Carter G. Woodson

Cater Godwin Woodson, the father of African American History, was born on this day in 1875.  Woodson founded The Journal of Negro History (now the Journal of African American History), which chronicles the lives and history of Africans in America.  The journal is published four times a year by the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, founded in 1915 by Woodson and Jesse E. Moorland.  Carter G. Woodson died on April 3, 1950 in Washington, District of Columbia at the age of 74.  Woodson’s contributions and research in African American history and culture is paramount.  He is an inspiration to Morphological Confetti, and all who love and research the history of African Americans.  God bless his soul.
