BLACK HISTORY More Than Just a MONTH
Extraordinary black people who succeeded in the face of oppression
February is Black History Month, a time to feature the lives of black people who succeeded in the face of oppression. Beyond luminaries like Martin Luther King Jr., Ella Fitzgerald and Jackie Robinson lie stories of ordinary black people who succeeded in the face of oppression. This project’s content and theme title are from Time Magazine 18 Feb. 2008.

The new eight-volume set of books, the African American National Biography (AANB), recounts the lives of 4,080 black people in America, past, present, famous and obscure. A few of those lesser-known lives are featured on this site as well as those of African Europeans who excelled in inspiring ways.
