Abstract

The article presents findings from research investigating the history of the U.S. black education during the first half of the twentieth century and provides insight into the application of Brian Simon's, an educationist, ideas to different national context. Hundreds of black scholars pursued advanced degrees at a select group of northern research universities with cutting-edge programmes in the field of education. Belief in the political power to be gained through liberal education countered the prevailing philanthropic model that created a two-tier system in preferring an industrial curriculum for black people.
