An ungraded reader, assuredly mainly for use as a supplement in Black schools of the 1920s.

I was hoping for curriculum details but got little, although many of the stories/excerpts are about education. As usual for a reader of this time, the moral content is quite important - and the push for education occupies a large part of that.

Like most collections, it's mixed. The first story is a rather dull one by Dunbar, but it is shortly thereafter followed by Booker T. Washington's "Up from Slavery",
