    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.

    A Tribute to Dr. Carter Woodson, the Father of Black History Month

    in Self Help

    Dr. Carter G. Woodson was born in Buckingham County, Virginia on Dec. 19, 1875, to former slaves, James & Eliza Riddle Woodson. His father helped Union soldiers during the Civil War & moved his family to West Virginia when he heard that Huntington was building a high school for Blacks.


    From a large, poor family, Dr. Woodson could not regularly attend school. Through self-instruction, he mastered the fundamentals of common school subjects by age 17. Wanting more education, he 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, Dr. Woodson entered Douglass High School, where he received his diploma in less than 2 years. From 1897 to 1900, Dr. 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 &  1903.


    Convinced the role of African American history & the history of other cultures was being ignored or misrepresented among scholars, Dr. Woodson saw a need for research into the neglected past of African Americans. Along with Alexander L. Jackson, Dr. Woodson published The Education of the Negro Prior to 1861 in 1915. He followed this book with The Mis-Education of the Negro in 1933.


    The Bronzeville neighborhood inspired him to create the Assn. for the Study of Negro Life and History in 1915. Now known as the Assn. for the Study of African American Life and History, it ran conferences, published The Journal of Negro History, and "particularly targeted those responsible for the education of black children".

    What are 5 symptoms of diabetes? If both of my parents are diatetics is it likely that I will be too. I was diagnosed with onset diabetes but I'm not on any medications. What foods should I stay away from.


    Why is it important to have blood pressure under control?  If I'm taking home made remedies (garlic water, apple cider vinegar, etc.) can I forgo my medications? Should I tell my doc that I'm taking home made remedies? why or why not??


    I'm 50 and feel out of sorts. My doc says I might be perimenopause?   I've never heard of this before.  What is it, where did it come from and what should I do about it?


    I hear of more people being diagnosed with late stage cancers. Are people ignoring the early symptoms or do certain cancers hide and make it difficult to diagnose.


    I am in my 50's and was told I need to loose 25 lbs to decrease joing pain. I've tried but can't seem to loose the extra pounds. My doctor gave me a presription for a weight loss medication but I'm afraid to try it. What are your thoughts on prescription medication to loose weight. I rmember the stories from the 80's about people developing heart problems.
