“Carnegie in Africa and the Knowledge Politics of Apartheid: Research Agendas Not Taken” explains the competing world visions that shaped the research agenda for Carnegie philanthropy in Africa. One world vision trained a personnel that could effectively link the administration of multiple white nations and play the white-vulnerability card while the other world vision articulated black emancipation from the legacies of racial rule. Knowing what research the Carnegie Corporation funded and rejected aids our understanding of the role of the Poor White Study and white poverty as a tool in the global segregationist arsenal. In the midst of world war against racial classification in Europe, the Carnegie Corporation understood the proletarianization of black people in Africa and the genocidal state violence that accompanied it as necessary progress and a viable extension of the “English-speaking race.”
