Explorations in Sights and Sounds
This book was initiated by the National Center for Urban Ethnic Affairs with funding from the Ford Foundation and the U.S. Office of Education. It clearly states and carries out its purpose, i.e., alteration of the ordinary high school curriculum to reflect the diversity of the American ethnic heritage. Throughout the text the richness and significance of that diversity is highlighted, emphasizing several times in skillful and simple language that to be a hyphenated American is un-American. The author has gone to great lengths to include writing from a wide variety of ethnic groups in his selections; any student reading them should be able to identify himself or herself as a part of some ethnic group.
