This trail begins at a park dedicated in honor of Dr. Carter G. Woodson, known today as the Father of Black History for his scholarship and for his leadership in establishing the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, Journal of African American History, and Black History Month. The trail continues to his Washington D.C. home and then his Virginia birthplace and continues on to the coalfields of southern West Virginia where Woodson worked before graduating and teaching at Douglass High School. The trail currently ends in West Virginia but will be expanded to include additional stops all the way to Berea College where Woodson earned a degree before continuing on to Harvard University. This trail is a work in progress and more entries and information will be added throughout the coming months.
