This thesis is written to continue toward culturally inclusive learning. During the late nineteenth-century African Americans gained freedom, citizenship, education, and political liberties. By 1954 African Americans fought for, and gained, federal rights to fair and equitable education, as well as equal social recognition. Brown was designed to desegregate schools. However, it did not achieve full integration nor did it change unequal academic achievement patterns between minorities and whites. Hence, today many African American students continue to encounter social and cultural impediments along their journey in America's public education system.
