Living in the Washington DC area affords the Bethel Dukes branch a great deal of opportunities to celebration the national and local history of ASALH. Dr. Woodson is buried in Lincoln Cemetery in Suitland, Maryland. We voted in December 2020 to make annual pilgrimage to the gravesite of Dr. Woodson. Interestingly enough there are many notables buried in Lincoln Cemetery – our branch namesake Mr. Bethel M. Dukes and his wide Piccola Dukes are directly across from Dr. Woodson – so our commemoration is doubly felt in celebration of our founder and branch namesake.
