  3. Devon Smith says:

    I remember the day Martin Luther King was shot.and it was on the news early in the morning showing photos of people pointing to where the shot came from while the Reverand was laying on the ground outside of the hotel he was staying

  4. Alicia Williams says:

    Equal education was a defining and memorable event in 1954. In the case of Brown v. Board the “separate but equal education” was overturned and equal education was made available for African Americans. The previous ruling in 1896 in the Plessy V. Ferguson case the Supreme Court had ruled that Blacks and Whites would have “equal but separate education”. However black schools had no electricity, supplies, indoor bathrooms and other essentials needed for a good education. The 1954 ruling for equal and unsegregated education was an empowering and notable event.

Also of course witnessing and participating in election of an African American President for the United States.

  8. Bagray112 says:

    MLK JR has always been notable to me. I know a lot of people will say the same but he was notable to me because of his ability to engage people into the cause. People give him so much credit but there were so many other of our a sisters that did Great things under his leadership that you will never hear about. That’s powerful!

  9. Marc Sample says:

    My best memory is the election of Barack Obama as yhe first black president of the United States.It gave me great pride to be an African American.

  10. Tamika says:

    President Obama’s winning the election will always be an African-American event I will always remembet. Although I am only in my late 30’s, I never thought I would live to see an African-American president. I felt this was a major step forward for our country. However, the Trayvon Martin incident showed me that we have more “steps” to make as a country to love and accept all men and women.
