Test your black history knowledge

February 8, 2009 

It's 2009 and black Americans are making historic strides. This has certainly been an era of firsts.

But we can't tell you what they all are. That's the point of this Black History Month Quiz, along with reminding you of past achievements. Open up the PDF to the right, grab a piece of paper, and test your knowledge on these freehand questions (no multiple choice guessing for you!). Let's see if you have been taking notes about these important facts.
