Backstory and Context
After many years dealing with government bureaucracy, the Carter G. Woodson Memorial Committee was able to begin construction of a statue honoring Dr. Carter G. Woodson in 1992. The statue and HUD housing designed for selected African-American families are located on the original grounds of the Douglass Junior and High School, Woodson's Alma Mater and where Woodson taught and was a principal, were completed and dedicated in 1995.
