Every journey starts with a step... This is the first 7.
It is hard too believe that a book so relevant to our current culture was written so long ago. Education is the key to enlightenment, "mis-education" results in social stagnation and in some cases regression.
This book is very necessary!!!!!
Carter G. Woodson was ahead of his time. This book is as important today as it was the day it was printed. I don't care about race, Racism is woven in the fabric of America. We need to focus on the mis education of the African Americans in the USA. Integration was the worst thing that could've happened next to slavery itself to the blacks in America.
