"If all records told the same tale —
then the lie passed into history and became truth."
from 1984 by H.G. Wells.
Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson
"When you control a man's thinking you do not have to worry about his actions. You do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder. He will find his 'proper place' and will stay in it. You do not need to send him to the back door. He will go without being told. In fact, if there is no back door, he will cut one for his special benefit. His education makes it necessary."
In honor of all the work that Dr. Carter G. Woodson has done to promote the study of African American History,
an ornament of Woodson hangs on the White House's Christmas tree each year.
