In the social studies boys and girls in the elementary school learn about the leaders and heroes of the Negro race through their studies of holidays and special events. With this as the only channel, they received very limited information. In high school, courses are offered which afford greater opportunities for learning. Since it is the responsibility of the social studies teacher to provide certain learning situations in which our American heritage can be given form and substance, it is the purpose of this paper to see if it is possible to remove information on minority groups from "special" instructional areas and techniques and integrate it into the normal pattern of instruction.
