This chapter presents the article “The Kind of Education the Afro-American Most Needs,” published in Hampton Institute's Southern Workman, where Fortune emphasized the importance of industrial education. This idea was promoted by schools such as Hampton and Booker T. Washington's Tuskegee Institute and by Fortune himself in his 1884 Black and White. As in his argument laid out in Black and White, Fortune did not undervalue the necessity of higher education but rather called for both to be employed for the betterment of the race.
