[Large Portrait Print of the “Father of Black History,” Carter G. Woodson, issued by Associated Publishers, a Black Publishing House founded by Woodson].
[Washington, D.C.: Associated Publishers, Inc. c.1950s–1960s?]. Halftone print after a photograph. 22¾ x 18¾ inches overall; image 19¾ x 15¾ inches. Brief handling and faint toning in margins; Very Good.

An almost life-size portrait of Carter Godwin Woodson (1875–1950), the “Father of Black History” and founder of what is today the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. Woodson is shown seated in a chair looking to his left.

Associated Publishers, Inc. of Washington, D.C. were established in 1921 by Woodson to publish books on African-American history, including his own. Woodson began the annual celebration of what us now Black History Month in February 1926.

Jarvis R. Given’s 2021 book Fugitive Pedagogy: Carter G. Woodson and the Art of Black Teaching describes the firm’s long history of publishing portraits of important African Americans, “lithographs with suitable margins for framing.” These portraits were issued from the 1930s to possibly the 1960s.

As an example, in their 1939 catalog, Associated Publishers sold individual prints and sets of “Pictures of Distinguished [African Americans].” The catalog offered “Large Pictures” suitable for “Assembly Halls and Offices, Almost Life Size—19 x 24 Inches, $1.00 a Piece—Six for $5.00…They supply a long felt need for pictures large enough to be seen at a distance and easily recognized.”

Not in OCLC or in the collections of Howard University, including their digital “Associated Publishers Photograph Morgue.”
