Remembering Carter G. Woodson

Thanks to the pioneering advocacy of educator and scholar Dr. Carter G. Woodson, the annual public acknowledgement of the contributions of people of African descent to society has evolved from what began in February 1926 as "Negro History Week", into a month long tribute that we now refer to as Black History Month. 
3828834958?profile=originalAside from the creation of "Negro History Week", Dr. Woodson, who was a contemporary of both W.E.B. DuBois and Arturo A. Schomburg, also founded The Association For Negro (African American) Life and History in 1915, wrote articles regularly for Marcus Garvey's Negro World newspaper, and established Associated Publishers which has since gained the distinction of being the oldest African American publishing company in the U.S.

To Dr. Carter G. Woodson, the study and highlighting of Black history was much more than simply a celebration of noteworthy dates, facts or famous "firsts", but was viewed by him as a way to empower people with self knowledge while ensuring that a positive account of their historical achievements was given fair treatment and accurately reported.

Puzzles For Us acknowledges our collective debt to the groundbreaking work of Dr. Carter G. Woodson and pays homage to his life and legacy during Black History Month.
