Carter Reads the Newspaper by Deborah Hopkinson


This biography tells the story of Carter G. Woodson. A boy whose parents were both slaves, worked hard and eventually became the only black in history to receive a Phd in history as a son of parents who were slaves. As a reaction to a professor saying that Blacks have no history, he made it his goal to share about black history through the creation of Black History Week which is now Black History Month today.
