The Mis-Education Of The Negro (Paperback)
Ships from wholesaler in 7-10 days
The Mis-Education of the Negro originally published in 1933 by Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson, is arguably his greatest book. The thesis of Dr. Woodson's book is that African Americans of his time were being culturally indoctrinated, rather than taught, in American schools. This conditioning, he claims, causes African-Americans to become dependent and to seek out inferior places in the greater society of which they are a part. He challenges his readers to become autodidacts and to "do for themselves," regardless of what they were taught. The Mis-Education of the Negro by Carter G. Woodson is a classic book and should be a part of everyone's personal library.
