Black Classic Press partners with the Association for the Study of African American Life and History


Recommended Posts

A True Publishing Partnership
Black Classic Press, in partnership with the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH,) is pleased to announce the launch of
The Woodson Series, which recognizes the pioneering efforts of Carter G. Woodson, The father of Black History Month, as a pub­lisher and institution builder.
"Our plan is to make these titles available as a complete collectors' library and encourage readers to enjoy them and share them with future generations," said W. Paul Coates, publisher for Black Classic Press.  
Black Classic Press Publisher Paul Coates is a long-time ASALH supporter, and The Woodson Series brings together books published by The Associated Publishers and ASALH between 1919 and 2005.
Working together, ASALH and Black Classic Press are combining resources to extend the life of these titles and make them available for today's readers. Black Classic Press is the only officially authorized republisher of these works.
Woodson founded The Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, which became ASALH, in 1915 and The Associated Publishers in 1921. In doing so, he created a unique vehicle for the production and dissemination of the information about people of African descent. The press shares Woodson's dedication to ensuring that knowledge about Black culture and history is accessible.

AALBC.com is working with Black Classic Press (BCP) to help promote and sell these books as well as all of BCP's titles.  If a visitor sees a book published by BCP on AALBC.com they will be given the option to purchase the book directly from BCP.

the-miseducation-of-the-nrego.jpgBooks like The MIseducation of the Negro, a 22 time AALBC.com bestselling book, already sells well here but there are still many people unaware of the title and the additional focus will benefit many readers.

The Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), which was started by Dr. Carter G. Woodson in 1915, is dedicated to continuing Woodson's work.  ASALH’s mission is to "create and disseminate knowledge about Black History, to be, in short, the nexus between the Ivory Tower and the global public. They labor in the service of Blacks and all humanity."

It is also worth noting that there are many different entities, and individuals, publishing The Miseducation of the Negro, as the title is in the public domain.  However BCP's partnership with the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) will ensure that you are getting the best reprint, with the highest fidelity.  However the most important reason for purchasing Woodson's books that have been published by BCP is that your purchases will directly support Carter G. Woodson's organization.

I've actually replaced all the other version of Woodson's books, published by other entities, in favor of the BCP/ASALH's reprints.

I'm telling you, the Black Book Ecosystem is growing stronger!
