Through changing times, from slavery to the present, freedom has meant different things for the African American. Yet, education has always been seen as crucial to obtaining true freedom and equality for all African American people. This book attempts to look at the African American struggle for racial equality and socio-economic equity from Reconstruction to today, by focusing on African American educators who persevered in this struggle and the philosophy which guided their practices. The book has a special focus on the role of adult education in this struggle. In this updated edition of Freedom Road a new chapter has been added that explores the role that Malcolm X, a minister in the Nation of Islam and civil rights activist, played as an adult educator. Today educators are beginning to recognize that lifelong learning will play a critical role in an ever-changing society. This book, therefore, lends a historical perspective to contemporary issues in education.

"The revised text differs from the original primarily by the addition, along with useful references and author notes, of the chapter on Malcolm X's contributions to adult education.  The text is an important source book for practitioners and should be "required" reading for graduate students." -- Larry G. Martin, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, $Adult Learning, Winter 2002

"Freedom Road is a book of great importance.  Those who have not purchased and/or read the first edition must do so as part of expanding their understanding of the roots and development of adult education in the United States.  Those who have the first edition will certainly want to update themselves by reading the additional chapter and perusing the rewritten introduction and conclusion." -- Trenton J. Ferro, PAACE Journal of Lifelong Learning, Vol. 13, 2004
