The Mis-education of the Negro by Dr. Carter G. Woodson, a reprint, under the auspices for Mint Editions is an important book recounting the educational situation, or lack thereof, in the antebellum period.
First published in 1933, "The Mis-Education of the Negro" is an important work that reflects the attitudes and beliefs of its time. While its critique of the American educational system remains relevant today, it is important to acknowledge its limitations as a product of its time. Some of its language and ideas may be considered outdated and offensive by contemporary standards, such as Dr. Woodson's views on gender and sexuality.

In conclusion, "The Mis-Education of the Negro" is a significant and influential work that highlights the importance of accurately reflecting the history and culture of African Americans in education. However, it is important to consider its limitations as a product of its time and recognize that some of its language and ideas may not align with contemporary attitudes and beliefs.

I struggled with this book, but only because it’s very academic, the print is small and the information is so thorough. I’m still not done but plan on completing it eventually. Other than that the writing is excellent and the research is well organized and done.

The Mis-education of the Negro is a little dense at times, but this erudite work is well worth the effort. It really should be required reading for everyone.

This edition actually comprises two separate but related works. The first is "The Education of the Negro Prior to 1861" and traces the history of efforts to educate or keep ignorant both enslaved and free people of color. It was an eye-opener for this older white man. (Dr. Woodson offers citations for every fact and includes an appendix of selected primary sources.) One startling lesson: almost from the beginning, most people of color found themselves in segregated schools. The second book is the title work, "The Miseducation of the Negro", in which Dr. Woodson offers his commentary on the state of education for African-Americans as of the early 1930s. Together, both books should be required reading for all white Americans.… (més)
