History-making occasions are rarely recognized until they end up in the textbooks. As we face some of the most challenging and monumental events within Black culture today, there are plenty of moments that have made their mark on America.
In honor of Black History Month 2016, NewsOne will honor the accomplishments of our Black politicians, organizers, entertainers and everyday people who have undoubtedly contributed to this great nation.
