“In 1915, Carter G. Woodson helped found the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (later named the Association for the Study of African American Life and History), which had the goal of placing African-American historical contributions front and center.

Woodson established the scholarly publicationย Journal of Negro Historyย in 1916, and to help teachers with African-American studies, he created the Negro History Bulletin in 1937. Woodsonย also formed the African-American-owned Associated Publishers Press in 1921.

Outside of his writing pursuits, Woodson held down several positions in academia.ย He served as principal of the Armstrong Manual Training School in Washington, D.C., before becoming a dean at Howard University and the West Virginia Collegiate Institute.”
