The Victorian row house in "Black Broadway" was once the modest office-home of Carter G. Woodson. The home was also the headquarters of the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH). Woodson dedicated his entire life to sustaining the early black history "mass education movement." He contributed immensely not just to African American history but also to American culture. Scholar Pero Gaglo Dagbovie unravels Woodson's "intricate" personality and traces his relationship to his home, the Shaw neighborhood and the District of Columbia.

    Biography of a person, a movement, and a house Comprehensive documentation of Woodson's life, his organization, and the house that hiused both dr. Carter and his organization. At times repetitive, and more detailed than I wanted (the size of the sign outside the building), and, like every other biography of Woodson I have read, lacking in details of his time in the Philippines. That said, it's an engaging read about a remarkable man, maintaining a good balance between scholarly details and a bio fo Biography of a person, a movement, and a house Comprehensive documentation of Woodson's life, his organization, and the house that hiused both dr. Carter and his organization. At times repetitive, and more detailed than I wanted (the size of the sign outside the building), and, like every other biography of Woodson I have read, lacking in details of his time in the Philippines. That said, it's an engaging read about a remarkable man, maintaining a good balance between scholarly details and a bio for the general public. I would use this with a teen for a schoolread, although I would only require the first half or so, which is about Woodson the man. While there is still material about Woodson himself, in the latter half the writer turns more to the history of the hiuse and organization.

    The Father of Black History is certainly deserving of a good biography. I was disappointed in this book. It had a lot of good factual information, but not written in an interesting style. I would have appreciated more of a personal look at his life to understand his motivation for preserving black histroy. Again, Carter G Woodson is deserving of a good biography. Hopefully, someday someone will write such a biography.
