(and Forgotten Black Press Contributions to His Legacies)
Woodson was not the first black historian, but his research and advocacy were transformational in bringing about recognition of black history and including it within the American way of life. After his death, knowledge of Woodson’s partnership with the press was lost, but black history became so popular (and commercial) that the week he founded to commemorate black contributions in history now takes a month. Mainstream media have taken ownership of Black History Week/Black History Month, amid claims it has been commercialized.
