J. Robert Oppenheimer, born on April 22, 1904, was the scientific director of the Manhattan Project, the World War II project that developed the first nuclear weapons. He strongly opposed the development of the hydrogen bomb, however, and in 1953 was suspended from secret nuclear research as an alleged communist sympathizer, a case backed by Edward Teller. In 1963 he was reinstated and awarded the Enrico Fermi Award.

Cudjo Lewis (1841–1935) is considered the last survivor of the last slave ship to enter the United States. He was born around 1841 to a Yoruba family in the Banté region of Dahomey (today Benin). At age 14, he began his training as a soldier & was inducted into oro, the Yoruba secret male society; by age 19, he was undergoing initiation. His initiation training was cut short, however, in the spring of 1860 when soldiers from Dahomey raided his town, killing townspeople & taking prisoners.
