Language Observing Visual Explorations: After School Academic Program (LOVE: ASAP) is a participatory action qualitative research study. I listen to the voices of African American Middle School girls, and examine their schooling narratives. Poetry, prose and collages personify their narratives as they metacognitively engage in culturally relevant language and visual arts activities. Within theses activities, they explore social justice, history, and accountability. As I excogitate their personal narratives within a critical race narrative frame, evidence of racism, miseducation, suppression, omission, and the oppression of their sui generis and strengths recrudesces. This research addresses the issues that culturally relevant pedagogy remediates, alleviates, and combats. My study creates interlocution between African American Middle School girls, and educational research.
