For many years now, the Mackinac Center for Public Policy has commemorated Black History Month by looking back into America’s historical past and finding wonderful examples of African American character, fortitude and entrepreneurship.

We’ve already posted this year’s installment, about former U.N. Undersecretary Ralph Bunche, which ran as our current comment on Feb. 2. But since all of these articles are still timely, we thought we would put them all in one place for anyone who would like to learn more about Black History Month and our rich African American heritage.
