Brenda Stevenson Awarded 2018 Carter G. Woodson Scholars Medallion
October 8, 2018

Congratulations to Brenda Stevenson, who was awarded the 2018 Carter G. Woodson Scholars Medallion from the Association for the Study of African American Life and History.

Established in 1993, the Carter Godwin Woodson Scholars Medallion is presented to a scholar whose career is distinguished through at least a decade of research, writing, and activism in the field of African American life and history. The recipient’s career should embody and personify the Woodson legacy to ensure a firm foundation for the continuance of African-centered education through dedication and commitment to African-American history. Dr. Woodson devoted his entire life and resources to chronicling African American history and the recipient must have continued his tradition of correcting the deficiencies in American history where African American History is misinterpreted or distorted.
