The Mis-Education of the Negro

The Mis-Education of the Negro

Woodson received his MA from the University of Chicago and PhD from Harvard. It’s hard for me not to like a guy who studied in Chicago, my home town, and lived in DC, my family’s adopted home. More than those ties, though, his writing is clear, incisive, and pointed. It’s hard to know where to start with this book, which was first published in 1933. It’s a fairly brief volume, just 139 pages in the copy that I read, but it is packed.
