Dr. Carter G. Woodson
Founded by Dr. Carter G. Woodson in 1926 as Negro History Week, Black History has been celebrated in America (February) since then and world-wide for over 30 years.
Known as the “Father of Black History”, Woodson (1875-1950) was the son of former slaves, and understood how important gaining a proper education is when striving to secure and make the most out of one’s divine right of freedom.
Later on in life under Woodson created the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, Inc. Under his pioneering leadership, the Association created research and publication outlets for black scholars with the establishment of the Journal of Negro History (1916) and the Negro History Bulletin (1937).
Woodson’s diligent work paved the way for our Black Heritage Today, both online and hard copy.
The publishers of Black Heritage Today are interested in truth, history, the human experience, learning, and growing in strength, dignity and honour. Along with grass-roots features the publication gives coverage to other countries with stories that are not just relevant to the people of African heritage as a whole. The features are informative, educational and entertaining for all.
