“African Americans and the Arts”
Sponsored by The Dr. Carter G. Woodson Lyceum
Dr. Carter G. Woodson, the Father of Black History, said that the turning point in his career came during his West Virginia years, a period that included work in the coal mines, graduation from Huntington’s Douglass School (1896) and subsequent service as its principal. A statue of Dr. Woodson, located at 820 Hal Greer Blvd., honors his connections to Huntington and West Virginia. Marshall University memorialized Dr. Woodson’s achievements by creating The Lyceum in his honor.
