Publisher's Summary

The Mis-Education of the Negro by Carter Godwin Woodson (1933), addresses important economic and social issues that were faced by African Americans. Woodson criticises education in American schools and the emphasis on the history of the Greeks, Romans, and British. He explores the legacy of slavery and the economic situation of Blacks in the time of depression. In each chapter, he considers the results of miseducation on the church, business, politics, and leadership. The book opens with an analysis of the process of miseducation and in each successive chapter, he demonstrates the results of miseducation on the people’s livelihood, on spiritual life, politics, and leadership.

The more things change.

This book, speaking of a time at the turn of the century sounds as though it is speaking of this current time that we live today in 2021.

Great listen. Sad we are still dealing with the same problems today

Great information on our history in America. Sad part is that it sounds eerily similar to the issues we continue to face today……chapter 21 needs some editing

So Much TRUTH

I truly enjoyed listening to this book. It is an Awakening to the European practice of oppression. I think every people of color including the ones who are passing as another race should read/listen to it.
