The Education of the Negro Prior to 1861

by Carter Godwin Woodson

An excellent resource! Its age puts it closer in time to the reality of the situation - that in my opinion has been distorted. Having learned that my slave ancestors were reading and writing in 1835 through a family Bible, I was intrigued. So glad I found this book.
