ANSTED, W.Va. -- The African American Heritage Family Tree Museum is searching for photographs, documents and artifacts related to onetime Fayette County resident Carter G. Woodson.
Dr. Woodson was a railroad worker at Thurmond, a coal miner at Nuttallburg and a schoolteacher in Winona from 1892 to 1900. The museum will use the photographs, documents and artifacts to create a 2014 traveling exhibit. Photos and documents will be copied and returned.
Woodson graduated from high school in West Virginia and went on to earn a doctorate from Harvard University. He became known as the "Father of Black History." He established Negro History Week in 1926, which became Black History Month in 1976.
