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.

Promoting Black History Month at Your Library
Libraries are continuously looking to increase the reach of their resources, especially during Black History Month. That’s why I am proud to announce my personal tribute to the more undiscovered, influential African Americans: Gale’s Twenty-Eight Days of Hidden Figures in Biography In Context.
Each day in the month of February, libraries can highlight a different Hidden Figure, with helpful promotional tools such as videos and web banners. Libraries can showcase these Hidden figures and where to learn more about them, by featuring videos in the library on their television screens, on social media, or on the library website. Libraries can also reference a quick facts document, to uncover more details about each Hidden Figure’s life and accomplishment is Gale’s Biography In Context.
