Black History Month, starting as Negro History Week, began as an effort by Carter G. Woodson (1875-1950) to recognize the valuable contributions Black (African) Americans have made in the United States and throughout the world. African American History which has been virtually ignored, is beginning to be acknowledged in classroom books and curriculums. However, enough has not been done to fully recognize the contributions of African Americans to history. Thus, qThe Black History Quiz Guideq was designed and created to further the goal that Carter G. Woodson was trying to accomplish, to present a fair picture of the role African Americans have played in American and World History. The black history quiz-guide is divided into eight (8) sections of black history facts. Each section begins with a black history worksheet. The worksheet is followed by fact sheets on the black history contributors who are listed on the worksheet at the end of each section. The answers to the worksheet are on the page that follows the facts. The black history quiz is designed to test your present knowledge of black history as well as enhance your knowledge of history. It is hoped that you will enjoy the quiz-guide as you enrich your knowledge of the contributions that African Americans have made to history. Dr. Cadmus S. Hull Dr. C.
