Independent schools with a black/African emphasis?

Sept 2006

Greetings, peace, and love. Does anyone have any information about home based or independent schools that have a black/African emphasis? We are looking for one that serves first grade for our son. All leads are appreciated. Thanks.

I asked a friend of mine and she suggested the following: Shelton's and Roots of Unique Awareness. She would recommend Shelton's, as it has been around the longest and has the best academic record. Shelton's is in Berkeley or North Oakland, and Roots is in West Oakland. Hope this is helpful.
