Although today is the last day of Black History Month, we never forget the ones who paved the way. Here are some overlooked heroes we thought should be honored today…
Hattie McDaniel-The first African-American to win an Academy Award for Best Actress.
Edward A. Bouchet-The first African-American to receive a Ph.D. at an American university
Madam CJ Walker-Not just the first African-American millionaire, but the first female millionaire who achieved that status through work rather than marriage
Guion Bluford-The first African-American astronaut to reach space.
Oscar Micheaux– The first African-American Filmmaker
Fritz Pollard-First African-American Coach in the NFL.
