A History of Negro Education in the South: From 1619 to the Present.
The author examines the “educational opportunities of Southern Negroes from early colonial times to the present, [showing] that an unintended consequence of the slave economy was the creation of opportunities for the Negro which led gradually to his emancipation.” Bullock discusses slaves being educated by their masters; the freedmen’s school system; the founding of over 500 schools in the Southern States by 1865; and the effort to perpetuate segregation in the aftermath of anti-Negro sentiment released in the Reconstruction era.
