The Journal of Negro History

In 1916, historian and civil rights advocate Carter G. Woodson published the first issue of the Journal of Negro History to give scholars a vehicle in which to publish their research about Black history. African American studies would not be fully accepted by mainstream historical journals until the 1960s. Pictured here is the title page from a bound collection of the first volume, published later in 1916 by the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, a Washington-headquartered group that Woodson had founded a year earlier.
