About this title


In 1912, Woodson (1875-1950) became the first and only individual of slave parentage to earn a Ph.D. in history. He founded the Journal of Negro History, wrote and edited numerous books and publications, and through his research and writing established black history as a legitimate field of inquiry. This biography profiles a complex and dedicated pioneer. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

From the Back Cover:

In preparing this detailed biography of Woodson, the first book-length treatment of his life, Jacqueline Goggin conducted extensive research in archival sources throughout the country. From a paucity of primary materials, she provides as complete a account as possible of Woodson's humble upbringing and early influences. She also describes his education at Berea College, the University of Chicago, and Harvard University, and his early career as a teacher in the public schools of Washington, D.C., an experience that deepened his belief in the uplifting power of education for blacks.
