Overview

The MIS-Education of the Negro (an African American Heritage Book) by Carter G. Woodson

The Mis-Education of the Negro is one of the most important books on education ever written. Carter G. Woodson shows us the weakness of Euro-centric based curriculums that fail to include African American history and culture. This system mis-educates the African American student, failing to prepare them for success and to give them an adequate sense of who they are within the system that they must live. Woodson provides many strong solutions to the problems he identifies. A must-read for anyone working in the education field.

I took a shot in the wind at picking this book to begin my quest for "re-discovery" and I could not believe the impact it had on my life. There will not be any one person who reads this book to the end who will not understand the need for self-improvement. It has become a very profound encouragement that someone over one-hundred years ago could aide me in being a better member to our social relationships. I now have the desire to speak of facts that I have learned, rather than defend my past blindly. Amazing how one can provide an intellectual reasoning, in support of God's Law, that promotes this type of "uprising" in myself. Carter G. Woodson gave to the world, a way to make a difference in our communities. I encourage everyone who views this rating to "take a shot in the wind", you will not be displeased. An absolute must read for anyone who seeks a need to change!

This was such a great book that everyone can learn from especially those of the black race. It was very informative and written well, and I'd read it again.

I've wanted to read this book for a few years now and it didn't disappoint. This book was written in the 1930s so it should be read with that historical context in mind, but many of the main ideas apply today. This is a valuable read for educators, students (high school/college), and leaders of any age. It's important to learn the history of why certain decisions were made in order to make better decisions in the future.
