Carter Godwin Woodson (December 19, 1875 – April 3, 1950) was an African-American historian, author, journalist and the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. Woodson was one of the first scholars to study African-American history. A founder of The Journal of Negro History in 1915, Woodson has been cited as the father of black history. In February 1926 he announced the celebration of "Negro History Week", considered the precursor of Black History Month.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Good!!! I cited it in my book!!!!
By Maurice Miles Martinez on April 9, 2021
The Mis-Education of the Negro by Dr. Carter G. Woodson is a classic. This book was so good that I had to refer to it in my book: The Real Wakandas of Africa (by Maurice Miles Martinez). Even though this book was written a century ago it is still applicable today. In his book, Dr. Woodson explained that Black people in America have been fundamentally taught about other people’s history. According to Dr. Woodson the curriculum in the school system focuses upon European creators of ideas (like the Greeks). Because of his focus, African Americans are left devoid of Black history that talks about the agency of Black people. (I might add that a good example of this can be seen in the oath that every doctor must take before becoming a medical doctor. This is called the hippocratic oath and is named after the Greek father of medicine Hippocrates. However, Hippocrates paid tribute to the black Egyptian Imhotep as the true father of medicine. So why then do we not rename this oath: Imhotep’s Oath or the Imhotepan Oath? To add to this, Dr. Woodson also details the painful fact that African Americans have had trouble starting their own businesses. As we know today, part of this stems from the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow segregation. This is made even more abundantly clear when one looks at the history of Africa and the fact that Africans were the first to create civilization. (if you can create civilization, starting a business is very easy). There is another important reason to read this book. Dr. Woodson is the creator of Black History Month. He started this as Black history week (called Negro history week at the time). Dr. Woodson‘s book has inspired many in the African-American community including Lauryn Hill who created the album: the Mis-Education of Lauryn Hill. There is little negative to say about this book. Personally, this book inspired me to become an author. It was one of the first books that my professors encouraged me to read. It still serves as inspiration in the books that I write such as: The Great Wall of Africa: The Empire of Benin’s 10,000 Mile Long Wall (by Maurice Miles Martinez). The book is a short read yet it is immensely powerful. Dr. Woodson made the point that American educational institutions encourage Black people to work for American companies (instead of starting their own companies). As Dr. Woodson explained: “Graduates of our business schools lack the courage to throw themselves upon their resources and work for a commission. The large majority of them want to be sure of receiving a certain amount at the end of the week or month.”Please pick up a copy of this book today. You will not be disappointed!
