Washington, DC 20005
- Historical Site,
Imagine a world in which people like you have no written history, or that which has been written is incomplete or distorted. Before Dr. Carter Goodwin Woodson (1875-1950) began his work, there was very little information, and much of that stereotypical misinformation, about the lives and history of Americans of African descent.
