I came across this article this afternoon, impressed by the extensiveness of your study -- and it made me wonder whether you have ever heard of the Manual Training and Industrial School for Colored Youth, which thrived in Bordentown New Jersey for the first half of the 20th century. Its second principal had been a professor at Howard; he was succeeded by one from Harvard. As I argue in the article linked below, the school merged ideas from Washington, Du Bois -- and Dewey. Alas, the school seems largely forgotten, and it could hardly be replicated today, but it does have some valuable lessons -- persistence among its graduates among them. Below are links both to my article and to a brief piece about the school that appeared recently in a Princeton weekly.
I'd welcome hearing from you on this. Good wishes, CG
