NSRTC Black History Month Tributes

This post expresses the views and opinions of the author(s) and not necessarily that of The North Salem Post management or staff.

As Black History month comes to a close, the North Salem Republican Town Committee honors the man who started it all, Dr. Carter G. Woodson. Dr. Woodson is known as the father of black history month, by starting Negro History week in 1926 and his continual lifetime involvement as a historian of the African diaspora.  Dr. Woodson stated, “Those who have no record of what their forebears have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history”.  Read about Dr. Woodson’s numerous accomplishments at
