Black History Month: Celebrating Those Who Came Before Us

  • Leaders You Should Know:  Below is a list of individuals not so frequently referenced, but who have made outstanding contributions to our society. 

  • While you may know pioneers in Black history such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, or Muhammad Ali, do you know Dr. Percy Lavon Julian, Gwendolyn Brooks or Dorothy Height?

    The book and movie Hidden Figures drew attention to the fact that many significant achievements have occurred throughout history by people who were not recognized.  During Black History Month, we would like to recognize a person each day who made outstanding contributions to our society.  We would like to bring some of these hidden figures out of the shadow of history and into the light.
