Willie Lynch’s Letter or Speech in African American Studies
Discuss the Willie Lynch Letter or Speech. Does it matter that the document is false and that Willie Lynch is not real?
There are many people, many of them well-educated, who promote this document as truth. There are others who recognize the document as false but believe there is “some truth to it” and that it should be used as a tool to educate African Americans about racism and slavery. Given what Karenga says about the relevance of Africana Studies, what position should Africana Studies scholars take on the issue? Demonstrate knowledge of the criterion for determining historical truth. Demonstrate awareness of one or more of the grounds of the relevance of Africana Studies as outlined in Maulana Karenga’s Introduction to Black Studies.
