Black Cultural Learning Styles: Is It Really a Myth?

pp. 562—567

First, let me begin by stating that Frisby’s article (this issue) on black cultural learning styles (BCLS) is significant in that it may give voice to many criticisms of that literature. However, it seems that several issues raised by the author are somewhat misguided. The primary basis for his critique centers around the notion of whether black culture exists as an entity distinguishable from western or American culture. Therefore, how he responds to this issue underlies his critique of the five major BCLS assumptions. My commentary has implications for each of the five assumptions identified by the author.
