Established on September 9, 1915 by Dr. Carter G. Woodson, they are the Founders of Black History Month and carry forth the work of their founder, the Father of Black History. They continue his legacy of speaking a fundamental truth to the world–that Africans and peoples of African descent are makers of history and co-workers in what W. E. B. Du Bois called, “The Kingdom of Culture.” ASALH’s mission is to create and disseminate knowledge about Black History, to be, in short, the nexus between the Ivory Tower and the global public. They labor in the service of Blacks and all humanity.
