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.

It is amazing that after almost 75 years this book remains at the forefront of forward thinking. More than just a book, it is a manual; blue print rather for the uplifting and enlightening of a people without the common stowaway of blaming “the-man” as the father, author, creator, and personified of every woe upon the African American people. More amazing yet is that after 75 years the content and thermos of the book remain sound and accurate. The years may have passed but the spirit in which this book was written; the solutions that it gives; and the unequivocal wisdom that lies with in has not. This should most definitely be required reading in every high school English class across America.

An excellent book!The premise of the author is that African-Americans can be damaged by education that neglects an accurate history of Africa and the African American contributions in America. He points out that much of the education that has been received by African-Americans has worked as propaganda to produce and propagate self-destructive behavior and life patterns. The amazing thing about this book is that it is just as relevant today as it was when it was written almost a hundred years ago. It is amazing how much things appear to change but remain the same.This is a must read for everyone that is interested in understanding and improving the African American condition.
