Celebrating Black Excellence

Once again February has come and gone and for the second straight year, I almost neglected to create a post to celebrate Black History Month.

Last year I spent too much time trying to make my writing politically correct that before I knew it, BHM had come and gone. This year I found myself facing the same dilemma. Since I had a hard time deciding what to write, I decided to keep it simple. Please enjoy this Portrait Gallery paying homage to those who have transformed African American History, leaving a footprint for success that will last for ages.

This gallery is not a full representation of all African American leaders and influencers. The leaders, artists, entertainers, and personalities featured are just a few individuals that, in my opinion, have had a significant impact within the African American community.
