In 1921, a dozen years before he wrote his provocative classic, The Mis-Education of the Negro, Carter G. Woodson, yet to be known as the father of Black History, authored another work of social criticism.
A stinging critique of white racism and a sterling defense of the Black race, the manuscript was undoubtedly too caustic for white society in 1921.
Lost for over eighty years, the manuscript has been found! And it is now available in a limited leather-bound edition by the association founded by Woodson, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History.
Edited with an Introduction by
Daryl Michael Scott
Woodson's lost manuscript has been edited for publication by Daryl Michael Scott, Professor of History and Chair of the Department of History at Howard University.
