In this article for the Journal of Negro History, Carter G. Woodson, who is known as “the Father of Black history,” explores the history of interracial sex in the United States in comparison to other places in the world. He discusses several Virginia laws restricting interracial sex and marriage. Woodson founded the Journal of Negro History and was one of the first scholars to argue that Black people have a history worthy of study.
