Carter G Woodson

#PositivityPause for Inspiration and Encouragement.

As I strolled down Rhode Island Avenue in Washington DC, I came upon the statue of Carter G Woodson, the father of African-American History, and I could not resist the opportunity to thank him for the amazing legacy and gift of knowledge that he left for generations to come.

βœ…He was born in New Canton, Virginia to former slaves on Dec 19th, 1875 and died in 1950.

βœ…He started high school at age 20 because he had to work to help his family but completed it in 2 years.

βœ…He was the second African-American to earn a doctorate in history from Harvard in 1912.

βœ…In 1926, he started the lasting celebration and remembrance of black history during February.

βœ…Woodson felt African-American history had been neglected and misrepresented in academia and wrote multiple books on African-American history, the most famous of which is “The Mis-Education of the Negro”.

βœ…He believed racism could be overcome through education.
