Forging Pathways to Multiculturalism and
Interracial Understanding in the Twenty-First
The purpose of this proposal is to solicit support in
hosting a series of ―Woodson/Franklin Talks‖ co-
sponsored with the Association for the Study of
African American Life and History, Inc. (ASALH). The
purpose of the ―Woodson/Franklin Talks‖ would be
to engage the public in a series of ―courageous
conversations‖ that will address the problem of ―
race‖ and methods of ―racial reconciliation‖ pursued
historically in the United States and around the world.
The thoughts and ideas of Dr. Carter G. Woodson
found in his 1933 seminal work The Mis-Education of
the Negro and in Carter G. Woodson’s Appeal,
written in 1921, but published in 2008, will serve as
the springboard for this series of conversations.

We need your help to reconnect with past members!
Do you know where they are?
In the past, there were ASALH Branches in the following states and cities within these states:
Arkansas (Marianna); Ohio (Shaker Heights, Columbus, Wilberforce, Toledo);
Georgia (Atlanta, Savannah); New Jersey (Sickleville, East Orange (2), Mt. Laurel); Missouri (St. Louis);
South Carolina (Orangeburg); Tennessee (Chattanooga); Wisconsin (Milwaukee); Delaware (Newark);
Connecticut (Hartford); Texas ( Houston and Dallas), and Kentucky (Louisville).
These branches no longer exist and we would like to revitalize them. If you live in these areas or know
someone who does and may be interested in forming a branch, please contact the ASALH Executive Director,
Sylvia Y. Cyrus at Executive Director. We are working to form new branches, revitalize inactive branches, or
reconnect with members who we have lost contact over the years. Thanks for your help with this matter.
