Gale’s Twenty-Eight Days of Hidden Figures

Gale’s Twenty-Eight Days of Hidden Figures

| By Tanisha Howard-Hall |

Every year about this time, we learn about influential African Americans that have made their mark on history. Since elementary school, I have learned about prominent figures such as Martin Luther King Jr., Harriet Tubman, George Washington Carver, and Marcus Garvey numerous of times. Although they’ve have made huge impacts in American history, I know there are far more African Americans who deserve their time in the spotlight. In order to recognize these hidden individuals, Gale will honor a different African American on social media with an unfamiliar fact about their contribution to American history.

What she loves most about Detroit is how the city produces some of the most hardworking, resilient, honest and raw people. The many challenges that the city has faced has made individuals who are from the city tougher, than most. Detroit people are like none other. They take pride in their roots while adapting to the many changes, all while staying faithful to the city.


Being able to witness the rebirth of Detroit is so magical. People are using open spaces for urban farming and greenways right in the middle of the city. It shows how they can use what they have and make something that’s not only new, but also useful and beautiful. This vibrant city has a lot to give.
