Education of the Black Adult in the United States: An Annotated Bibliography.
McGee, Leo, Comp.; Neufeldt, Harvey G., Comp.
This bibliography provides an annotated list of 367 books and articles which address the subject of the education of black adults. The book is divided into five sections. The first includes resources on black education from 1619 to 1860. Education and training on the plantation, as well as in schools and special societies and through apprenticeships, is covered. The bibliography then lists literature covering the Civil War and Reconstruction period, 1860-1880. Included here are books which discuss the first efforts to reduce black illiteracy and the debate over the content and necessity of black education. The third section, covering the period from 1880 to 1930, lists sources concerned with the withdrawal of the Federal government from the realm of black education and black rights, and the implementation of the "separate but equal" doctrine. The fourth section, pertaining to the modern era, 1930 to the present, covers literature about the return of Federal support of black education and about various government programs. Finally, the fifth section lists "general resources," works which overlap the periods used to organize the bibliography. (KH)
