Dr. Carter G. Woodson
BLACK HISTORY MONTH
By: Brianna Spurlock February, 1st, 2014
A lot of people celebrate “Black History” month but are unaware of how it all begun. In 1915, Dr. Carter G. Woodson who is the son of former slaves and the second black person to receive a degree from Harvard University and Rev. Jesse E. Moorland who co-founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH) with Woodson. African American history goes back to the colonial period when Africans were first brought here as slaves. During this time history books either misrepresented African Americans or provided no information at all on the African Americans struggles or icons. Their objective behind creating the ASNLH was to do research and bring awareness of the African Americans role within our world’s history. In 1916 they published, “The Journal of Negro History”, which is now referred to “The Journal of African American History”.
In addition, Woodson organized in 1926 the first, “Negro History Week” during the second week of February to coincide with Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln birthdays who participated drastically in the freedom of slaves. If you are uninformed Frederick Douglas is one of the nation's leading abolitionists and Abraham Lincoln issued and signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Around the 1970s the ASNLH changed their name to the Association for the Study of African American Life and History and changed “Negro History Week” to “Black History Week”. Dr. Carter G. Woodson died in 1950 and 26 years after his death in 1976, “Black History Week” was extended to “Black History Month” to carry on Dr. Carter G. Woodson legacy and many other African American Icons.
