American Champions 365 was designed to give some unsung Black Americans who have done outstanding work but you never hear about them because they are not in your history books when you were in school and tragically they are still being excluded to this day.
Over the past two years each and every day I post a different American Champion, so that is why I named the site American Champion 365. Not to take away the works of great leaders like Martin Luther King Jr, Rosa Parks, Shirley Chisholm and other Black Americans who have cemented their legacies in our history books. But being the historian that I am, I want you to understand that black history is living history. So on this website I are highlighting some of the past and living American Champions who have helped shape this great country and the current Black American who are championing today’s biggest issues. I want to teach and share with you these Individuals or Organizations and events that have or are still shaping the minds of us who sojourner on by their lead. Many of the people and movements who will properly likely not join their predecessors in the history books.
Abraham Lincoln stated in his Gettysburg address that “we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” I take his words personally by giving people the opportunity to read about such individuals you may have never heard of but their works and actions must not go in vain; With Malice toward none, with charity for all.
If your school, organization or workplace is looking for a speaker to come and speak on a subject or individual that you want the audiences to know more of please contact on the website and I would be more than happy to come and share my wealth of American Champions from the past or today. Enjoy the website!
Make it a champion day!
