- We can order this from the publisher
Mabee discusses colonial church-sponsored efforts to educate slaves, the work of nineteenth-century white abolitionists in promoting black education, and the role of both blacks and whites in developing public schools and other kinds of schools for blacks. Extensive research into primary sources provides new insights into the major nineteenth- century school issues as they related to blacks in the state. Mabee also examines the impact of the "Great Migration" of blacks into the state in the early twentieth century and the revival of segregated schools that followed.
