Summary, etc.:
Black History is an integral part of American History. This video highlights some of the most notable events and individuals of Black History and provides an in-depth introduction to key activists including W. E. B. Du Bois, Frederick Douglass, and Maya Angelou while also introducing individuals not often discussed in traditional history classes. Featuring events such as the March on Washington and Loving V. Virginia, this video gives an encompassing overview of over one hundred years of Black History. From Sojourner Truth's famous Ain't I a Woman? speech in 1851, which launched a career of speaking out against slavery and the mistreatment of women, to Maya Angelou being honored at Bill Clinton's inauguration, these glimpses into some of the most powerful moments and individuals in history will educate and inspire generations to come.
