Carter G Woodson was an educated advocate of the African American culture He was the son of enslaved African Americans who earned the nickname The Father of Black History after he founded The journey of History in 1910 and began Negro History in 1926 which is known today as Black History In this essay I will emphasize Dr Woodsons views of why we should study the experiences of African-American descended peopleFor decades Black history has been known to teach us that African American people were most significant for being a slave to the white man Oppressor We learn how the African American was influenced by the Oppressor to believe that he is superior and the African American is unworthy Because of this He lacks confidence in himself and fails to believe that he can be anything more than that of a slave The abolition of slavery act passed in 1833 is a pleasant reminder that we as African American descendents possess self-integrity and were able to conquer this painful crisisAccording to Carter G Woodson We should study the experiences of African American descendents to learn that the Negro can be made proud of his past and accomplishments because so many believe it is unimportant Carter Woodson emphasizes that if we study our past we can be made proud of whom we are by sharing our own personal experiences with others If you teach the Negro that he has accomplished as much good as any other race he will aspire to equality and justice without regard to race Yes it is important to learn about ourselves because education is the key to growth and maturity In our heist to forget about the past we do not allow ourselves to progress in the future We choose not acknowledge our pasts because we feel it to be too embarrassing and painful to relive We do not want our children to feel inferior but the very thing we shield
