Famous Black People Who Changed the World
As part of Ongig’s mission to celebrate all people year-round, I felt inspired to start a list of famous Black people in history. The folks on our list below achieved greatness, despite struggles they might have faced because of the color of their skin.
Here’s our list of 275+ of the most famous Black people — I know it’s only the tip of the iceberg, and I look forward to adding to this list regularly!
