Abstract

JOURNAL OF THE EARLY REPUBLIC (Spring 2012) and the Negro College crisis could ever yield given its focus upon a private college serving a select few instead of upon a general access of blacks to basic schooling. She could also have credited more fully the significant preceding work that first explored the failure of ``the promise.'' Leon Litwack, Carleton Mabee, and Leonard Curry go unrecognized, as does Carter G. Woodson's pioneering The Education of the Negro Prior to 1861. Moss states that ``no study before this one has united'' an investigation of ``African American history and the expansion of public education'' (9). Yet surely these scholars probed that combination and her important contribution to our understanding of race and public education in the era builds upon their foundation. Pe ter H ink s is the author of To Awaken My Afflicted Brethren: David Walker and the Problem of Antebellum Slave Resistance (University Park, PA, 1997) and editor with Stephen Kantrowitz of the forthcoming volume, All Men Free and Brethren: Essays on the History of African American Freemasonry (Ithaca, NY, 2012).
