Black history IS American history. Through the trials and tribulations that African Americans have suffered, we have continued to not only survive, but thrive. This year we choose to honor eleven different men and women who have greatly impacted our country in a myriad of ways, as well as historic events that helped transform America's racial landscape. From the Little Rock Nine to the Tuskegee Airmen. From George Washington Carver to Barack Obama, this calendar spends the year trying to ensure the legacies of so many historical figures that paved the way from the past, in order to guide our future.
