7 Of The Most Unrecognized Women in Black History
February 23rd, 2012 - By Erica Renee


Every February, in recognition of Black History Month, we’re  reintroduced to influential people in our history who have left marks in  their respective industries. These people were great. Their courage  surpassed their fear and they held steadfast in their fight for justice  and equality for the human race. Yet, while we’re constantly reminded of  the Dr. Martin Luther Kings, Harriet Tubmans, Malcolms, and Rosa Parks  of the past, there are many other black leaders that often go  unrecognized. Their paths were just as difficult and their fights just  as courageous.
So as Black History Month gets ready to come to a close, we would like to acknowledge seven of the least recognized women in black history. Some you may be familiar with by name, but not aware  of their stories. Others you will be introduced to for the first time.  These women paved the way for other women and blacks in general.
Check out our list of influential black women who may have missed the  mainstream recognition, but nevertheless played a pivotal role in our  history.
