This week we are highlighting The Father of Black History 
Carter G Woodson  

Picture
 
Since 1926 Americans have recognized black history annually. Carter G. Woodson established "Negro History Week" which later turned into later as "Black History Month." We owe the celebration of Black History Month, and more importantly, the study of black history, to Dr. Carter G. Woodson. Born to parents who were former slaves, he spent his childhood working in the Kentucky coal mines and enrolled in high school at age twenty. He graduated within two years and later went on to earn a Ph.D. from Harvard. The scholar was disturbed to find in his studies that history books largely ignored the black American population-and when blacks did figure into the picture, it was generally in ways that reflected the inferior social position they were assigned at the time.

In 1926, Woodson launched Negro History Week as an initiative to bring national attention to the contributions of black people throughout American history. Woodson chose the second week of February for Negro History Week because it marks the birthdays of two men who greatly influenced the black American population, Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.

It is good to hear that there is a so called Black History Month. I believe that everyone should be given an equal treatment, hence there should not be any racism. It is evident that Dr. Carter Woodson did a very admirable work in terms of coming up with this. He was able to protect the rights of the black Americans and more importantly, their dignity. I think that each person should be aware of this and not just those who reside in the States. Overall, it is nice of you to write this article and highlight the father of black history.
