Established on September 9, 1915 by Dr. Carter G. Woodson, we are the Founders of Black History Month and carry forth the work of our founder, the Father of Black History. We continue his legacy of speaking a fundamental truth to the world--that Africans and peoples of African descent are makers of history and co-workers in what W. E. B. Du Bois called, "The Kingdom of Culture."

Ron Wolford's insight:
In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, we wanted to share our picks of the best children’s books of 2012 about African-American history. From a beautifully illustrated picture book of King’s I have a Dream speech to a wordless story of the underground railroad, these are books you and your students won’t want to miss.
Booker Taliaferro Washington rose from slavery to a position of power and influence. A realist and a man of action, he became one of the most important African-American leaders of his time. He was committed to improving the lives of African-Americans after the Civil War.
It is Julius Rosenwald who gets most of the credit. And by all accounts, when it comes to the more than 5,000 schools built in the south for African American children during segregation, he deserves much of it.
