Editorial Reviews


"Dagbovie . . . draws on the personal papers of these two seminal historians, along with materials from the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH), to chronicle the growth of the modern black history movement. . . . Recommended for all black history and historiography collections."--Multicultural Review

"As scholar-activists, Carter G. Woodson and Lorenzo J. Greene used their professional historical training not only to establish and further the subdiscipline of African American history, but also to help African Americans understand the importance and significance of their role in U.S. development. . . . Dagbovie has done well to highlight their careers and contributions. . . . Recommended."--Choice

"Dagbovie contributes benchmark research to US historiography. . . . [He] provides an unprecedented analytical account of two central black history innovators."--Journal of American History

Pero Gaglo Dagbovie’s The Early Black History Movement, Carter G. Woodson, and Lorenzo Johnston Greene highlights the life and influence of two of the most important men of the early black history movement. Associate professor of history at Michigan State University, Pero Gaglo Dagbovie explores the sacrifices, struggles, and successes of these influential figures. Dagbovie’s goal is to shine a light on the lives and the work of two tremendously important African American historians, while examining a variety of issues regarding each man.
The Early Black History Movement first chronicles the life and work of Carter G. Woodson, “the Father of Black History”, before moving on to Lorenzo Johnston Greene. Dagbovie conveys the importance of the movement and the contribution of these two men through their works, both written and socially. In addition, Dagbovie also discusses their relationship with The Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH).
Dagbovie masterfully creates a compelling narrative that not only discusses the written works of these two men, but also their importance to the advancement of African Americans. It is clearly presented that these men were more than just influential early black history movement scholars, but also social activists. Dagbovie demonstrates the manner in which these men used history as a means to ignite the fires of social change.
The Early Black History Movement provides excellent biographies of Carter G. Woodson and Lorenzo Johnston Greene. By examining their works and their lives, Dagbovie successfully highlights the sacrifices made by these men and the struggles they faced to address the need for social change. This book is a well-written account of two important figures that is indispensable for African American and American historians.
