Carter G. Woodson

Burnis R. Morris

University Press of Mississippi

As an opinion journalist, Woodson wrote hundreds of newspaper columns on a variety of subjects. Some involved personal feuds. Others involved promotion of books he was publishing through Associated Publishers, his publishing firm, and his history movement through the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History. He also engaged readers on politics and an array of international issues. This chapter explores the themes of the columns for their news and promotional value and provides a rare listing of all his known newspaper bylines.
