Dr. Mary Frances Berry Speaking at the ASALH Annual Luncehon!

Established on September 9, 1915 by Dr. Carter G. Woodson, we are the Founders of Black History 
Month and carry forth the work of our founder, the Father of Black History.
  We continue his legacy 
of speaking a fundamental truth to the world--that Africans and peoples of African descent are makers of 
history and co-workers in what W. E. B. Du Bois called, "The Kingdom of Culture."  ASALH's mission is to 
create and disseminate knowledge about Black History, to be, in short, the nexus between the Ivory Tower 
and the global public.  We labor in the service of Blacks and all humanity
