"This history of black education in post-Civil War Alabama serves several functions; it collects and publishes an enormous amount of material, much of it fugitive in nature, painting the portraits of many individuals both famous and obscure . . . and it illustrates —particularly in its critical discussion of Booker T. Washington—the history of goals in post-secondary institutions and the appropriateness of vocational or liberal arts training."

—Capsules: A Review of Higher Education Research

"Sherer . . . views black education from an enlightening perspective. Since public education is organized around state aid and legislation, his approach allows Sherer to trace the role of state legislation and administrative policy and analyze efforts of black educators to lobby for various measures. . . . Well executed."

American Historical Review

"A model for future research."
