Publisher's Summary

During Black History Month, we pause to salute and reflect on the contributions African-Americans have made to the rich fabric that makes up the United States. There are many untold stories that reveal the best of Americans who stepped up when duty called, broke through barriers, or quietly made their communities better one person at a time.

Not everyone who has helped to change the country and the world always get the credit they deserve, even though their actions have the kind of impact that changes things for the better. There are many hidden figures of untaught history who deserve to be celebrated for their incredible contributions, but their names are left out of the narrative. Although American history often resonates with the names of many great African-American men and women, there are countless other lesser-known inspiring figures who have contributed significantly and helped to shape American and world history.

The African-American story often reflects on struggle, but there are many untold stories of inspiration, innovation, courage, genius, and bravery. Although not widely recognized, the men and women mentioned in this book have made significant contributions to the fields of science, politics, law, technology, civil rights, medicine, and beyond. Their personal stories and experiences may have been often overlooked, but their impact to our society and the world has been monumental. While African-American history is expansive and wide, there are generations of figures and heroes that we may be completely unaware of. Although scores of little-known individuals helped to shape history, from medical breakthroughs to fighting fearlessly through opposition, this group of historical heavyweights all deserve to be household names, along with their legacies etched into American history. Even though they didn’t get the recognition as other historic well known individuals, these hidden figures were just as instrumental. Along with their sacrifices and efforts, their accomplishments were just as pivotal to several historic movements.
