For Black Children To Academically Succeed, They Must Return To Their Roots

The future success of Black children is tied to the deep African tradition of storytelling. A recent study confirms this adage and has major implications for how Black people teach their children.

According to a new study from the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, early narrative skills are tied to kindergarten literacy among young African-American children. The research is the first to show the connection between the storytelling abilities of Black children and their early reading development.
