The book gives insight on how we as African-Americans were educated in a predominately White system of thought. It criticizes the "educated" African-Americans on their actions and responses in society especially as it related the Black community. This mis-education became evident in the educational, business, and religious areas. Some of the issues brought out in the book still exist today such as our perception of Black-owned businesses and how we were taught to see ourselves as inferior.
This is a classic read even though it describes the issues of the past (Jim Crow, segregation, etc.). Yet, it can be used to understand how the "old" system still affects us today. I have always heard about this book, but never read it in my younger years (high school and college). I wish I read it sooner.
