There are amazing resources for addressing (and really *wrestling* with) those core questions in Ralph Ellison and Albert Murray (friends of Bearden and Duke Ellington, et al.) - brilliant social/political/cultural essays and fiction written throughout the key civil rights moments of the late 20th century. Have you seen anyone including those authors in Classical Ed (or anywhere else)?

I've had students ask about the lack of "Great Thinkers" of color. My response is generally, "most of their traditions were oral so the lack of documentation tends to lead to it being difficult to find them." I currently in Nigeria and have heard some of the same questions. I'm starting to feel like my response is a cop-out. Any advice? I'm currently teaching in Nigeria, so these questions are still coming from Black children.

In both upper and lower school, we will need to make space in current curriculum to introduce new writers, thinkers, etc - as Nyansa developed curriculum/sources, how did you think about what to leave out to create this space?

Athanasius’s account of the life of St. Anthony, the first monk, is wonderful. Athanasius was North African and was mocked by his opponents for his skin tone.

Louis Gates, Jr. did a wonderful series on black Americans and it was sobering to watch his interview with natives of Sierra Leone who inherited wealth from native slave traders....they freely shared that in the past, there had been wars and slavery between tribes who might look "the same" to a westerner, but they didn't have the same language or beliefs, so they became 'other.'
