The Education of the Negro

The Miseducation of the Negro: Carter G. Woodson

How to fight Racism: Jemar Tisby


The Carter G. Woodson Presentation Competition is a way to recognize the impact of African American studies on the United States. Over many years Black History has been seen as a sub point to the greater American History even though it provides many of its greatest accomplishments. Through this competition, students will show their knowledge of the texts and of outside influences that directly affect the way the Black community has developed within this country. A scholarship will be awarded to the three recipients that demonstrate a coherent understanding of Dr. Woodson and Jemar Tisby’s work. This competition is open to all and we encourage students to invest in this opportunity.
