Anti-defamation League Issues Film Strip on History of American Negro

“For almost two centuries, American schools have taught only a one-dimensional white history of our country,” begins a teachers’ guide to a unique filmstrip series produced by the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith. The series, “Black Odyssey: A History of the American Negro,” is already in use at schools throughout the country. It is part of the Anti-Defamation League’s on-going attempts to achieve equal rights for all minorities through the education of the minorities themselves. “Black Odyssey,” according to Benjamin R. Epstein, director of the League, presents the story of the American Negro in true prospective.
