphysics, diet, and history.

off the top of my head:

a raisin in the sun 
black boy <-- my teacher actually assigned it and reviewed it with me one on one 
rite of passage
native son
invisible man 
their eyes were watching god
roll of thunder, hear my cry
a lesson before dying
things fall apart
we also read assorted poetic works of the harlem renaissance


What books by black authors do y'all think should be taught in schools? 

hmmm... i'm sure these are covered somewhere, but in addition to the above:

bell hooks-- happy to be nappy (there was also an animated hbo special)
alice walker-- the color purple
maya angelou-- i know why the caged bird sings 

i'd like to see more focus on or an addition of short stories & poetry: nikki giovanni, calude mckay, alice walker, langston hughes...

They're mad over there.  One of my FB contacts posted yesterday outraged that the history textbooks in South Carolina aren't accurate.  Apparently it's worth outrage when White/gun rights are involved......
Her comment referencing Glen Beck Wacko:  Among other things he was talking about the history text books that defines the Second Amendment as “the right to bear arms as members of a state militia.” The truth is NOT being taught in our schools to our children. The text book is "state adopted" in SC and isn't accurate . What exactly are we doing here? Rewriting history starting with our right to bear arms? Someone answer me back with our Second Amendment Rights. Non text book version please.

Do any of the lectures/videos have previews or something? All I see are titles and prices. The site itself isn't very user friendly. No comment on the content since I can't find any of it.
