Martha’s Vineyard Branch Celebration of Carter G. Woodson’s 145th Birthday

December 15, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm UTC-5

Celebrate via Zoom the 145th Birthday of Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson Founder of The Association of The Study of African American Life and History
Tuesday, December 15, 2020
2:00 – 3:00 PM

Carter G. Woodson. The Mis-Education of the Negro Book Discussion. First published in 1933 in Washington, D.C. by Associated Publishers. The contents are the same as the 1933 Associated Publishers edition, except for the capitalization of ‘Black’, and ‘Negro’; the converting of ‘tribe’ to ‘group’, and the correction of a few grammatical errors, edited by JPAS editor Itabari M. Zulu. Second, in this exercise, we also recognize a need for gender balance or neutrality in the phraseology of the author, therefore, we ask readers to consider the historical and social context of this analysis, and thus acknowledge that this work should open a door for a full critical and scholarly analysis of this historic book. (Source: Table of Contents of The Mis-Education of the Negro).

Prepare ahead of time to celebrate with a cupcake and a candle. We will light one candle and sing Happy Birthday Dr. Woodson. A Zoom Email was sent. Below is information to assist you in attending.
