This year is a milestone year for the US and the study of Black History – ASALH turns 100 and Dr. John Hope Franklin would have been 100 years old. When Carter G. Woodson and others set out to form an organization that would educate and inform the world about the achievements and impact of Blacks, he did so with an immediate view and a hope it would flourish.
Dr. John Hope Franklin was living history to those of us who met him. He stressed the importance of being able to look back on the past and learn from it from those who lived it.
