    Carter G. Woodson and the History of Black History Month

    in Culture

    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.[5] 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.

    BREAKING: Donald J. Trump & The Most Important Election in World History

    in Culture

    'Today' is nothing more than a product of our 'Past Decisions' - a 'Looking Glass' of sorts; The images it reflects are filled with the decisions of our past and are 100% constructed using only materials harvested from the consequences of our actions - and inactions.


    The upcoming Election will become known - in the future - as one of the most important times in our history.  Never has so many VITALLY IMPORTANT issues been called to question - all within a single election.  Rarely has there been so much at stake.  The unfortunate part about that is that so many people - being in full possession of the ability to affect those outcomes - will make a CONSCIOUS DECISION to do, instead......absolutely nothing.


    These are the facts:


    The financial credibility of the USA is all but gone, with a deficit hoverin around $20T (that's $20 Trillion):  How, then, will our currency continue to compete - or even survive - in the future 'Marketplace of the World'?


    We've all but exiled and made null those few citizens who are the ONLY LINE of defense and barrier between the 'Safe Haven' that is our country and the cold, cruel world that lies beyond our borders - our Veterans:  How will we continue to count on those who have VOLUNTEERED to serve their country? 


    Status Quo Politicians have all but erased the separation of Church and State, creating laws with unspeakable demands:  When the Catholics in our country are summarily forced to perform abortions, will anything that we hold sacred remain?


    Our Nation is bursting at the seams with those whose Jihad would see them die - just to see us die:  Will this massive influx of non-Americans, purposefully brought to our country by a Falsely Inserted POTUS dilute and muffle the Great Voice that used to be the Heartbeat of our Nation?

    Hello Every One Thanks for Listening!


     It's been extremely busy and crazy as we all have "grinded" through the month of January 2016, and I ask myself: "did we just celebrate Christmas and New Year of 2015!"  Now here we go again- lather, wash, and rinse.  And ofcourse, we are celebrating and honoring Black History Month.  I don't know about ya'll, but I feel like I'm in the Twi-lite Zone! 


    I encourage you to join me as I share with you some Great History, Fun Facts and Trivias for the whole family to enjoy!  Everyone has a "history" and this includes you and I.  Have you ever stopped to think or consider how your life or "history" may have inspired others or how you may have impacted someone elses life in a very profound way?  WOW, many times, I thank GOD for allowing positive and influential "people" to come into my life and help shape me into the Woman I am today.  I believe  all of us have something to contribute to our History and Culture, so let's not forget to Honor and Celebrate those individuals who have "paved" the way and made great contributions and Sacrifices for our Land.  Celebrating Great History is fun...
