[Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson (1875-1950)]

Excerpt from Black History & Classical Music,

February is Black History Month in Jamaica and the United States, and African Heritage Month in Canada.
October is Black History Month in the United Kingdom. The annual observance was founded in 1926 by the American historian Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson (1875-1950). He also founded the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH),

The 2008 National Black History Theme is "Carter G. Woodson and the Origins of Multiculturalism".
The 2008 Black History Kit includes a magazine, posters, an event planner, and a multi-faceted Learning Resources CD ROM. The items are available from the website, separately or as a kit. Black History is part of the common record of humanity. It proves that people of African heritage have made enduring contributions to society throughout history. Classical music has been enriched by such contributions as long as it has existed.
