Carter G. Woodson

a.k.a. Carter Godwin Woodson

Author Code: ACWD

Born: Dec. 19, 1875 - New Canton, Virginia, USA

Died: Apr. 3, 1950 - Washington D.C., USA

Woodson was the son of former slaves and had an empoverished childhood. Nevertheless, he educated himself so that he was able to finally enter high school at the age of twenty.He graduated in 1897 and began teaching in public schools. By 1900 he had become principal of Douglass High School. He attended Berea College in Kentucky and received his BA in Literature in 1903. He then took a teaching position in the Philippines, returning in 1907 to continue his education at the University of Chicago. In 1912, he completed his PhD from Harvard University, becoming only the second Black to do so. Woodson continued to teach in public schools until joining Howard University as a professor, and served as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. He was aware of the lack of history of the role of Blacks in American culture and began to correct that wrong by writing, beginning with The Education of the Negro Prior to 1861 (1915). Also that year, he founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, and its publication The Journal of Negro History. In 1920, he became the Academic Dean of West Virginia Collegiate Institute, serving for two years. In 1926, he received the NAACP's Springarn Medal. Woodson died suddenly from a heart attack at his home at the age of 74. He is probably the most important Black historian and his many works include A Century of Negro Migration (1918), The History of the Negro Church (1921), Negro Orators and Their Orations (1925),Negro Makers of History (1928), The Rural Negro (1930), The Story of the Negro Retold (1935), African Heroes and Heroines (1939) and The Works of Francis J. Grimke (1942).
