The Mis-Education of The Negro (HB)

“The Mis-Education of the Negro,” originally published in 1933 by Dr. Carter G. Woodson, argues that African Americans of his time were not being educated but rather culturally indoctrinated in American schools. Woodson contends that this indoctrination leads to dependency and a belief in inferiority among African Americans. He challenges readers to become self-taught and to strive for self-sufficiency, emphasizing that historical patterns show that those who rely solely on others for their advancement never gain more rights or privileges in the end.
