Carter G. Woodson quotes on why it is important to know your history

1. “We should emphasize not Negro History, but the Negro in history.” — Carter G. Woodson

2. “What we need is not a history of selected races or nations, but the history of the world,

void of national bias, race, hate, and religious prejudice.” — Carter G. Woodson

8. “The bondage of the Negro from Africa is one of the greatest dramas in history, and

the writer who merely sees in that ordeal something to approve or condemn fails to

understand the evolution of the human race.” — Carter G. Woodson

9. “If you teach the Negro that he has accomplished as much good as any other race he will

aspire to equality and justice without regard to race.

Such an effort would upset the program of the oppressor in Africa and America.

Play up before the Negro, then, his crimes and shortcomings. Let him learn to admire the

Hebrew, the Greek, the Latin, and the Teuton.

Lead the Negro to detest the man of African blood–to hate himself.” — Carter G. Woodson

Woodson formed an organization..the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History.

The ASNLH created outlets like Journal of Negro History and the Negro History Bulletin.

In 1926, he launched the annual Negro History Week...

In 1976..former President Gerald Ford urged Americans to “..honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.”

Ford then expanded Negro History Week into Black History Month.

Carter Godwin Woodson (December 19, 1875 – April 3, 1950) was an American historian, author, journalist, and the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. He was one of the first scholars to study the history of the African diaspora, including African-American history. A founder of The Journal of Negro History in 1916, Woodson has been called the "father of black history". In February 1926 he launched the celebration of "Negro History Week", the precursor of Black History Month.

I declare black history every day to learn about your powers for freedom in this country.

Most Africans and African Americans 2022 have NEVER, and will NEVER be called "negros"..

.."negros" is a direct Historical line of euroCENTRIC COLORED'whiteSupremacy' Racism

.."negros" is a direct Historical line to the slavery n IGGA..a despised African Denigration

AGAIN, I conclude that Woodson facts seem, to enablement of COLORED'whiteSupremist'

AND..'The Mis-Education of the Negro.' seems old negroSlave ramblings of belief in inferiority..

..I and MOST African Americans, African Asians despise that carter deaCON term..

..I and MOST African Americans, African Asians NEVER see deaCON "powers for freedom"

deaCON should declare a month or more of UPDATING olde negroInferiority thought...

Mr. Robert Powell, No one here ever made the claim of Most Africans and African Americans 2022 I 'am talking about a man who lived between (1875–1950) during that time the African Americans was called Negro and you know that to be a fact.

Did you know that In 1933, American historian and educator Carter Woodson (1875-1950) delivered a powerful and prophetic denouncement of `Euro-centric`school curricula that still rings true.

That sounds like something you would say but Carter G. Woodson did in his life.

carterWoodson "negro" was born of slaverAmericana against the African-1619-1970..

..NO AfricanAsian used term "negro-black" BEFORE euroCENTRIC racistEuro world expansion!

THAT deaCON 'negro-black' term MUST be SHATTERED just as slaverAMericana was shattered

Reverend Martin Luther King..stated 'injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.'

"..If an American is concerned only about his nation, and not be concerned about the peoples

of Asia, Africa..nations engage in this madness without the slightest sense of penitence?

..the murder of a citizen of your own nation is a crime, but the murder of citizens of another

nation is an act of heroic virtue?

..religion which professes to be concerned with the souls of men and is not concerned with

the economic conditions and the social conditions that cripple them, is a dry-as-dust religion.

A religion true to its nature must also be concerned about man's social conditions..."

*********************************************************************************************************

..Schools, Libraries and the Internet SHOULD always be used for Educational Research...

..Schools of Higher Mature Education SHOULD always be used for Personal Development...

Private, Schools and Academies SHOULD teach what their Board of Directors have OKAYED ...!

..Educated, Successful African American Family Members can Debate any SUBJECT they wish..

WITH the Example of BIA, Genesis Mrs. Soledad Obrien to "shatter" old Historical MISCONCEPTIONS!

..As the Human Being evolves, and science/technology changes; so SHOULD Historical Thought..!

2022 American Children who listen and seem to be entertained by the hipHop-WAP-(b i t c n IGGA)
