This chapter provides a critical account of African American language research discourse and cultural imperialism in the U.S. It analyzes the discourses that underlie research on African American language in the U.S. that contribute to its contested meanings in the public sphere. It also highlights the 1996 resolution of the Oakland Unified School District in California that affirmed the role of African American culture and language in the education of Afro-American students.

Keywords:   African American language, discourse, cultural imperialism, education, African American culture, African American students, Oakland, California
