Thanks to everyone who is posting thier thoughts on this issue! There
are some great thoughts!
I am presenting this lesson to students in the third grade, since
several people asked. Yesterday and today I asked them why it was
important to learn about African Art as they were working on a mask
making activity. Several responded: "We can go to Africa now and know
a little bit about the people and their art".
Guess I should focus on the 99.9% who do appreciate the knowledge.
