Summary

Projects were undertaken at the Hampton Institute, with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, to develop and test French and Spanish second language instructional materials from Afro-French and Afro-Hispanic Third World countries. The project was based on the premise that such materials would help Black college students develop an affinity for cultural and linguistic linkages with peoples in the African diaspora, which would enhance the value and relevance of their foreign language study. This hypothesis is supported by research on cultural attitudes. A series of learning modules and accompanying slides on the cultures of Black French Africa, the French Caribbean, and areas of South and Central America where there are Spanish-speaking peoples of African descent were developed. It is suggested that such materials promote not only global understanding and appreciation but also appreciation of some recent immigrants to this country. (MSE)
