He worked in public schools in West Virginia, the Philippines, and Washington, D.C., where he taught at the Paul Laurence Dunbar High School. Woodson founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History in 1915, the Journal of Negro History in 1916, and Negro History Week (now celebrated as Black History Month) in 1926.
