Fugitive pedagogy Carter G. Woodson and the art of Black teaching

Jarvis R. Givens

Book - 2022

"The story of Black education is about more than desegregation and inclusion in mainstream schooling. Jarvis Givens returns to the classrooms of Jim Crow to highlight the forgotten work of Carter G. Woodson and his followers, who undertook the radical act of educating Black children. Their subversive methods continue to provide a model today"--Provided by publisher.
