Black History 2021


Growing out of “Negro History Week,” which was the brainchild of many prominent African Americans, including Carter G Woodson, Black History Month is a month dedicated to celebrating African Americans’ strides and accomplishments.

While Black History Month is ordinarily synonymous with more well-known figures like Rosa Parks and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., TLNYC is dedicating this Black History Month to stories of unsung African American Leaders.

“When I think about Black History, I always think about stories that people may not know,” said Toyin Ayanfodun, the Executive Director and Founder of Tomorrow’s leaders NYC. “The stories should be told as every form of Leadership – no matter how big or small – matters and is important to the major strides that we have made over the many years.”
