ASALH James Weldon Johnson Branch Event, The Mis-Education of the Negro ZOOM Book Discussion
June 12 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
You’re invited to attend a special meeting of the James Weldon Johnson Branch of ASALH. At this meeting, we will pay tribute to our founder, Dr. Carter G. Woodson, the “Father of Black History.”
Friday June 12, 2021 10:00am EST
The topic for discussion will be the contents of the epic book written by Dr. Woodson entitled, “The Mis-Education of the Negro.” This is a must read for all would be historians. We are extremely proud to have this opportunity to revisit the year 1933 when this printed work was published and how interestingly it mimics our current time.
Thanks to the 15 members of the James Weldon Johnson Branch of ASALH who have consented to study and present a summary of their assigned chapters.
This event will be held online via Zoom.
