African Americans are a proud people, with a rich history and legacy that stretches across centuries. That history and legacy are filled with individuals who have made significant impacts not only to their people, but society as a whole.

AProudPeople.com recognizes and honors those who are making contributions today. This is not just intended for stars and public figures; they get enough attention. We are looking for unsung heroes; the people in our neighborhoods, teaching our children or providing leadership and ideas.

Please recommend someone for recognition by visiting our Nominate page.
