This trail begins at the birthplace of Dr. Carter G. Woodson, known today as the Father of Black History for his scholarship and founding leadership of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, Journal of African American History, and Black History Month. The trail continues to the coalfields of southern West Virginia where Woodson worked before graduating and teaching at Douglass High School. The trail continues to Washington D.C. where Woodson lived for most of the remainder of his life after graduating from Berea College and earning a Ph.D. from Harvard University. This trail is a work in progress and more entries and information will be added throughout the coming months.
