Horace Mann Bond was an early twentieth century scholar and a college administrator who focused on higher education for African Americans. His Negro Education in Alabama won Brown University’s Susan Colver Rosenberger Book Prize in 1937 and was praised as a landmark by W. E. B. Dubois in American Historical Review and by scholars in journals such as Journal of Negro Education and the Journal of Southern History.
A seminal and wide-ranging work that encompasses not only education per se but a keen analysis of the African American experience of Reconstruction and the following decades, Negro Education in Alabama illuminates the social and educational conditions of its period. Observers of contemporary education can quickly perceive in Bond’s account the roots of many of today’s educational challenges.

Horace Mann Bond was President of Fort Valley State College (1939-1945) and Lincoln University (1945-1957), and ended his career as Dean of the School of Education at Atlanta University.

“Soundly links sociopolitical attitudes with economics…Bond’s work stands the test of time.”—Southern Historian


"The continuingi mportanceo f Bond's work is demonstrated by numerous citations of it in recent and contemporary works in history, educational history, and black history. The fact that the book remains available today in a paperback edition is still more testimony to its significance." —History of Education Quarterly
