“The Negro, whether in Africa or America, must be directed toward a serious examination of the fundamentals of education, religion, literature, and philosophy as they have been expounded to him. He must be sufficiently enlightened to determine for himself whether these forces have come into his life to bless him or bless his oppressor. After learning the facts in the case the Negro must develop the power of execution to deal with these matters as do people of vision.”

Best book ever written about black people
The miseducation of the negro has a contemporary relevance that any conscious black person will appreciate and possibly apply to their everyday lives in a way that will change their thinking and actions in a positive way. Every black child NEEDS to read this book.
Sectioned for success
It was well versed and stages of success necessary for a people to be educated somehow. Gratitude for this upload.
Insightful but Discriminatory
From the outset the Preface bestowed the book’s internal intentions on not broadsiding or critically attacking any person or class. But upon conclusion of this book, the alienation and angry viewpoints (although passionate) were strongly geared towards one race, thereby was fully comprehensible. To the good end, the wide arrangements of vocabulary tied in with expressional usage were most enlightening. Education can handsomely add and extends to any human beings character, but your love as to respect for God and your fellow man defines who you are as a person. To which the interpretation of this book offers an reopening of painful wounds that’s apparently hasn’t completely healed. Revisiting our past can be insightful if we’re able to separate then from now. But to the contrary, it can consume and choke our righteous being if we can’t.
