 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,

<DELETED>SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.</DELETED>

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

<DELETED>SEC. 2. FINDINGS AND PURPOSE.</DELETED>

<DELETED>    (a) Findings.--The Congress finds that:</DELETED>
        <DELETED>    (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.</DELETED>
        <DELETED>    (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.</DELETED>
        <DELETED>    (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.</DELETED>
        <DELETED>    (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.</DELETED>
        <DELETED>    (5) The Carter G. Woodson Home was designated as a 
        National Historic Landmark in 1976 for its national 
        significance in African-American cultural heritage.</DELETED>
        <DELETED>    (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.</DELETED>
        <DELETED>    (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.</DELETED>
<DELETED>    (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.</DELETED>
