Carter Godwin Woodson (Dec. 19, 1875 – April 3, 1950) was an African-American historian, author, journalist and the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. Woodson was one of the first scholars to study African-American history. A founder of The Journal of Negro History in 1915, Woodson has been cited as the father of black history. In Feb. 1926 he announced the celebration of "Negro History Week", considered the precursor of Black History Month.
Carter G. Woodson was born in Buckingham County, Virginia, the son of former slaves, James and Eliza Riddle Woodson. His father helped Union soldiers during the Civil War and moved his family to West Virginia when he heard that Huntington was building a high school for blacks.
Coming from a large, poor family, Carter could not regularly attend school. Through self-instruction, he mastered the fundamentals of common school subjects by age 17. Wanting more education, Carter went to Fayette County to earn a living as a miner in the coal fields. He was able to devote only a few months each year to his schooling.
In 1895, at the age of 20, Woodson entered Douglass High School, where he received his diploma in less than two years.From 1897 to 1900, Woodson taught at Winona in Fayette County. In 1900 he was selected as the principal of Douglass High School. He earned his Bachelor of Literature degree from Berea College in Kentucky in 1903 by taking classes part-time between 1901 and 1903.

in The Bible
Tear down the strongholds in your life by learning to pray with the power of Yahuah's (God's) Word.
How do we practice II Corinthians 10:3-5, "Tearing down strong holds by captivating our minds with the knowledge of Yahuah (God)"? Join us as we look at the bible and Beth Moore's book as we discover and discuss practical ways in how to pray Yahuah's (God's) Word and apply these principles to our daily life.
This book is a topical prayer guide addressing fourteen common strongholds and what Scripture reveals about each of them. Praying Yahuah (God's) Word presents Scripture in prayer form to be incorporated into your daily prayer life.
Yahuah's (God's) Word, through prayer, helps you overcome bitterness, anger, and unforgiveness, setting you free from each and every stronghold which claims your life, and replacing it with the mind of the Messiah.
