YOUNG, GIFTED AND BLACK
"In every milestone from lifting the head to grasping, rolling over, recognizing mommy, crawling, walking, feeding themselves black babies are a couple of months ahead of other races.
Black babies advance earlier and faster than white babies.
In his book, The Developmental Psychology of the Black Child, Dr. Amos Wilson uses test results taken from the research of WHITE social scientists to show that, contrary to being inferior to whites, Black children in particular show superior psychomotor development over European children:
"Whenever motor differences between white and black American infants have been noted in research literature, the black babies have been advanced in comparison with the whites.... this is also the case with black children of other nationalities, particularly of African origin."
"The African babies actually seemed to have been born at a more advanced stage of development, since many of their activities at less than a week corresponded to those performed by European children aged four to eight weeks."

Black babies are smaller than white ones but the smaller black neonate becomes
the larger and more advanced child right through adolescence

There is evidence to suggest that non-white babies, especially Black babies, are more advanced in their gross motor
development than white babies
many studies have been done that show black babies are more advanced than white babies, but they have been confined to scholarly journals away from general public--Pasamanik 1946, Williams and scott 1953, Geber 1957, Bayley 1965, Ainsworth 1967, Morgan 1990

Awakening the Natural Genius of Black Children
by Amos N. Wilson
Afrikan children are naturally precocious and gifted. They begin life with a “natural head start.” However, their natural genius it too frequently underdeveloped and misdirected by (1)the fact that the racist and he imperialist status quo politically mandates their intellectual under-achievement and social mal-adaptiveness; (2) belief in the myth that intelligence is fixed at birth and that Afrikans are innately less intelligent than Europeans; (3) a lack of knowledge of their positively unique developmental psychology; (4) a lack of confidence in their ability to equal or surpass the intellectual performance of any other ethnic group; (5) the general lack of infant and early childhood educational experiences which stimulate, sustain and actualize their abundant human potential. Awakening the Natural Genius of Black Children provides effective means by which these political and social maladies may be fully remedied.
