Abstract

Being a black student comes with a history of alienation. Where your home language and culture has no place in your learning. Black students indicate the importance of their languages in sense making, they display their potential in attaining higher levels of thinking when new ideas are connected to their cultural tools. Mathematics ideas are not far fetched but continue to be used to marginalise.
