Classics and Classical Education in the Black Community
Americans of all races have found within the classical tradition calls to freedom, justice, and other high ideals. Today, even as some question the role of the Classics, we also see a renaissance of classical education. The voices of Black Americans are crucial to ensuring that this renewed educational foundation is equitable and enduring.
