Subject: African-American English in the Schools

The best book on the subject that I know about is R. Burling's ENGLISH

IN BLACK AND WHITE, published I beleive about 20 years ago by I bellieve

Holt. the last time I used it it was still in print. A name to check is

Walt Wolfram, who has published a lot in this field. You might also want

to call the Center for Applied Linguistics in Washington, DC, and talk

to Donna Christian.
