The positive effects of multicultural content on reading performances have been researched and documented by award-winning author and Harvard University Graduate, Dr. Jacqueline Fleming. According to Dr. Fleming “The results showed that exposure to multicultural materials in reading resulted in performances on culturally-relevant materials that was up to 112% better than on standard materials, and that culturally-relevant materials appeared to facilitate learning from standard to culturally-relevant materials. The results suggest that multicultural education not only serves the purposes of equity and cultural democracy, but also the purpose of enhancing the performance of African American students.”
