The Mis-Education of the Negro by Carter G. Woodson

“The mere imparting of information is not education. ” – Carter G. Woodson

Originally released in 1933, ‘The Mis-Education of the Negro’ continues to resonate today, raising questions that readers are still trying to answer. The impact of slavery on the Black psyche is explored and questions are raised about our education

system, such as why and for whom African Americans are educated, the difference between “education” and “training”, and for which of these preparations African Americans are receiving. Woodson provides solutions to these challenges, but these require more study, discipline, and an Afrocentric worldview.
