I was referring to Carter G. Woodson's book. The Miseducation of the.... It's a good book originally published in 1933. It has relevance today. I read it about 8 years ago.What's it about
Is it an empowering or disheartening read
He said "if our people got their conception of religion from slaveholders, libertines, and murderers, there may be something wrong about it, and it would not hurt to investigate it."
From my understanding of this he is not insulting said religion he's saying to pull back the sheets and determine for yourself what it is doing for you or to you, since it was gave to you.
In a way religion was taken from the largest continent, repackaged and possibly repurposed to fit their agenda (slave history proves this)........
That may be relevant to some and not so relevant to others.
-It is an inspiring read, at its least it gives detail on things that have failed in the past. That is value for the reason of not repeating those failed attempts.
