Ethnicim and History teaching: the african cultural heritage

This essay discusses the teaching of African History in the school system taking into account two different areas of ethnic-racial production and representation: the state of art at universities and the recent legislation on ethnic-racial in relation to African History. We depart from the hypothesis that curricular structures of History courses reproduce in basic education the canon of hybridity. So, the big challenge for African studies is to go beyond the limits of cultural selection.
