Adult learning through religious music in an African American church by Michael Rowland( )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The findings of the study revealed that religious music was educative for African American adults in this study. Religious music was perceived as educative in the African American church as a source to transmit basic biblical beliefs and theological statements that served to reinforce what was heard in the teachings, scripture readings and sermons in the church. It was further educative for some simply as an appreciation for music as an art and cultural form in the church. The participants were taught important concepts of endurance, liberation, and unity through religious music. The Biblical beliefs and theology heard in religious music influenced their thinking and affected their view towards life, God, religion, and racial issues

African Americans and Self-Help Education: The Missing Link in Adult Education. Eric Digest No. 222 by Michael Rowland( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Self-help education and self-help literature is important in the lives of African American adults, but the basic models of learning, development, and program planning in adult education have often been developed with little concern for the unique needs of African Americans. In addition, current theories of adult learning often lack understanding of culture and the role that race, economics, and gender play in the learning transaction. For example, some critics argue that three of the main theories of adult education--andragogy, self-directed learning, and perspective transformation--focus heavily on the individual and do not recognize the value of groups, as an Africentric perspective would. An Africentric perspective should be considered in developing models for learning and development. Africentric books present sensitive issues and point out those hidden barriers that only other African Americans who have experienced them first hand would know. The emphasis on self-actualization or student-centered learning has been the mainstay of the African American community; from the days of slavery, African Americans have had to develop coping skills just to stay alive. Self-help and adult education are models exemplified by such men as Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Dubois. Given the need for self-help education in the lives of African Americans, adult educators can conduct research to discover the applicability of the mainstream models of self-help for African Americans and learn to use new Africentric models.

The African American Sermon as an Exemplar of Culturally Relevant Adult Education by E. Paulette Isaac( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Historically, the Black Church was culturally responsive to the needs of their community. In order to meet the needs of African American adult learners, the church had to assume many roles one of which was that of educator. Like many informal institutions of learning, the Black Church has been overlooked as a site for adult education research. Ten sermons of African-American preachers were analyzed to identify culturally relevant themes and their applicability for use in adult education classrooms. These five themes that relate to different aspects of African American life were revealed: (1) self-ethnic personalities/experiences; (2) self-ethnic social experiences; (3) self-ethnic psycho-cultural; (4) Africentric affirmations; and (5) self-ethnic metaphors. These conclusions were drawn from the thematic analyses: (1) African American sermons can provide adult educators with culturally relevant names that reflect self-ethnic personalities with which learners can identify; (2) negative self-ethnic social and psycho-cultural experiences of learners can be mitigated by educators made more aware; and (3) the polyrhythmic cadence of African-American sermons grow out of an oral tradition; and (4) affirmation themes are one way to mitigate against negative self-image. (A glossary of the five themes is included. The bibliography lists 27 references). (Aj)
