Washington, D.C. Celebration December 19, 2013......138th birthday of Dr. Carter G. Woodson,



The Moorland-Spingarn Research Center at Howard University is pleased to be joining the Association for the Study of African American Life and History and the National Parks Service in celebrating the 138th birthday of Dr. Carter G. Woodson, founder of the Association, the Journal of Negro History (now the Journal of African American History), and the annual Black History Month commemoration.  Dr. Woodson founded the graduate program in History at Howard and served as Dean of its College of Arts and Sciences.  He has likely had a greater impact on the study of black history than any other single individual in the world.  This is to invite you to join us on December 19, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. for this annual celebration.

The event will be held at the historic Shiloh Baptist Church, 1500 9th St. NW.  Dr. Gregory Carr, esteemed Director of the African American Studies Department at Howard, is the featured speaker.  I hope you will join me and the staff at Moorland as we celebrate the life and legacy of one of our most distinguished pioneers in the preservation, interpretation, and celebration  of black history and culture.
