This book, written by an African American, was the first one to show that we Africans have a different soul than whites so that white education isn't fit for us and most of us can't cope with it. That the book was written in 1933 should make it a shame that Black-haters like David Horowitz spend all their energy abolishing Black studies and positive discrimination (in his racist, anti-Black books (Hating Whitey ; The Race card, etc.) Now there are many other books by African authors, some quite deep such as P. C. Luthuli's The Philosophical foundations of Black education in South Africa. And even some book by some friendly whites who accept to understand the problem and the need for a separate, all-black education system, I mean Jacqueline Irvine's Black Students and School Failure. A good recent African and practical book is Wilson's Awakening the Natural Genius of Black Children. Let's praise people like Woodson, he showed the way for freeing us from the slavery of our minds and souls. Read this book and you will understand that slavery is not only physical, legal, but also a question of imposing us white education, thought, from which we also need liberation.
