This parent education program integrates the cultural traditions of African Americans into the goals and activities of parenting skills training. Major goals of the program are to help African Americans raise their children in a racially hostile environment, to present African Americans First as the authority on African American parenting, and to empower families with positive images and messages. There are four modules to the program: Difference and Its Place in America; Transcending Oppression and Teaching Dual Consciousness; Spirituality and the Black Church; and Teaching Children to Access Resources. The sessions can be used in conjunction with other parent education programs or on their own.
