What You Should Know About 'Father of Black History' Carter G. Woodson

Black History Month Events Include Presentation About Little Rock Nine, Black History 101 Mobile Museum Exhibit and Free Screening of “Baltimore Rising”

Today, at the beginning of Black History Month, Google has chose to celebrate the "father of black history" Carter G. Woodson. I am sure that if President Obama had lost the election we would have said that it was because he was black.

Over the years, Black History Month has been used as a means to integrate the role played black Americans into our historical narrative. Woodsons most famous work is The Mis-Education of the Negro, originally published in 1933, in which he argued that black students were being culturally indoctrinated instead of taught. 2 program will run from 6 to 9 p.m.in the school's cafeteria.

Ford was the first president to recognize Black History Month in 1976.

Wednesday, February 21- Black History Film Series, showing "STEP", 7 p.m.

"African Americans in Times of War: A Resilient Spirit" at the African American Art & Culture Complex, Burial Clay Theater, 762 Fulton St., San Francisco, Saturday, Feb. 10, 12 noon-8:00 p.m. He was among the earliest scholars of black history.

College. In 1926, Woodson began "Negro History Week", the precursor to what we now know as Black History Month.

Wilson is looking forward to "having some kind of celebration of black students and black culture, since there's not a lot of it that's really present in Boone, and what presence there is is really small", Wilson said. The gala was first created by the Black Student Union executive board, which felt it was necessary to commemorate those African Americans who had created a more diverse and inclusive atmosphere but were going unrecognized.

African American/Black History Month runs through the month of February. Only through learning more about the person in front of them will true understanding and acceptance be possible, she added.

Over the course of the next month, nearly every day will feature some sort of social or educational opportunity to celebrate and learn about the black community. "We have a lot of stories to tell and they're beneficial, not just for Black Canadians". "I think it's very Eurocentric in most general history courses and I think there's a lot of lack of knowledge about, like, African-American culture and history and important figures beyond the most obvious ones".

The society will collaborate with the Confederation Centre Public Library on activities and host events at locations such as the Startup Zone, Upstreet Craft Brewing and City Cinema.
