Unsung Heroes

I discovered a cool thing that The Times is doing in honor of Black History Month. In Monday’s New York Times evening briefing, The Times featured several never before published images from its photo archives. It features photos of African American icons like: Jackie Robinson, Lena Horne, a young Kareem Abdul Jabba, and Representative Adam Clayton Powell Jr.

My goal each year is to expose my students to African Americans from a variety of backgrounds, occupations, and perspectives. This is a good resource to use if you are building your list of African American politicians, musicians, and athletes to study during the month of February. Click here to read Unpublished Black History.
