Hi, everyone. Because February is Black History Month, I would like for this week's blog post to concentrate on those African-American leaders who helped to shape this country into what it is today.
In your comment, choose an African-American man or woman who was influential in shaping the culture of this country in one of the following ways, from the American revolution until the present day: politics, science, art/music, literature, or sports. In five sentences, give this person's biographical information, including birth date, the place where he/she lived, date of death (if applicable) and any other interesting information about his/her background. Then, use at least five sentences to explain this individual's contribution to American society; explain what he/she did, and why it's significant to American history.
Your comment will count as a homework assignment for this marking period.
Have an enjoyable--and safe--winter break.
