Chartered Branch of ASALH

Welcome To Manasota ASALH, Inc.

On these pages you will find information about Manasota ASALH’s events and activities and those of others in the community that relate to our mission. The national founder of ASALH, Carter G. Woodson believed that the mission of disseminating knowledge about Black history could best be achieved through branches such as our own. Consistent with that vision you will find Black history linkages on this site that we hope you will find helpful in exploring our rich history as a race of people. We see this site as a continuous work in progress designed to serve your needs.

The Miseducation of the Negro

Dr. Carter G. Woodson

“When you control a man’s thinking, you do not have to worry about his actions. He will find his “proper place” and stay in it. You do not need to send him to the back door. He will go without being told. In fact, if there is no back door, he will protest until one is made for his use. His education demands it.”
