Abstract:

The principles of interaction and continuity (intersection between experience and education) form a major part of John Dewey's philosophical discourse. According to Dewey, these principles determine the quality of educative experience for meaningful life-long learning. In this article, I argue that nowhere is the relationship between experience and education better illustrated than in Carter G. Woodson's work, The mis-education of the Negro, and in Malcolm X's intrinsic life experiences.
