DR. CARTER GODWIN WOODSON AND THE OBSERVANCE OF AFRICAN HISTORY

http://aalbc.com/authors/carterg.htm#.TvjwdDX-9ip

BY RUNOKO RASHIDI

"Only when lions have historians will hunters cease being heroes."
--African Proverb


Carter Godwin Woodson has been called the father of Black History Month. Carter G. Woodson (1875-1950), the son of former slaves James and Eliza (Riddle) Woodson, was born on a small farm in New Canton, Virginia. From an early age he possessed an unquenchable thirst for learning. When he could, he attended the local school, and eventually went to Berea College in Kentucky. Ultimately, he obtained a B.A. from the University of Chicago in 1907. In 1908 he attended Sorbonne University in Paris where he became fluent in French. He received a Ph.D. in History from Harvard University in 1912, becoming only the second African-American to earn such a degree. Woodson taught briefly and held educational administrative posts in the Philippines, at Howard University (where he was Dean of the School of Liberal Arts), and West Virginia State College.

Dr. Woodson was a member of the Niagara Movement and a regular columnist for Marcus Garvey's weekly publication--the Negro World. He was the founder, in Chicago in 1915, of the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History. In the same year he founded the Journal of Negro History--a publication still in existence. As a contributing writer for the Journal of Negro History, Woodson wrote more than a hundred articles and 125 book reviews.

 

Carter Godwin Woodson was the founder of Associated Publishers, founder and editor of the Negro History Bulletin, and the author of more than thirty books. Probably Woodson's best known book is The Mis-Education of the Negro, originally published in 1933 and still relevant today. In the Mis-Education of the Negro Dr. Woodson stated that:

 

"When you control a man's thinking you do not have to worry about his actions. You do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder.

He will find his 'proper place' and will stay in it. You do not need to send him to the back door. He will go without being told. In fact, if there

is no back door, he will cut one for his special benefit. His education makes it necessary."

 

In 1926 Woodson initiated the annual February observance of Negro History Week. He chose February for the observance because February twelfth was Abraham Lincoln's birthday and February fourteenth was the accepted birthday of Frederick Douglass. By the 1970s, Negro History Week had expanded to become Black History Month.

 

Dr. Carter G. Woodson was truly a great man; an intensely dedicated soldier in the cause of African freedom and redemption. We proudly salute and praise him, and … we dedicate ourselves to extending Black History Month to the entire year and the unending and unceasing celebration, recognition and commemoration of the global history of African people.

Over 100 Years Later, The Miseducation Of The Negro Should Not Be Relevant

by

C. Earl Campbell DA 3rd

I have read Dr. Carter G. Woodson’s book, “The Miseducation Of The Negro” some 20 years a part.  First as a college student at Jackson State University and second as member of a a leadership program a few years ago.  What is often not know is that Dr. Carter G. Woodson was a member of Omega Psi Phi, Fraternity Inc. and it was his fraternity that created the concept of Negro History Week and ask Dr. Woodson to spearhead the effort.  

What saddens me today is the lack of Black Men with the courage to provide leadership for the Black African American Community.  Sure, we have Black Faces in high places in all areas, but they have neither the courage or consciousness to address the current conditions of Black African American People.  Our unemployment and poverty levels have not been this high since the Great Depression.  Even President Obama fails to provide leadership, instead offering excuses about how bad it was, or would have been, exPresident Bush or the Republicans or it takes time.  Leaders solve problems without excuses. He showed leadership when it came to bailing out the banks and auto industry.  I guess it’s okay to let Black People Fail. 

Black People should be held accountable for our own insane behavior of electing the same fail leaders who continue to not lead.  We are mesmerized by great speeches that makes us  feel proud and warm an fuzzy on the inside, while being unable to earn a descent living, pay bills or provide for our family.

I never like to offer criticism without offering solutions.  I've written a  Black Empowerment Plan entitled "The Quiet Resolution" or "TQR".  I've submitted several business proposals to President Obama and his administration; a National High Speed Rail Transportation System, a renewable energy solution http://www.aheceEnergy.com, and a United States Postal Services Solutions that would have created million of jobs and turned this economy around.  I have also written an eBook entitled "Reparations Now! For Black African Americans And Here's What We Want", which provides a 21st century strategy for getting and using Reparations for our empowerment that includes a dual strategy for self empowerment, incase Reparations are denied.

As a conscious writer, poet, singer, innovator, inventor and entrepreneur, I seek to collaborate without greed in an effort to uplift and empower Black African Americans. This can be done without the need to promote hate of others, fear or control.  We are a mighty race of people with the ideas, skills and ability to change our current conditions within one year with determine and unafraid leadership who would rather die, than participate in and be rewarded for the helping to maintain our people in their current conditions.  A majority of Black African Americans are asleep, unconscious or drunk with the wine of a Blackman in the White House. We have more churches, preachers, fraternities and sororities and nonprofits organizations than we ever had, whose role is the serve the "Poverty Industrial Complex" that help to maintain Black People in Poverty.  Their leadership has a direct correlations to our current conditions.
