The mis-education of the Negro by Carter Godwin Woodson( Book )

121 editions published between 1892 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 2,979 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Mis-Education of the Negro by Dr. Carter G. Woodson follows the thesis that African-Americans of Woodson's day were being culturally indoctrinated rather than taught in American schools. This conditioning, he claims, causes African-Americans to become dependent and to seek out inferior places in the greater society of which they are a part. Woodson challenges his readers to become autodidacts and to "do for themselves," regardless of what they were taught

In reprinting these orations the editor has endeavored to present them here as nearly as possible in their original form. No effort has been made to improve the English. Published in this form, then, these orations will be of value not only to persons studying the development of the Negro in his use of a modern idiom but also in the study of the history of the race. It is in this spirit that these messages are again given to the public
The history of the Negro church by Carter Godwin Woodson( Book )

49 editions published between 1921 and 2018 in English and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the illustrated version, which includes images of some of the people mentioned in the book. 'The importance of the church in the life of the Negro justifies the publication of this brief account of the development of the institution. For many years the various denominations have been writing treatises bearing on their own particular work, but hitherto there has been no effort to study the achievements of all of these groups as parts of the same institution and to show the evolution of it from the earliest period to the present time. This is the objective of this volume. Whether or not the author has done this task well is a question which the public must decide. This work does not represent what he desired to make it. Many facts of the past could not be obtained for the reason that several denominations have failed to keep records and facts known to persons now active in the church could not be collected because of indifference or the failure to understand the motives of the author. Not a few church officers and ministers, however, gladly coöperated with the author in giving and seeking information concerning their denominations. Among these were Mr. Charles H. Wesley, Prof. J. A. Booker, and Dr. Walter H. Brooks. For their valuable assistance the author feels deeply grateful.' Carter G. Woodson. Washington, D.C., September, 1921"--Amazon.com
