Jason Kelly Miller HISTORY IS NOT POLITICALLY CORRECT Words, phrases, and even ideas that were commonplace and accepted a hundred years ago are considered inappropriate today – but if we alter the language of the past, we alter the truth. THE UPWARD PATH contains some of those no-longer-proper words and ideas, but this is what was considered the right kind of reading for African-American children and students in 1920; to pretend it was different would rob us of the chance to understand the past a little bit better. Between these covers are some of the best writing by, for, and about African-American authors in the 19th and early 20th Centuries.
