More From Carter G. Woodson
- "In our so-called democracy we are accustomed to give the majority what they want rather than educate them to understand what is best for them."
- "And thus goes segregation which is the most far-reaching development in the history of the Negro since the enslavement of the race."
- "The so-called modern education, with all its defects, however, does others so much more good than it does the Negro, because it has been worked out in conformity to the needs of those who have enslaved and oppressed weaker peoples."
