Please join us for a casual refreshment and chat around the book: The Mis-Education of the Negro, by Carter Woodson. Educators and community members welcome! Participants should plan to acquire and read the book (or chapters they feel are most relevant to their own work) before the book club meets. This event is a part of our monthly book club around race & education that meets the third Tuesday of every month. Feel free to bring suggestions of what our next book should be!
Amazon Synopsis of the book: "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."
