_______________________________________________________________________

                                 AN ACT


 
 To establish the Carter G. Woodson Home National Historic Site in the 
             District of Columbia, and for other purposes.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``Carter G. Woodson Home National 
Historic Site Establishment Act of 2003''.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS AND PURPOSE.

    (a) Findings.--The Congress finds that:
            (1) Dr. Carter G. Woodson, considered the father of 
        African-American history, founded in 1915 The Association for 
        the Study of Negro Life and History, renamed as The Association 
        for the Study of African-American Life and History.
            (2) Through the Association, Dr. Woodson, the son of slaves 
        who earned a Ph.D. degree from Harvard University, dedicated 
        his life to educating the American public about the extensive 
        and positive contributions of African Americans to the Nation's 
        history and culture.
            (3) Under Dr. Woodson's leadership, Negro History Week was 
        designated in 1926. That designation has since evolved into 
        Black History Month in February of each year.
            (4) The headquarters and operations of the Association was 
        Dr. Woodson's home at 1538 Ninth Street, Northwest, Washington, 
        D.C., where he lived from 1915 to 1950.
            (5) The Carter G. Woodson Home was designated as a National 
        Historic Landmark in 1976 for its national significance in 
        African-American cultural heritage.
            (6) A National Park Service study of the Carter G. Woodson 
        Home dated June 2002, found that the Carter G. Woodson Home is 
        suitable for designation as a unit of the National Park System, 
        and is feasible for designation so long as property adjacent to 
        the home is available for National Park Service administrative, 
        curatorial, access, and visitor interpretative needs.
            (7) Establishment of the Carter G. Woodson Home National 
        Historic Site would foster opportunities for developing and 
        promoting interpretation of African-American cultural heritage 
        throughout the Shaw area of Washington, D.C.
    (b) Purpose.--The purpose of this Act is to preserve, protect, and 
interpret for the benefit, education, and inspiration of present and 
future generations, the home of the preeminent historian and educator 
Dr. Carter G. Woodson, founder of the organization known today as The 
Association for the Study of African-American Life and History.
