Carter Godwin Woodson (December 19, 1875 April 3, 1950)was an African-American historian, author, journalist and the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. Woodson was one of the first scholars to study African American history. A founder of Journal of Negro History (now titled The Journal of African-American History), Dr. Woodson has been cited as the father of black history.

Family members of Dr. Woodson, including the oldest living member of the family, were honored at the African-American Festival in Cleveland.

Cleveland Mayor Frank G. Jackson proclaimed June 11, 2012 as Carter G. Woodson Day in Cleveland and gave a certificate to Thelma Woodson Phillips, the oldest living member of the Woodson family.
