Overview

THE thoughts brought together in this volume have been expressed in recent addresses and articles written by the author. From time to time persons deeply interested in the point of view therein presented have requested that these comments on education be made available in book form. To supply this demand this volume is given to the public.

In the preparation of the volume the author has not followed in detail the productions upon which most of the book is based. The aim is to set forth only the thought developed in passing from the one to the other. The language in some cases, then, is entirely new; and the work is not a collection of essays. In this way repetition has been avoided except to emphasize the thesis which the author sustains.
Carter Godwin Woodson Washington, D. C.

    Giving birth to an misunderstood culture

    Mis-Education of the Negro is a must read and discussion for all of those who are educators in the field of education. The book seems as thou it was written in todays time, which gives an eye opening to the lack of change in the educational system. Great book of knowledge.

    The Mis-Edducation of the Negro Review

    I find this book to be very interesting. It is a wonderful book. I love many things about this book. It is interesting how the author speaks such strong truths and opinions. It discusses great and intriguing topics about the problems and road blocks in the Negro culture back then where racism was extreme and segregation existed. For example, back then most Negroes wouldn¿t work for another Negro employer, they felt that they were inferior to whites and no better than the other Negroes working under him. I think that many of the problems talked about in this book still exist in Black culture. I recommend this book to pretty much anyone. It shows how it was for Negroes and White people back then.

    awesome

    mr woodson does a superlative job of disabusing the less and more privileged elements of society of false notions about reality. mr woodson makes it very clear that proper education is supreme to miseducation which is actually worse than no formal education at all. miseducation gets its venom from the fact that it masquerades as a tool of improvement in theory while mentally and physically incarcerating unenlightened agents of society in reality. the 'highly educated' negros who are assigned the responsibility of being the saviors of the race are actually racial sycophants who hide behind their credentials, cowardice, and comfort. they are paralyzed as they analyze their current situation and where their next meal will or won't come from if they stand for justice instead of resting on their worthless laurels. such apprehension will ultimately result in the stagnation of a people. woodson contends that the only way to transcend circumstance is through cultivating a generation of thinkers. those who are willing to confront the past, learn the truth of negro history, find true champions of our race(regardless of color) to become our teachers, and stand courageously in the face of tribulation deserve to be our leaders. our moses will not come from without as he did for the israelites, but from within, through scientific study of our race, proper education, and introspection.

    Recommended for all races, not just black people.

    This book causes people of all colors to reflect on how they contribute to the demise of society. My favorite chapter is Leadership vs. Service. I now believe that the quality of a leader should be measured by the standard of his service, not how he can delegate orders.

    A true must read for all

    This book outlines what education should be. When you begin your educational pursuit, you should know the reason why you are being educated and what you should expect to obtain from your education. Many people go to school because we are 'supposed to'. This book clearly defines what education is!
