African American Education

More Info
Today all children are required to attend school, but there was a time when all Americans did not enjoy the right to an education and the chance to improve their situation in life. In the nineteenth century, it was against the law in some areas of the United States to teach African Americans. The laws were rooted in the slave system of the South. In this book, we trace the history of African American education before and after the Civil War, from secret schools to well-established universities.
