Take a moment to see the current exhibits at the Doherty library. Now through February we will point out books about prominent African Americans that shaped the history of the United States of America. Carter Godwin Woodson, Ph.D. (1875 – 1950) is a focus for this exhibit.
Dr. Woodson is an author, journalist, artist, and founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History.
Dr. Woodson’s academic pursuits include earning a M.A. from the University of Chicago in 1908 and a Ph. D. from Harvard University in 1912. He founded the Journal of Negro History in 1916.
We also want to take a moment to point out carnival season and celebrate Mardi Gras. Congratulations to our Mardi Gras Royals. The University of St. Thomas Mardi Gras Chairs selected Alfonso Moreno and Adrienne Copeland to represent the student body during the 65th annual Mardi Gras Gala at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 17th at the Hilton Americas – Houston Hotel. Moreno and Copeland, who will graduate this May, said they are both honored and humbled to be crowned King and Queen.
