Changes in Literacy
In 1870, 20% of the entire adult population was illiterate, and 80% of the black population was illiterate. [...] For the later part of this century the illiteracy rates have been relatively low, registering only about 4% as early as 1930. [...] The gap in illiteracy between white and black adults continued to narrow through the 20th century, and in 1979 the rates were about the same.
