The Miseducation Of The Negro
Sobre o livro
The MisEducation of the Negro is a book originally published in 1933 by Dr. Carter G. Woodson. The thesis of Dr. Woodson's book is that blacks of his day were being culturally indoctrinated, rather than taught, in American schools. This conditioning, he claims, causes blacks 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. This book should most definitely be required reading in every high school English class across America. This is the book that has inspired recent protest movements in the United States. A must-read book.
