Through changing times, from slavery to the present, freedom has meant different things for the African American. Yet, education has always been seen as crucial to obtaining true freedom and equality for all African American people. This book attempts to look at the African American struggle for racial equality and socio-economic equity from Reconstruction to today, by focusing on African American educators who persevered in this struggle and the philosophy which guided their practices. The book has a special focus on the role of adult education in this struggle. Today educators are beginning to recognize that life-long learning will play a critical role in an ever-changing society. This book, therefore, lends a historical perspective to contemporary issues in education.
