See our article about Black History Month here.
We owe the celebration of Black History Month, and more importantly, the study of black history, to Dr. Carter G. Woodson. Born in 1875 in Buckingham County, Virginia, Woodson spent his childhood working in the Kentucky coalmines. He entered high school at the age of 20 and taught elementary school for two years after his graduation. He later studied at Berea College, the University of Chicago, and Harvard University, receiving a Ph.D. degree from Harvard in 1912.
