The theme for Black History Month 2008 is "Carter G. Woodson and the Origins of Multiculturalism." Known as the "Father of Black History," Woodson was an intellectual leader of the early twentieth century who created the Association for the Study of Afro-American Life and History and sought to educate society on the importance of cultural diversity in democracy. FindLaw's Black History Month page includes information and resources from the Library of Congress, the Association for the Study of African-American Life and History, biographical information on Carter G. Woodson, and much more.
