Woodson and Douglass
Write an essay explaining and situating Douglass within the history of African American education under slavery, as as Woodson describes that education. Is Douglass “exceptions” and “rules” for what seem to be Woodson’s theses in his individual chapters? Do his examples strengthen or weaken the points Woodson makes about them, or the African American educational experience they typify? What are the implications for cultural history and cultural competency of Douglass’s examples, according to, or contrary to, Woodson’s arguments about them an their contemporaries? quote and incorporate examples and discussions from Woodson and Douglass.
