African Americans are a proud people with a rich history of achievement. From the resilience of slaves determined to learn to read; to Booker T. Washington, Frederick Douglas and W.E.B. Dubois and the Civil Rights leaders such as Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and Medgar Evers. It’s others like Dorothy Height, Shirley Chisholm and Oprah Winfrey.
Yes, this site recognizes those well known people, but only as a means of inspiration. We want to know the unsung heroes, the teachers, coaches, community activists who give of themselves while receiving little or nothing in terms of financial reward. We need your help identifying these people. Go to the Nominate page to submit nominations for consideration and to the Vote page to vote on the Honoree of the Month.
