Woodson, an educator, historian and author who was known as the “Father of Black History.” Leading the discussion is Burnis R. Morris, the Carter G. Woodson Professor at Marshall University’s School of Journalism and Mass Communications who has written a new book on the life of the program’s subject, “Carter G. Woodson: History, The Black Press and Public Relations,” published by University Press of Mississippi.
