Title:Africa and the Southern States of the U.S.A.: notes on J.H. Oldham and American Negro education for Africans
Author:King, K.J.ISNI
Periodical:The Journal of African History
Geographic term:Africa
Subject:educational history
Abstract:Outlines the Pan-African aspect of British colonial education policies during the inter-war years. In particular analyses the role of the missionary statesman, J.H. Oldham, in securing the adoption of a certain style of Negro education in the Southern States of America (one based on the work of the Hampton and Tuskegee Institutes) both by the International Missionary Council and by the Colonial Office Advisory Committee on Education, of which he was a member. Oldham's interest in transferring the Hampton-Tuskegee model to Africa cut across the Pan-African programmes of W.E.B. DuBois and Marcus Garvey. While the article is primarily concerned with the formation of a missionary and Colonial Office concensus on the preferred Negro education for Africans, some attention is also paid to the extent to which the Hampton-Tuskegee model actually took root in Africa.
