the mis-education of the negro

Posted in books by Tanae' A. on December 16, 2007

okay so I went into the bookstore yesterday to get ONE book… The Autobiography of Malcolm X…and of course they were sold out. So instead of jus leaving out of the store I see this book by Carter G. Woodson and remembered that it was on Heber’s list so I decided to pick it up. But then they trapped me… in the store with Chunichi the author of A Gangsta Girl Saga and of course the book was on sale. Needless to say I walked out of there with 3 books that I didn’t plan to get that cost 26.15 that I didn’t plan to spend. But who isn’t giving in to a great sale?? lol!! but anyways…

I got this book and I started reading it and I got finished the first chapter and I am not really sure of how I should feel about it. The first thing that I noticed was the year the book was first written and then I was amazed that this black man could write with so much intelligence in such a time. And then I questioned how he knew so much about what it is that he speaks so profoundly about. He is obviously an educated man, and in the first chapter he talks about education so I wonder how he managed to get around or completely walk thru the barriers in which he speaks of. So I decided that before I read any further I would need to go online to read this mans biography. I’ll get back up with yall on Monday to let you know what I find out. This is pretty interesting so far.

Lets just hope I can get thru all 45 books… thats the goal I am setting for myself in 09
