Black History Month is About More Than Just 10 Civil Rights Heroes

It’s that time of the year where the “woke” and “not-so-woke” make a concerted effort to celebrate Black History. But here at #PushBlack, we strive first to recognize our history everyday of the year, and second, to highlight historical icons who may not be known to the mainstream.

We were happy to come across The Undefeated’s list of 44 African Americans Who Shook Up the World. This list is dope becuase it’s not the quintessential ‘Most Influential Blacks in History,’ or ‘the Dopest Brothers and Sisters Who Matter Most This Week’ (in the words of the Undefeated). Rather, it’s a list that pays homage to the first African American president (cue the #44) and folks whose accomplishments carry weight across generations.

You’ll find names you may already know, and others not as well known. Either way, it’s worth a look. Check it out here.
