Why Hic, Haec, Hoc for the Negro? -or- Did Our Northern Friends Make a Mistake?, 1900

preface of a book by R. S. Lovinggood

Author: Lovinggood, Reuben Shannon

Lovinggood’s pamphlet made an impassioned argument against those – primarily white supremacists but also certain Black leaders – who (for their very different reasons) prioritized the merits of “industrial education” for African American students against “liberal education”.
