Making Black History
As the first African-American female astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison once said, “Never be limited by other people’s limited imaginations.” The month of February is devoted to African Americans for their significant contributions and accomplishments throughout U.S. history, established when historian Carter G. Woodson proposed Negro History Week. African Americans have had a huge impact on American history and culture through activism on slavery, the Harlem Renaissance and the fields of arts, entertainment, science, politics, sports and several more. The historic achievements of inspiring and prominent figures like Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Maya Angelou and President Barack Obama have all played key roles in shaping this nationwide celebration.
