National Black Parents Code
Guidelines For Correct Black Parents
I will have a feeling of love and responsibility for all Black children,
be they my own biological descendants or not. The extended family
is a traditional way of life for us, therefore all African adults are
potentially correct Black parents.
I will teach what is right and what is wrong.
I will respect my children and will demand respect from them.
I will strive to produce in the home harmony, stability and an
atmosphere of trust and love. I will provide opportunities for learning
and will instill a sense of pride by teaching our past and present
history.
I will have control and power in the home, being that the home is the
smallest example of a Nation-and if the home is not together you
cannot deal with outside forces.
I will find the best possible educational institution for my children and
I will participate in some way in the institution.
I will seek to establish and perpetuate those moral attitudes and
values which will add to my children's personalities and characters:
virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherliness,
kindness and charity.
I will develop a deep inner love that flows over and around the Black
child to form a shield of protection, guidance, wisdom and strength.
I will assume the responsibility for cultivating the development of
Black youth. This cultivation process occurs mentally (through skill
development); physically (through the sharing of food, clothing and
shelter); emotionally (through the commitment to the national
development of Black people); and, spiritually (through the living out
of a superior value system).
I will be about collaborating with others like myself, creating an
atmosphere whereby Black children can grow and develop their
potential in effective and meaningful ways.
I will be responsible for strengthening the positive qualities of the
child and for correcting negative characteristics. I will maintain and
nurture positive stability in the Black family.
I will be a model of the intellectual, emotional and moral discipline
necessary to the child's understanding of, relationship to, and
responsibility for the total Black experience-past, present and future.
I will have as my goal harmony within and freedom without; with
confidence in the knowledge that the ultimate in freedom is service to
mankind. My whole person and lifestyle will transmit these same
values to the young.
I will help every Black child to develop the skills to survive. I will
teach that the highest good in life is to serve Black people, helping all
Black people in the struggle to survive.
