Rashid, Kamau
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
W.E.B. Du Bois offered an educational theory that sought to contextualize the role of schools and their relevance to social justice. Responding to the social-historical malaise of African American subordination, he proposed that schools could provide the impetus towards cultural, economic, and political empowerment. Moreover, his theory of education anticipates key themes within the African-Centered paradigm of education as it emerges in the late 20th century.
