The Black History Bowl: A Mini Quiz-Guide through Black History

 

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.  Black History Week was initiated in 1926 and evolved into Black History Month in 1976.  Black History Month has been celebrated in American schools since the 1970’s, thanks to the efforts of Dr. Woodson.  Dr. Woodson, known as the “Father of African-American History” wrote many books and articles to make people aware of African American history and achievements.  He founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History in Washington, D.C., in 1915.  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, “The Black History Bowl” 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 that is included in the following pages 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.
