Carter Godwin Woodson was the son of former slaves. His father relocated the family to West Virginia because there was a Black high school being developed in the state.
Woodson obtained his Bachelor Degree at a college in Kentucky, his Master Degree at the University of Chicago and his Doctorate in history he obtained at the prestigous- Harvard University.
Like most who obtain higher education come to find, that Blacks had a major contribution to technology, society and world development; Dr. Woodson determined that the Nation needed to know about Blacks and moved to establish the, Journal of Negro History.
Dr. Woodson also published, The Mis-Education of the Negro which is a beautiful rendition of how the education system misrepresents the Negro mostly worldwide.
Woodson ignited, "Negro History Week" in 1926 and the week was later extended to the entire month of February.
Let us honor Dr. Woodson for his expertise, research and heavy influence on the world pressuring all scholars to reveal the truth about Black and their contribution.
No one is better than anyone else. All humans are capable of greatness, as a society, it is up to each individual person to acknowledge such truths, move to Global awareness thereof and promote oneness by instant virtue of worldwide redistribution...as a measure to end standardized methods of oppression against any person worldwide.
In speaking for each individual, Thank You Dr. Woodson.
