The daughter of Queen Ismenie, Makeda, also referred to as the Queen of Sheba, was born in Ophir 1020 BC. Legends about the Queen of Sheba are told throughout Ethipoia and several other middle eastern countries. She is described as a queen who had possessed the gift of ruling with a woman's heart, as well as with a man's head and hands. She is especially remembered for her betrayal of her culture's gods to begin following the Israelites (Jews).

Queen Hatshepsut, meaning Foremost of Noble Ladies was the fifth pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty of Ancient Egypt. She is generally regarded by Egyptologists as one of the most successful pharaohs, reigning longer than any other woman of an indigenous Egyptian dynasty.

Everything they teach about Egypt in most schools is distorted. The people of Egypt called their country Kemet not Egypt. Kemet means black land. Egypt is a Greek concept. Egypt is derived from the Greek word Aegyptos. The greeks called the kemetians  language hieroglyphs, but the people of Kemet called their language Medu Neter. Even the names we learn of the gods are wrong.

In 2005, James Winkfield, a Thoroughbred jockey and horse trainer from Kentucky, best remembered as the last African American to ride a winner in the Kentucky Derby, was also honored with a Congressional House Resolution, a few days before the 131st Derby. Such accolades came long after his death in 1974 at age 91 and decades after racism forced him and other black jockeys off American racetracks."

Kenneth and Mamie Clark. The Clarks were both psychologists who were well-known for their research w/ children, specifically the doll experiment, where they would give a black child the choice between a black doll a white doll then ask them to pick the doll they thought was “pretty" or "nice", among other questions. They'd later go on to use the research to testify in the courts for several school desegregation cases. #blackhistorymonth
