According to Wikipedia, Carter Godwin Woodson was an American historian, author, journalist, and the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History . He was one of the first scholars to study the history of the African diaspora, including African-American history. A founder of The Journal of Negro History in 1916, Woodson has been called the "father of black history." In February 1926, he launched the celebration of "Negro History Week," the precursor of Black History Month.
